There are so many benefits to raising and butchering your own animals. One of the best parts of raising pigs is the lard. Lard is a wonderful healthy fat source. It can be used for frying or baking. If you’ve never had biscuits made with lard, you haven’t really lived. Ok, maybe you’ve lived but they are so far beyond regular biscuits that I can’t really describe it. Lard also makes the best pie crust. Mmmmmmm, I’m getting hungry just thinking about all of the goodness that come from lard.
