Bacon my mail

I'm thinking of ordering bacon to give to friends this year as a Christmas gift. I have seen Nueske's mail order catalog but I know there must be others out there. Does anyone have any to recommend or to recommend avoiding? I'm not looking for a "Bacon of the Month" type of product but one that I can order by the pound or package. Thanks!

  1. Zingerman's has several kinds of bacon that can be ordered by the pound (or in a bacon of the month club). Also I know a few local farms near me (Phila) will ship their bacon so that might work too - also may ship to you!

    1. As an aside I love the title of your post - I am guessing it is a typo, but I keep reading it like "pimp my ride"

        Ha! I so wanted to say, "Before or after I egg your house?"

          Guess I was typing and drooling at the same time. Thanks for the Zingerman's rec. I'll check them out!

            Not even a tiny bit of worries.....but this would be the bacon I would choose!

                Oops! Worth it to me (I don't eat bacon, it's for my friends!) but they all raved.

                  Would you like one more friend? I'm just a shipment away! ;)

          1. My favorite-favorite bacon is from Green Mountain Smokehouse in Windsor, VT near Okemo. Here's a cool overview of their products--as well as a pic of their thick, maple bacon, mm, mmm, mmmm!--from Roadfood:


            They have a catalog, so I know they ship.

            1. Ha, I too thought the same of your post title as @Bigley9.

              La Quercia has some Tamworth bacon.
