Craft Pork Jerky
Craft Pork Meat Sticks

Big Fork supports small independent farmers in Iowa who raise heritage hogs outdoors. These hogs are not treated with antibiotics, so you know you are getting premium-quality, handcrafted, delicious pork snack sticks. We use the best tasting pork on the planet. We grind the lean pork, mix it with a few pure ingredients and smoke it to perfection for the snappy bite and tender center. Like all of our products, Big Fork always uses only simple and clean ingredients.

Bacon Sausage

Big Fork makes craft bacon sausage. We work with small family farmers in Iowa who raise 100% Berkshire Hogs outdoors without the use of antibiotics. We use the best tasting bacon on the planet, its nitrate-free, uncured, and hardwood smoked. We grind the bacon with antibiotic-free pork shoulder, a touch of brown sugar and sea salt. Then we naturally encase it and smoke it using a combination of hickory and applewood hardwoods. Our sausage is made the traditional smokehouse way, with one difference; we stuff as much bacon into every encased meat that we make. On the premise that bacon makes everything better, we’re making sausage better with BACON. Our Sausage Contains No: Antibiotics, Artificial Ingredients, Soy, Gluten (except our Bacon & Ale sausage), Dairy (except our Aged Cheddar sausage) Hormones, Preservatives, or Nitrates What Make Our Bacon Sausage Special: Naturally Smoked, Naturally Encased, Made with Berkshire Pork, Manufactured in Illinois, Hogs Raised in Iowa, Clean Label, Paleo & Keto Friendly, Stuffed with Uncured Bacon Our Seasoning Blends & Ingredients are 100% GMO Free For example, use corn flour in our sausage because we want to use dark brown sugar (that’s wet and sticky) and the corn flour dries out the sugar. You could use a highly processed ingredient such as Maltodextrin to dry out the brown sugar or use more highly processed ingredients like brownulated sugar, but we chose to use corn flour instead since it’s simply just ground up non-GMO corn that’s way less processed.
