100% free range lard is the most flavourful cooking fat rendered from the fat of 100% pasture raised chestnut fed pigs on the organic Chestnut Brae farm. Chestnut Brae Premium Lard has a high smoking point, makes it amazing for stove-top cooking, adding a beautiful crispness to roast veggies and potatoes and can be used for browning meat, sauteing veg and baking both sweet and savoury pastries.

Lard is rich in oleic acid, the same fatty acid that is in olive oil and praised for its health benefits. It also contains 20% less saturated fat than butter; it's also higher in monounsaturated fats, which are good for cardiovascular health.
