BARONGAROOK PORK
Barongarook Pork is a family run farm producing delicious outdoor raised pork. They are proud to utilise heritage breed and cross breed pigs. This helps them produce the full-flavoured, tender pork (with a great crackle!) that they’re renowned for.

Barongarook Pork’s animals are free to roam in open paddocks with a constant supply of food and water, along with cosy shelter to protect them from the elements. Sometimes the pigs are a little too free range and it’s not uncommon to find a cheeky pig or two under the apple tree helping themselves to fallen goodies. Barongarook Pork genuinely cares for their pigs, but it’s also the best pork you will ever taste as well.

Happy pigs are tasty pigs!
