Super Pork from Coach Stop Farms Zeeland, Michigan

Were just back from a six week road trip from California to the Great Lakes.

We found a place called Coach Stop Farms in Zeeland, Michigan, that sells home-grown pork.

Conni, the co-owner, welcomed us, and immediately said we’d have to take some kale and tomatoes as well as whatever we bought, because her garden is going crazy.

We spent the next hour plus talking to her and husband Darrel, meeting the brood sows and boar, chatting with the young pigs, cavorting with their 10 Percherons, and getting a full tour of the place. It was all a real treat.

All the pork we bought came from relatives of those free-range, naturally-raised pigs we just met; the pigs and chicken are free of additives and antibiotics.

We bought two packages of boneless pork chops, a pound of ground sausage, and a pound of kielbasa for about $26. We BBQed the pork and it was luscious: it was moist and tender, and actually tasted like pork.

I don't know if they mail order, but it's work a call.
