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.
German Black Forest Bacon
This is one of smokiest bacons we make. After 10 days of curing, it is cold smoked on and off over more than a week for about 50 hours and then hot smoked several hours to finish. It hangs and ages for several days, before finally being sliced. Additionally, this bacon is distinct for the woods used in the smoking. No fruitwoods. Traditionally, this bacon uses woods that are quite uncommon in American smoking: maple and juniper.
Though it can be cooked. It is best enjoyed at room temperature like ham (albeit fatty ham) as an appetizer or part of a cheese/meat board. It is great paired with Muenster cheese and good mustard and pickles. Dry white wine or German pilsners are also excellent on the side.
A big batch of shirts is being printed early next week, so you should have no problem finding your size.
