Here at The Baconer, we got our start in the San Francisco Bay Area farmers markets back in 2016. Situated in the epicenter of farm to table cuisine, our goal is to create new ways to enjoy and cook with America's favorite food (ahem, bacon!) for a new generation of home cooks, chefs and photo-snapping foodies. We do this through responsible sourcing, chef-driven flavors and innovative cuts. We are revitalizing a stale category with something genuinely new. Our mission is to inspire our customers to cook amazing and delicious meals because everybody loves discovering that special ingredient you can't wait to get home and cook, especially when it's made of bacon!
The Best Bacon from
responsibly Sourced Pork
We want you to know where your bacon comes from. We start by sourcing 100% premium pork, sustainably raised on farms located in Iowa that meet the industry’s highest standards. All of our partner farms must follow these critical guidelines to ensure we can deliver the best bacon experience for our customers.
100% Heritage Breed Duroc Pork: The hogs are born, raised, and responsibly harvested in the USA.
Humane Treatment and Techniques: Humane treatment of the animals and sustainable farming methods are core to responsible sourcing, and is the most important criteria we look for.
Crate Free: The farms we work with do not use farrowing or gestation crates.
Vegetarian Diet: The hogs are fed an all-natural, vegetarian-based diet.
Antibiotic & Hormone Free: The hogs are raised without added hormones, growth accelerants, ractopamine, steroids, gluten, or antibiotics.
We source our pork through Premium Iowa Pork, a family-owned producer of all-natural, fresh pork and smoked pork products. For 100 years, they’ve been partnering with a community of family farmers who raise their pigs humanely on small family farms located in Iowa and Minnesota. Our relationship with Premium Iowa Pork and their extended family of local farmers ensures we can deliver the best bacon experience for our customers.
