From the chefs and winemakers at Napa Valley's Long Meadow Ranch — Three 12 oz packs


LMR's Farmstead Dry Cured Heritage Bacon
Three 12 oz packs

Farmstead bacon is a “California” bacon, mild mannered and mellow. Easy to eat on sandwiches or with eggs, perfect for any time of day. It is lighter in flavor with just a bit of smoke, delicate and creamy, but with its own perky profile. We love it on avocado toast, and it pairs incredibly with a light California red, like the Pinot Noir from Farmstead! As with all our bacon, it is made from the healthiest, pasture-raised heritage breed pigs, with no antibiotics.

Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch brings food directly to their spectacular but very accessible restaurant, a true model of sustainability. They make their own wine, specifically to pair with food from their ranch and orchard. They create their own olive oil and raise their own Highland cattle, which they use in their cooking. At Farmstead, every link of the food chain is literally just steps away, and now they’ve added a bacon to their mix!

Farmstead bacon is cured in a dry brine, with a little brown sugar, a little cayenne pepper, a little molasses and black pepper – “just enough salt and sweet to be balanced” — and of course it is made using the best quality pork bellies from Heritage Foods.

Farmstead Executive Chef and Director of Culinary Operations Stephen Barber, the award-winning artisan who has merged America’s great southern traditions with a fresh California outlook, has long been a hero to Team Heritage, and his new bacon cements it. “Farmstead means from our farm, we have our own eggs from our chickens and now we make our own bacon. We truly are making our own breakfast!”

The secret to great pork is to start off with great ingredients, and nothing beats our storied Heritage breeds —  Berkshire, Red Wattle, Duroc, Gloucestershire Old Spot, Large Black, and Tamworth. Each breed comes from a different culinary tradition, and boasts a distinctive, nuanced flavor.


  • Humanely raised on pasture 
  • 100% antibiotic free
  • Raised by independent family farmers
  • Heritage pork has more marbling resulting in more tender  and juicy meat


Pork Belly

The pork side, also called the bone-in belly, is the fattiest primal cut of the animal, especially with heritage breeds, and includes the spare rib (or St. Louis). Our bone-in belly chops combine both sub-primals. Uncured and often boneless, the belly is used for braising and smoking. In cured form, it becomes bacon and pancetta. Belly is also part of our classic porchetta roasts. Pork belly is best known for producing bacon which we feature in many ways, by breed and cured by different artisans.

Heritage Pork Breeds

We are proud to offer 5 heritage pork breeds always raised on pasture by family farms. Heritage breeds are the very foundation of our agricultural history and gastronomic identity.


For 200 years the Berkshire consistently scores higher than other breeds for color, marbling, and tenderness.

Red Wattle

Anchoring great gastronomic traditions of China, New Caledonia, and later Creole and Cajun cuisine in New Orleans.


One of the few all American pigs; the result of crossing two red colored breeds in 19th Century New York.

Old Spot

These floppy-eared spotted gentle giants, nicknamed the “Cottager’s Pig,” were known for eating a diet that included wind-fallen apples.


An ancient breed found wild for centuries in the forests of Ireland where they were known as “Irish Grazers” and later in the woods of England.

Support High Quality Pasture Raised Farming

We champion a return to balanced, healthy, heritage breeds on American farms for the long term food security of the planet and the welfare of the animals.
