Pork lard is the rendered hard fat from the hog. It's a versatile high-smoke point cooking fat that can be used for both sweet and savory dishes.
Though fat can get a bad reputation, lard is full of vitamin d and is a clean source of necessary dietary fats, especially when it comes from pasture-raised pork.
We recommend using lard to fry pork chops, bake biscuits, or make the flakiest pie crusts!
Shaded Grove Farm Market lard comes in one pint packages which is enough lard for four pie crusts, or several months worth of cooking. The lard will keep for several months in the fridge or indefinitely in the freezer without spoiling.
