Rich and bold in flavor, deep red in color, and boasting exceptionally consistent marbling throughout, our Sakura Duroc Boston Butt is a fan favorite. While its name is misleading, the Boston Butt actually comes from the shoulder of the hog. Situated higher on the body, the butt gets less work and renders it more tender than the lower “picnic roast.” Because of its more succulent qualities, the Boston Butt is often the preferred portion of the shoulder, yielding juicy results that are positively brimming with bold porky flavor!
Our Sakura Duroc Boston Butt is sourced from Heritage Berkshire, your number one purveyor of premium high-quality pork. Raised on small, family-owned farms throughout the Midwest, our Sakura hogs come from the heritage Duroc breed. Originally brought from Europe, the Duroc has risen to prominence among American farmers as well thanks to its superior marbling, rich flavor profile, and deep red coloring.
To be marketed as Sakura, these Duroc hogs are raised under strict regulations and guidelines. From birth, Sakura Duroc hogs are only given specialty vegetarian feed, consisting of a wholesome combination of soy and corn. Never administered any hormones, antibiotics, or additives, our Sakura Duroc hogs closely follow these farm management and raising techniques to achieve consistently superior quality meat. Raised in a sustainable, environmentally friendly manner, not only is our Sakura Duroc pork delicious, but it’s also the healthy choice for you and the planet.
