Pork picnic shoulder is a great choice for barbecue and pulled pork. It is best with low, moist heat, so it is an easy slow-cooker meal. Just cover it and cook on low all day until you can’t resist the delicious smell any longer.
The pork picnic shoulder can usually be substituted in recipes that call for the pork butt shoulder roast.
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.

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.
