Family farmers in Pennsylvania and Maryland raise Fossil Farms’ Duroc Pork. These pigs are part of the “Never Ever Program,” where antibiotics, steroids and hormones are never used. Duroc Pork skin on belly is slightly leaner than Berkshire Pork, however, it produces a consistently tender and flavorful product year-round.
Duroc Pork is a breed that was developed between 1822 and 1877 from the Old Duroc pig of New York and the Red Jersey pig of New Jersey. The Duroc proved particularly suitable for feeding in the United States’ Corn Belt, and by the 1930s, Duroc became the predominant pork breed in the United States.
