Only Berkshire pigs raised at Broad Brook Acres. Berkshires are medium sized with adult boars weighing about 600 pounds and sows weighing about 500 pounds. Unlike traditional pigs, Berkshires are black with four white socks, a white splash on the snout, and a white tip to the tail
Berkshire pork, prized for juiciness, flavor, and tenderness, is pink-hued and heavily marbled. Its high fat content makes it suitable for long cooking and high-temperature cooking. The meat also has a slightly higher pH, making the meat darker, firmer, and more flavorful.
