At Cheshire Pork we remind our customers that we are not just a breed. We have the advantage of more than 45 years of selective breeding by choosing only the top 3% of our heritage breeds, which is what gives our pork superior flavor, consistency in texture, and marbling.

For the past 40 years, the Ivey family has been raising heritage breed hogs on the family farm in Seven Springs, North Carolina. They have selectively bred a herd of Chester White hogs that is widely known for its intramuscular fat and the superior taste that this fat imparts. Careful farming practices and close monitoring of the herd’s genetics have produced what we believe to be the juiciest and most flavorful pork in the market. This pork is richly colored, well marbled, and always juicy. The pork gets high Minolta scores, a measurement of the red color of the pork, and for having a pH that is more neutral, which insures moisture retention during cooking.

The hogs are raised indoors in an environment that respects their natural instincts, with room to move and congregate. Since they cannot sweat, the hogs are raised in climate-controlled barns with misters and fans. Living indoors allows the pigs to live in a cleaner and more controlled environment that is as disease-free as possible. It also ensures consistency in the flavor of the pork, as the diet can be regulated. Hogs take on flavors of the things in their diet, so all the hogs are hand-fed the same diet, one free of hormones, steroids, and animal by-products. These heritage breed piglets are raised from birth, ensuring full traceability. There are now two nucleus herds with the same genetics, one in North Carolina and one in Indiana.
