I may have just bought $200 of bacon…

Berkshire Pigs raised by Pasture Perfect Pork - Image from them.

You might remember reading my cranky rantings earlier in the year where I was frustrated by the lack of organic bacon.

I had discovered that Pasture Perfect Pork make this amazing chemical-nitrite-free bacon, and yet it wasn’t currently available.

Well it’s back! And I may or may not have just ordered $200 of it! They are having a limited offer where orders of $200 or more are delivered free within metro Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Bacon stores really well in the freezer, so buying in bulk is a great idea.

If you’re on facebook, you can see their page here, and they have a shop on the page where you can order their Christmas hams and bacon. Being pregnant, I’m giving the ham a miss this year, but next year, try and stop me!

    Nothing more frustrating than being pregnant at christmas time when all anyone wants to serve you is ham!

    You might have to on-sell some of that organic bacon to friends who visit… 😉

      Maggie, that sounds fabulous – your own pigs!
      Unfortunately I’m only 13 weeks, so ham is a long way off in my future.

    $200 on bacon! thats funny. It sounds delicious though, I’m sure you will find plenty of things to make with it.

      I may need to hide it deep within the freezer or my husband will be requesting bacon and eggs every weekend until it’s gone 🙂

      My sister bought one for her BBQ. We’re having Christmas lunch, rotisserie style 🙂

    Was I not supposed to eat ham when I was pregnant? Woops……. I guess it is a deli meat….. oh well…… That is such a great idea to buy some nice ethical bacon. I wish I had some freezer space to put it in….

      I must admit I’m pretty naughty on the food restriction front too. But spending so much money on something that I’m not *supposed* to eat seemed kinda silly. I’ll cook my bacon and enjoy it – immensely.

    That is too funny, I can’t imagine buying that much bacon. I also can’t believe that bacon is now on the list of foods you can’t eat while pregnant. When I was pregnant there wasn’t a list, just no alcohol and smoking.

      Bacon is actually OK, because you cook it. The problem is ham, which is cured but eaten cold. Along with salami etc, it’s on the ‘risky’ list 😦

        I thought salami was on the hit list because it’s not cooked. Ham was never on the list 11 years ago… but then that was the UK and may well be different. Enjoy what you can have in the meantime 🙂

        I’ve been ignoring the advice actually, but don’t tell my obstetrician 🙂
