Beyond Organic Pork Lard

The finished product after rendering.
 

We offer both pastured beyond organic leaf lard and pastured beyond organic pork fat. Unrendered, unprocessed, and great for rendering your own homemade pastured beyond organic lard. Always 100% non-GMO and pasture raised!

Our Leaf lard from the inside of the pig, near the kidneys, and our "pork fat" (also known as back fat or fatback) is from outside of the pig, just under the skin. Unless you're making fine delicate pastries with it the "pork fat" will be what you want.

Both kinds are unprocessed, unrendered, pastured pork beyond organic lard. We've also written a great article for you on how to render lard once it arrives on your doorstep.

TOP SECRET STUFF: We'd like to let you in on a little secret. That $19 fee that we charge to ship orders under $199 doesn't actually cover the entire cost of shipping (labor, cooler, dry ice, FedEx fees, etc). The actual shipping cost for us is more like $30+ most of the time. This means that on really small orders, we actually lose money. Yeah, we know that sounds bad. But we also know that people who order a little will often come back and order a lot. The problem is that we started to notice lots and lots and lots of orders coming in with just one pack of pork fat or leaf lard. So many, in fact, that all of those $30 or $40 orders were having a measurable (and bad) impact on us. So, our solution to this challenge is two-fold:

1.) In the short run, we have made a minimum order quantity for our pork fat and leaf lard of 3 units. This allows us to keep our prices the same and avoid losing money.

2.) In the long run (maybe this summer), we will start offering already-rendered pastured pork lard and pastured pork leaf lard! By rendering it for you, we'll be able to offer a ready-to-use, creamy white, and relatively shelf-stable product that we will be able to ship without a cooler or dry ice. So, before long, you be able to get already rendered pastured pork lard from us without having to pay hardly any shipping at all! In the meantime, thanks for your patience and understanding. We love y'all!

Thank you for the link to slow cooker rendering of my leaf lard. So easy! I ended up with 6 pint jars from the 6 lbs of lard I purchased-along with delicious cracklings.
We usually shop locally. Have a half beef in freezer and do local chicken and free range eggs, but I appreciate being able to purchase individual cuts that we so enjoy, like flank steak or chicken thighs for the slow cooker recipes.Your shipping was very quick. Thank you.

In general, I highly recommend Tendergrass to anyone that is looking for high quality, pastured meats. Fast, great packaging and delicious products.

I rendered 3 packages of the back fat, and it made a creamy, white lard that we have very much enjoyed cooking with (baked fries in lard? eggs in lard? mmmm). The rendering process was very easy, and it was my first time rendering any kind of fat!

Now I'm just waiting for it to come back in stock to place my next order.

Expertly packaged and arrived the next day. I rendered 5 lbs and got nearly 3 quarts of creamy, odorless leaf lard for baking and frying. Beautiful! You've earned a loyal customer!
