North Country Smokehouse Launches Organic Canadian Bacon

CLAREMONT, N.H.– North Country Smokehouse, a family-owned, artisanal smoked meat producer with a strong history of culinary excellence, has expanded their award-winning product line to include Organic Applewood Smoked Uncured Canadian Bacon.

With the success of their original Canadian bacon, North Country continues to expand its line of organic, certified humane products with this new organic variety. Carefully selected and cut from the leanest section of the pork loin, this product is hand-trimmed by North Country’s butchers. The lean ham-like medallion is then marinated in a brine made from pure maple syrup and premium spices, then double smoked for a hearty, bold flavor unlike anything else on the market.

This Certified Organic Canadian bacon is free of nitrates, nitrites, antibiotics and growth hormones. It is also Certified Humane, ensuring strict animal welfare standards, including providing livestock with shelter, access to resting areas, room to roam and engage in natural behaviors.

“We’re excited to bring one of the only Certified Organic Canadian bacons to the market. Through our traditional low and slow smoke method, this product retains a full-bodied flavor unrivaled by other Canadian bacons,” said Aaron Corbett, COO, North Country Smokehouse. “We’re also proud to be a leader in the industry with our commitment to animal welfare standards by continuing to provide USDA Organic and Certified Humane options for consumers across our product lines.”

All of North Country Smokehouse’s products are handmade and slow-smoked in small batches, and never include artificial flavors, fillers or dyes. Their meats are sourced from duBreton, a third-generation family farm business, who leads North America and Canada in the supply of certified humane and organic pork.

The new Canadian bacon is immediately available for sale at Whole Foods Market in New England for $6.99. To learn more and shop online, please visit www.ncsmokehouse.com.
