Inn At Ship Bay's Mangalitsa Products

Geddes from Inn at Ship Bay, the only farm-to-table restaurant I know of in Washington using Mangalitsa, sent me this photo.

I'm guessing the raw material came from the pigs pictured here.

John Besh Writes About Mangalitsa Pigs

John Besh writes about his use of our Mangalitsa in his various restaurants.

John is one of the few chefs in the USA who breeds and fattens Mangalitsa pigs for his restaurant. That's commitment.

I've written before on this blog about Erick and Alon, just two of the Mangalitsa fanatics on Team Besh.

Michigan and Feral Pigs

As explained here, the state of Michigan is out to eliminate feral pigs.

Unfortunately, Mangalitsa pigs (and hybrids) have traits that make them look feral. E.g. long snouts & striped young.

Mark Baker, a farmer with some Mangalitsa purebreds (and crosses) is soliciting funds for his legal case against the state.

I think it will be terrible if, come April 1, Michigan authorities wipe out all the Mangalitsa pigs. It is hard to believe it could happen, but I'm not seeing anything to convince me they won't do it.
