hickory chips are all we needed for these locally sourced pork chops.

What is so special about these chops? Well, these beautiful specimens are from our Pork CSA share from Millstone Farm in Wilton, CT. On Friday, we gleefully drove out to the farm and picked up our 20 pounds of pork which included chops, shoulder, sausage and spare ribs.
The meat for this first-ever Millstone Pork CSA comes from a cross of two heritage breeds. The pigs were born and raised on the farm and head farmer Annie Farrell let us see where the pigs lived. We also were introduced to a big ‘ol beautiful boar.

The meat was butchered and packed by Saugatuck Craft Butchery in Westport. Farrell said the decision to use them just made sense because of their dedication to sustainably and humanely raised meat and nose-to-tail philosophy.
We have some big plans for the rest of the various pork cuts now filling our freezer. Oh, and this Friday, we get to pick up our bacon. With meat this good, it’s going to be epic. We can’t wait!
