This is a Mangalista Leaf Lard Our pure lard is rendered by hand in small batches. Leaf lard specifically comes from the soft, visceral fat from around the pig's kidneys and loin. As such, it has a very delicate, super spreadable consistency at room temperature. This, along with its clean, un-porky flavor, is why leaf lard is considered the highest grade of lard.

Vitamins A, C, D & K as well as a low ratio Omega 3:6 is all highly bio-available in this perfect package. Our Pastured Manalastas are given a natural environment to forage for nuts and nutrient-rich forage. We feed them an organic, non-GMO mix of grains and do not give them corn or soy.  We use a pasture rotation system with no antibiotics, no steroids, no chemical de-wormers. The reason we have some non-organic cuts of meat can be attributed to a few reasons. Sometimes, the processor does not have the proper seasoning for ground sausage that is certified organic. When we started with our Mangalista pigs, we bought two pregnant sows, and one was only on the farm two weeks before she had her litter. All organic animals must be born on the farm, and the mother is raised organically for the last 1/3 of her pregnancy. So, the first group of pigs we took to market, 5 were organic, and six were not.
