Mangalitsa are probably the craziest pigs you'll ever see! Covered in wooly fluffy hair has them looking like a mix mash sheep pig cross. Originally a lard pig bred for their high level of fatty deposits in Hungary they quickly fell out of favor as folks began wanting a leaner meat. With only a few mangalitsa known in existence a huge undertaking began to bring this heritage breed back to sustainable numbers. It was an immense undertaking to get them finally cleared for import into the United States. They are gaining ground in popularity and adding wonderful flavor back into America's pork. The richness of buttery fat adds flavor and succulent marbeling to pork when mangalitsa is added to the genetics. The meat becomes a melt in your mouth, tender and juicy sensation. No dried out chops here folks when there's Manga in the mix!
