From small farms to careful curing, this sopressata is a true artisan product. The pork used comes exclusively from small farms in central Pennsylvania that are dedicated to providing TLC, a healthy diet, and personal oversight throughout the pork production process. Compared to mass-produced product, these pigs are raised in a dignified, clean, and comfortable environment. No antibiotics or hormones are ever administered to the pigs and no nitrates are added, aside from those naturally occurring in sea salt and celery. This sopressata is available in two varieties; sweet with the traditional studding of black peppercorns, or hot with a healthy dose of red pepper flakes and paprika. Varieties sold separately.
