Happy Belly Ranch
Welcome to our online boutique butcher shop! Here at Happy Belly Ranch we are very passionate about good quality clean meats combined with great flavors, textures and quality non GMO ingredients. We are hard core foodies and we believe in making our food products by hand with love, passion and dedication. We don’t believe in high volume food processing, but rather in making small fresh batches of meat products with good consistency, texture, and flavors. We will not offer a product that we don’t believe in and which we will not put on our own table for personal consumption and culinary pleasure.
Our wild boar meat
We trap our wild boar on the ranch and surrounding areas plus we have our free range hogs on the ranch as well, so rest assured the animals are 100% ecofriendly and free roaming. We treat the animals in the most humane possible way. All of our meat processing is done under USDA inspection and we do have always an USDA inspector on site. Once the wild boar carcasses are processed then we age our meat for at least 5 days in order to make sure that the natural flavors are enhanced through the process of water evaporation and the meat enzymes are braking down the tissue further in order to deliver more tender meat. That is correct, we are selling you real meat with reduced water content! We treat the meat and the process like we would do it for our own consumptions with love and up to high standards, this is why we back up our quality products 100% and this is why it takes longer time to prepare a high quality product. All the remaining ingredients which we use in the final product are non GMO / Organic and we strive to get best possible natural ingredients in order to complement our 100% natural meat quality. Once the product is finished it is carefully hand packed and vacuum sealed for fast freezing with commercial grade kitchen equipment in order to safeguard the finest quality of our products so that they are ready to be shipped to you with the best possible food characteristics as possible. We are not your traditional facility food processing plant or bulk grocery store, but rather a boutique butcher shop where we do few animals per week and our product is fresh to order. Once we have the orders we process fresh, age, freeze and prepare products to ship. We can guarantee you fresh product, prepared in small batches, all done manually where our main product is real meat hormone and antibiotics free, no artificial additives, food colors or grain fillers, and not mixed with domestic pork to maximize profits.
We want quality not quantity!
