About the Ossabox:
The Hog- The Ossabaw produces some of the most flavorful pork products in the world. The meat is a dark red and the fat is soft, creamy, and high in Omega-3’s. Many call the Ossabaw the walking olive tree. These animals take 18 months to raise correctly, at least twice as long as other pastured hogs. We then hang their hams for another 18 months, resulting in wonderful prosciutto (and some seriously SLOW food).
The History- The Ossabaw Island pig came to America when Spanish settlers dropped off their beloved Iberian Hog on the barrier islands of North America. The pigs turned wild and successfully adapted to their islands, in this case, Ossabaw Island, GA. Cane Creek was one of a handful of farms to begin domesticating this breed again, and we now have one of the largest herds anywhere.
Our prosciutto is made from the Ossabaw Island Hog. The ham is cured for 18 months, thinly sliced, and ready for your fancy dinner party or camping trip. Each package is resealable and in 1/2 pound packs and they are $35 each including shipping. We ship at the beginning and the middle of each month priority mail (takes 2-3 business days). Order as much as you like – it keeps for months in the refrigerator and it’s great for gifts. Serve at room temperature.
