How Do Subscriptions Work?

The word “lard” may strike fear into the hearts of health-conscientious eaters, but not all lard is created equal. High quality lard is a perfectly natural and healthful monounsaturated form of fat (crazy!). Full of fat soluble vitamin D, this lard is from heritage breed pigs raised outdoors in plenty of sunshine. That hydrogenated lard you see in the supermarket? Not the same thing. Include this culinary gem in your next baking adventures to treat yourself to extra flaky dough or the richest roasted veggies.

  • Made from pasture-raised, heritage breed pigs
  • Non-GMO, antibiotic-free and hormone-free

The Problem

One indicator of the shady nature of the pork industry is the difficulty for consumers to find out just exactly how their sausage was made. In large part, this is a result of “Ag Gag” laws: laws that prevent film or photography inside factory farms without the owner’s consent. This lack of accountability among conventional farmers has huge negative impacts on marketplace transparency, environmental protection, food safety, and animal welfare.

Our Food Fix

You can take a stand for transparency in your food system with every bite of Local Roots pork. When we visit our pig farmer in the Poconos, our team spends most of the day wandering the woodlands, trying to find the pigs as they forage and roam freely. Farmer Nolan (and his mom) raise heritage breeds that have keen survival instincts, making them more adaptable to outdoor living — there’s nothing to hide here.

What Locals Are Saying...


"Local Roots meat is handled with care and you can taste it. From the maple sausage to the pork chops and belly, there are no preservatives, nitrates or funky chemicals. It's super fresh. The meat share is the perfect portion size for me and it doesn't feel like too much."
