Lance Avery, Big Fork Brands
Big Fork Brands is a Chicago-based, family-owned company centered on innovation through flexitarian sausage, bacon sausage, craft pork jerky, pork snack sticks, and The Original Chicago Sauce. They work with small family farmers in Iowa who raise heritage hogs outdoors without the use of antibiotics. These hogs live the good life with continuous access to the outdoors. Clean label, great tasting products, with a unique twist, that's Big Fork.
Born and raised in Iowa, Lance learned at an early age the importance the pork industry has on his native state. After several business attempts, Lance focused his efforts by combining his upbringing as an Iowan and his culinary expertise in Chicago to launch Big Fork.
