Ever wonder what the difference is?​

We at Vande Rose Farms are always clear and never use confusing unregulated phrases like All Natural.



Our animals are NEVER EVER fed animal by-products.


This is purely a matter of safety, preservation, and preference.  Unless you are getting your meat from your own back yard chances are it has undergone some method of safety and preservation.

Cured meats will result in a longer shelf life with the use of nitrites, nitrates, and in some cases phosphates.

Uncured is a method of preservation with the use of natural ingredients.  With the use of natural salts and flavorings, like celery powder to help keep your bacon fresh.

Very similar in flavor and appearance. It all depends on your preference.


Did you know that only 3% of pork is made in the USA?

We would know we make most of it.
