Big Fork Brands is a Chicago-based, family-owned company centered on innovation. They work with small family farmers in Iowa who raise heritage hogs outdoors without the use of antibiotics. These hogs live a good life with continuous access to the outdoors. They are considered the 3%, since 97% of the hogs raised in Iowa come from confined feedlots.
Why not feedlots??? For these three distinct reasons:
- Community - confined feedlots stink!
- Environment - confined feedlots often contaminate the local watershed
- Humanitarian – our hogs have 24hrs outside access, humanly. They like to say happy hogs make great tasting sausage, jerky, and meat sticks.
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. With his background as a chef and the passion of an entrepreneur, Lance set out to become the new sausage king of Chicago. Seeing the decline of quality sausage back in 2010 Lance came up with the idea of combining two great meats, bacon & sausage together to create a singular super meat called Bacon Sausage. Since then, Lance has continued to expand the Big Fork Food line by launching a new flexitarian pork sausage and a Chicago-centric sauce, The Original Chicago Sauce. Big Fork has been featured on QVC, Inc., Esquire, Food & Wine, The Chicago Tribune, WGN, WGN Radio, CBS, and Fox.
