Cochon also use Unkel Farms. Kurt Unkel is a very down to earth guy that is on top of the organic, free range pork and produce scene in Louisiana.. You can check out Unkel Farms, Cajun Grain rice.. and his amazing Brown Jasmine Rice Grits at the New Orleans and Baton Rouge Farmers markets.

Saw some tourists last week going batty snapping photos of Cochon staff bringing fresh hogs into the side of the building for butchering. Whether you like the place or not, nobody can accuse them of taking shortcuts. Aren't they now breeding their own Mangalitsas with another chef in Mississippi?
