The feedback on all this has been fantastic- a friend long out of touch emailed me with the information that there are folks in Italy bringing back a local breed of hog called nero di Caserta. Apparently, they are "offered a feed that is 50% chestnuts and 50% acorns. The hogs are very, very large when slaughtered (800-1000 lbs), and the fat is even more redolent of chestnut than the meat." Wow! Now we just need to import some of those hogs! We do have some chestnut fed pork to sell, and hope to have a little on a regular basis; those interested can check my website,, for info. We're still trying to figure out how to price it!!
