Pure Mangalitsa

Pure Mangalitsa is a local company that specializes in raising the Mangalitsa variety of pig. The Mangalitsa is an Austrian variety of pig and is covered with thick, curly hair. What is more interesting from a culinary perspective is that they also feature a substantially thicker layer of fat and a richer flavor than the more commonly found types of pig. This fine specimen below and to the left is named Pedro, the alpha male of the farm.
