A little bit about our name

Entry Thumbnail

One of the rarest heritage breeds of hogs, the Black Hog is listed by the American Livestock Breeds Conservatory as endangered with fewer than 300 breeding hogs registered today.

Compared to other breeds, the flavors of the Black Hog’s meat is exceptional. The lean micro-marbled meat is extra tender due to the breed's short muscle fibers. This produces a tender, moist cut of pork with an exquisite and unique taste.

We thought it was only fitting to choose this name to represent the fine quality of food and service that we offer at the restaurant.
