All other breeds of swine are derived from this prehistoric pig. Referred to as "Wild Boar" it is in fact a cage-free, straw-bedded & pastured - ranch raised animal, not "pigs gone wild" as hunted in the South.
The Wild Boar is an extremely hardy animal that is capable of growth even during the hardest winter. Unlike the domestic pig, Wild Boar are not prone to illness or disease.
Wild Boar meat is not gamey tasting; the meat is darker in color with a distinct, more flavorful taste than domestic pork. Nutritionally speaking, Wild Boar is leaner, higher in protein with less fat and calories than it’s domestic counterpart.
