The pork butt shoulder roast is the cut beloved by barbeque competition champions and pitmasters. It works well in any slow cooked meal, whether your method is slow and smoky over coals or slow and saucy in a pot.
This cut goes by different names, sometimes called the butt, or the Boston butt, or sometimes just the shoulder. It includes the muscles around the shoulder blade area, so for comparison it is anatomically equivalent to the “chuck” in beef.
All our pork comes from our good friends at Cairncrest Farm. We’ve found that we have very compatible goals and farming practices, so we are happy to have them as a partner for pasture raised pork. Pigs are animals that thrive in an outdoor environment, where they can root in the ground and sprawl in the sun. And consequently you’ll find that this pork is unlike other pork. The meat has developed character because of the active and healthy lives these pigs live. All the pigs’ grains are non-GMO (grown right here in our town actually) and of course the pigs are free of antibiotics and hormones.
We offer delivery of our family farmed meats throughout the Northeast, shipped to your door in recyclable insulated containers. Our delivery area includes New York City, Long Island, New York state, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine.
