About the product: A special feature of the Zabukovec Ecological Farm is the breeding of Krškopoljec pigs, an autochthonous Slovenian pig breed. Their breeding is based on extensive, slow fattening. Krškopoljec, or locally known as Krškopolj'c, is known for its willingness to feed on fodder that is not so demanding for planting and processing. It is resistant, and its meat is more marbled (greasy), fuller in taste and very aromatic. Compared to the usual, white breed of pig, only 55 kg of meat is obtained from 120 kg of Krškopoljec pig. It also needs, compared to the white breed of pig, 2 times longer to grow - as much as 8 months. And even then, it doesn’t reach the weight that a white pig would. Krškopoljec pigs on Zabukovec Farm have their own barn with an outlet, where they can sunbathe.

Organic bacon from Krškopoljec pork is made completely without preservatives. Because the bacon is cut by hand, there are slight deviations in the weight of the pieces. A piece of bacon weighs about 260 g. Store it at a temperature of up to 8 degrees.
