Steven Busch Ranch (Oakland, OR, near Roseburg) produces Pork Sausage Links in conjunction with Taylor Sausage (Cave Junction, OR). This one-pound, 16-count package of breakfast links contains no MSG, nitrates, or nitrites.
The Steven Busch Ranch raises a heritage breed known as “American Guinea Hog”, from which this bacon is produced. The American Guinea is a small, black breed of swine that is unique to the United States. Also known as the Pineywoods Guinea, Guinea Forest Hog, Acorn Eater, and Yard Pig, the breed was once the most numerous pig breed found on homesteads in the Southeast.
According to the American Guinea Hog Association, this breed produces superior pork:
- Unparalleled Flavor, Texture, and Quality
- The Fat is a Creamy, Melt-in-Your-Mouth Delight
- Mature Hogs (15+ months of age) Provide a Nice, Well-Marbled Carcass
- The Muscle-to-Fat Ratio Is Ideal for Charcuterie
