Replacing traditional ground pork with ground wild boar can greatly increase the flavor of almost any dish. Wild Boar meat tastes slightly sweet and nutty due to its diet of foraged nuts and other foods from the forest.
Food & Wine Magazine has called our wild boar “the ultimate sustainable meat” – read the full article. Unlike much of the Wild Boar on the market, ours isn’t farm-raised—it’s truly wild, trapped in the Texas Hill Country.
Although similar to domestic pork and farm-raised Wild Boar, our wild Wild Boar has a deeper color, leaner texture, tighter grain, and bolder taste.
Keep ground wild boar frozen until you're ready to use it, as many bags as you need.

Herbs and spices frequently used with wild boar include rosemary, thyme, and the always game meat friendly juniper berries.
