All of our pigs are well handled, friendly and enjoy human contact. They are allowed to exhibit normal pig behaviour e.g. rooting in the dirt. When they are used to being handled they do not stress easily. This is especially important right before slaughter as excessive stress can seriously affect meat quality.
All traditional farmhouse bacon products are hand rubbed with curing salts and left to mature for several days. The bacon has a full flavour, and is mouth-wateringly delicious. It is lean and meaty, and because no water goes into it when making it, none will come oozing out when you cook it! It has a long shelf life and is ideal to freeze. All bacon is made without adding any sugar.
Our typical line-up at Symons Valley Ranch includes drycured smoked sliced side bacon, drycured sliced back bacon (unsmoked), drycured back bacon chops, drycured jalepeno sliced back bacon, ground pork, boneless loin, side ribs, back ribs, boneless shoulder roast, boiling ham, smoked cooked sliced ham, smoked cooked ham nuggets as well as a selection of delectable sausages.
