Delicious thick cut slices of back bacon, traditionally dry cured for maximum flavour. Ccomes from the loin.
At Castlescreen we hand cure all our own bacon before drying and slicing as thick cut rind-on rashers. The result is bacon with a flavour and texture unlike anything else. You wont find any water or white residue in the pan when you cook our bacon, and the rasher will keep its shape rather than shrivelling away to nothing.
Castlescreen Farm is in conversion to FULLY CERTIFIED ORGANIC. Our pigs are raised outside in Spring/Summer free to forage and fulfil their natural instincts, on land FREE FROM any artificial fertilisers or pesticides.. We raise Duroc pigs which do not have the high fat covering of rare breed pigs, so for their own comfort in very cold weather they are kept indoors in very large sheds. The Duroc breed of pig is famous worldwide as the breed of choice for Parma and Serrano ham, due to the marbling and natural sweetness of the meat. Their free range diet produces flavourful fats that are healthier and meat that is naturally high in valuable nutrients.
