Maine Pasture-Raised Ground Pork

Ground pork is great for stir fries, sauces, chilies, casseroles and any quick weeknight meal. It’s also a GREAT burger or burger mix with beef.
Serendipity Farm's pork is full of old-fashioned flavor, with delicious fat and savory meat. You can use the pork with most recipes but keep in mind that this pork isn't as lean as the variety you'll find in the grocery store and it has a lot more flavor. No antibiotics or growth hormone.

For over 40 years, Serendipity Farm and the Lorette family name have stood for integrity and quality In Maine farming circles.
That legacy continues today with George Lorette at his farm in Bradford. George grew up in Maine, but then left to get a degree in animal science and livestock production from Kansas State University. After Kansas State he worked at Murphy Hog Farms in North Carolina before returning to Maine to raise his own family and launch his own hog farm.
Serendipity today produces the highest quality all natural, pasture-raised pork.
Can I substitute ground pork for ground beef - for instance, in a meatball recipe?
In meatballs, pork and beef will behave pretty much the same, the flavor will just be of pork or of beef. The only real difference that you're likely to see (other than flavor) is if you are substituting ground pork for beef of a lower fat content.
How long is ground pork good for in the refrigerator?
Ground pork - once thawed - should be used within 2-3 days.
At what temperature should I cook ground pork to?
To check doneness properly, use a digital cooking thermometer. Fresh cut muscle meats such as pork chops, pork roasts, pork loin, and tenderloin should measure 145° F, ensuring the maximum amount of flavor. Ground pork should always be cooked to 160° F.
I love pork. I love bacon.
Well, I should qualify that. I love good pork and good bacon but I hate grocery store pork and bacon.
I've got two problems with grocery store pork.
First, it is bland, flavorless and rubbery.
Second, the pigs come from factory farms where the conditions are inhumane. (Maybe in the US and maybe from another country. Labels are deceiving.)
I've been on a quest for great pork from a farmer I could trust for months now. And this spring I finally found him. I am over-the-moon thrilled to be able to offer our customers pork that tastes great and was raised humanely from Serendipity Farms in Bradford, Maine.
