Berkshire Back Fat : Render your own lard

$9.37

Ground Back Fat

Looking for fresh pork lard for cooking with, or supporting your keto or carnivore diet? Our pork back fat comes from the fat on the back of the pig. Our animals are fed a GMO-Free diet. Lard from pigs grown outdoors is high in Vitamin A, D, E and K.

How to render farm-fresh lard at home

Our back fat is pre-ground for ease of rendering.

  1. Defrost fat.
  2. Pop it in a heavy-bottom pot over low heat or in a large slow cooker. (DO NOT add water. It is not necessary and will compromise your finished product. We are trying to get the water OUT.)
  3. Keeping a close eye on it to ensure fat bits do not stick and burn on the bottom, stir occasionally.
  4. Your lard is done once most of the fat bits are golden in colour and have settled to the bottom. The fat should have more or less stopped bubbling as well.
  5. Allow to cool slightly and carefully strain into a heat-proof container. (Mason jars work well.)

About Our Heritage Breed Pork

At Coghlan Cottage Farm we specialize in raising rare-breed Berkshire and Gloucester Old Spot pigs.

These old breeds produce pork that is much more flavourful than the commercial breeds you'll find almost everywhere else.

Berkshire pork sports spectacular marbling and rich, dark meat.

please note

Perishables are Pickup Only

We do not ship meat, eggs or produce. Thanks!

Rare Breed Pork

Our heritage breed pigs are raised outside with lots of love.

We NEVER use confining gestation crates; Mamas enjoy co-parenting with their siblings and piglets are allowed to wean naturally.

Raised on GMO-Free feed and fresh veggies.
