Heath Putnam

I am the founder of Wooly Pigs -- http://woolypigs.com -- a company that breeds, fattens and markets Mangalitsa pigs and pork.

The Mangalitsa is a lard-type hog. It produces some of the highest quality pork in the world. The meat of a Mangalitsa (there's not much of it) is wonderful. The fat is unbelievably good.

My profile pictures shows me at a dinner with Paul Liebrandt, chef owner of Corton, a 2 Michelin-star customer of mine in New York.

The other picture in my profile shows me putting some Mangalitsa-Berkshire cross piglets into The Herbfarm's livestock trailer. Many say the Herbfarm has the best food in the entire Pacific Northwest.
