Bacon. Mmmm did somebody say bacon? (drool) This bacon is extra delicious and has no added nitrite so it’s better for you than regular bacon. It comes from Market newcomer Wagga Free Range Pork – Berkshire Pigs who, as the name suggests, pride themselves on a range of free range pork products. Steve and Leah Anderson, with their three children, run pure bred Berkshire pigs on their farm in Wagga which they say has more flavour than that available from commercially bred ‘white’ pork. Their Berkshires grow slower and are kept lean so as to not get too fatty, consuming a diet high in fresh fruit and vegetables along with specially formulated pig pellet grain and fresh water. The family do all their own smoking and curing to create a range of traditional pork smallgoods including smoked chorizo, smoked kabana, no nitrite bacon and ham, ham hocks, sliced leg ham and a range of unique handcrafted fresh sausages.
