Ready-to-eat deli meat for your sandwiches! This sliced bologna is made with our pasture-raised, non-GMO-fed pork. It's a little thicker than the bologna you may be used to, because it's hand-made. It has a red casing around it that you may just peel off before you eat it. (It's technically an edible casing, but I recommend just removing it for a more pleasant eating experience, and it comes off easily.) This bologna is fully cooked and already sliced, so it's ready to go. It's cured like our hot dogs (same recipe, but not smoked and in a much larger size casing). Our kids love this, our biggest sausage yet.
This is in a clear vacuum-sealed pack of about 1 pound, typically with 7-8 slices. All meat products are frozen.
Our non-GMO-fed hogs live the good life, roaming free and happy outdoors on pasture and woods. They get moved to fresh grass or woods frequently, and getting to use their muscles results in a deeper pork flavor. They have a low-stress life and are processed under USDA inspection right on the farm.
Marble Creek Farmstead is a sustainable family farm specializing in pasture-raised meats and eggs. We use rotational grazing because it heals the land, creates more nutritious meat, and is better for the animals. They get fresh grass to munch on, the movement breaks the parasite cycle (removing the need for chemical treatments), and letting the grass rest a while makes the plants and soil healthier. Raising so many different species creates a synergy that improves the soil health, which in turn creates healthier animals, which ends up making you and me healthier. Not only are pasture-raised meats better for the environment and have a much healthier nutritional profile than conventionally-raised meats, they are some of the most delicious meats out there!
