Meat of the North: Pork

Discover the Meat of the North – pork! Follow the journey of three Minnesotans as they learn about where pork comes from on the farm, the best cuts at an iconic butcher shop and how to cook with it – all across Minnesota. Presented by the Minnesota Pork Board during National Pork Month (October), see for yourself how pork is truly the Meat of the North.

Did you know pork is as Minnesotan as the lakes, trees, and people that call this state home? Or did you know there are more than 3000 pig-farming families that live and work in the North Star State who raise one of the safest, most delicious meats the whole world can enjoy?

Minnesota is a great place to enjoy the outdoors, make a living, and raise a family. Abundant resources and opportunities are available for those who aren’t afraid to work hard and have a little fun along the way. But these great opportunities come with great responsibility for Minnesota’s pig farmers to continue caring for their pigs, their communities, and our shared natural resources.
