Cut from the cross-section of the leg, our forested pork shanks are packed with flavor and nutrients. A very lean cut, slow cooking is a must for tender, fall-off-the-bone success. Dredge, sear, and braise on the stove or in the oven for 3 hours ; nestle in the slow cooker with root vegetables, beer or wine; or speed up the process with a pressure cooker. Great with beans, braised collards and root vegetables. You can also substitute our pork shanks for veal and make succulent Osso Buco.

Farming Practices

Every Grass Roots animal is born, raised and harvested in the USA. They graze on natural, non-GMO pasture and are never treated with hormones or antibiotics. Our pigs root and wallow in the forested areas of our farms and because they are not ruminants, are supplemented with non-GMO, custom-mix feed ration containing probiotics and nutrients.

We practice regenerative farming that fosters a diversity of plants, uses no-till methods, and incorporates grazing animals to restore the soil and respect the animals. Our farms and processing facilities maintain the highest standards and provide economic opportunities in rural communities.
