Quite possibly the rarest pork in the world. Undoubtedly in the US.
Meishan pork is the new name in Premium Pork. With it's own unique flavor and a tenderness you'll love, the Meishan is sure to win you over.
To quote J. Beranger's article in Grit Magazine, November/ December 2019 Issue, "All agreed the fat was delicious and the meat was flavorful, with an almost nutty taste."
As realized by The Livestock Conservancy, the Meishan pig breed is critically endangered. There are fewer than 2,000 left in the world. Prized by emperors and kings in China for 5,000 years, only the Chinese government may own Meishan boars in their country.
Thanks to the formation of the American Meishan Breeders Association in 2016, Jensen Reserve is able to offer you certified American Meishan Pork Prosciutto.
