This is the Ham for you if you want no added chemical Nitrate.
Backfatters Ham is produced from Heritage Breeds - here at Backfatters we breed two types of heritage pigs - the Large Blacks and the Berkshire. We've chosen these rare breeds due to the flavour and to keep the breeds thriving in Australia. Both are excellent breeders and dual purpose pigs. Our beautiful but naughty Heritage breed pigs are raised on chemical free pastures and are fed a diet that was especially designed for these breeds. Their healthy diet contains a locally grown corn that is GMO free, meat meal and fish meal free and free of antibiotics. This along with a stress free life roaming the paddocks sees us producing an old fashioned style pork that is full of flavour and tastes like pork used to taste.
All our ham and bacon is cured naturally with a celery extract and all our products are gluten free. We use traditional recipes and never put fillers in our sausages, just real good meat. In doing this we produce a product that not only tastes good it is good for you too.
Ingredients: Pork (96%), Maple, Salt, Vegetable Extracts, Antioxidants (316).
Gluten Free, keep refrigerated . Use within 7 days of opening.
