As the name states, pork belly comes from the belly of the pig.
It is best to cook pork belly using a slow cooking method like roasting. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Using a sharp knife, score the pork belly skin with a crosshatch pattern.
Brush with oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake, skin side up, for 30 minutes. Reduce the oven to 325°F.
Remove the pork belly and brush with a honey, sage, and apple juice glaze. Finish cooking in the oven, continuously basting with the honey glaze if you'd like.

We don’t buy in pigs as we breed them ourselves on the farm so we have several generations of chemical free, GMO-free pig stock and we keep getting cleaner each generation.
We’ve created our own Burke’s Garden Farm breed from a variety of standard breeds that have adapted to our pastures and feeding routines.
They are hardy, fat and happy!
These pigs are pasture raised at Burkes Garden Farm and eat 90% of their diet of bugs, grass, roots, grubs, and earthworms. They roam 500 acres with access to clean highland air, water and sunshine.
Living on alfalfa, blue grass, orchard grass, clover, burdock, herbs, wildflowers, turnips, grubs, bugs, and earthworms, with free-access to clean spring water and high-altitude air and climate, they produce the most nutritious pork.
In addition to what they root for, they are supplemented a GMO-free, chemical-free feed that contains corn, soybeans, small grains (oats), and minerals.
Lastly, our pig butcher does not process using nitrates, nitrites, preservatives, MSG, or chlorine bleach cleaners, rather washes in certified-for-organic non-GMO citric and lactic acid.
Our sausages are wrapped in both natural pork collagen or pork intestine casings.
So, if you are looking for a healthy option for your family, for the pigs, and for the planet, you are in the right place.
