Omaha Bacon Club Member Page
Welcome to the Omaha Bacon Club.
Thank you for supporting a small local business and the local farmers we work with.
The club is pretty simple:
- The end of each month, come and pick-up your bacon at our retail shop in Ft. Calhoun, in Omaha at our house or the Gifford Park Farmer's Market, or in Lincoln.
- Check this page for exact dates and times and locations of pick-ups each month.
- Add-Ons are available, but the best and fullest selection is at the shop in Ft. Calhoun and at the Gifford Park Farmer's Market.
- If you can't make a month, just come by our retail shop or double up the next month. You won't ever miss out on the bacon you have paid for.
Toronto-Style Peameal Bacon
Terrible name, but great bacon. Peameal bacon (photo above) is a Toronto twist on back bacon, aka Canadian bacon. It is made from lean pork loin which benefits from brining rather than our normal dry-curing. After a week of maple brining, the loins were cold-smoked over mulberry and oak wood. Then the trick, the whole loins were rolled in corn meal (tradition used to be peameal) and briefly roasted in oven. The classic Toronto preparation is to fry thick slices and serve on a bun as a smoky sandwich. Read more and get serving ideas.
T-shirts will be available for new members and anyone who is still shirtless. If your size isn't available, I will order and have it for the February Pick-Up.
