Lately, busy and overwhelmed seem to be at the forefront of my vocabulary. That is…
Farm to front door has never been easier with Perdue Farms direct-to-consumer bundles that include these amazing bacon wrapped rosemary pork chops.
disclosure: I am partnering with Perdue Farms. All opinions are my own.
Farm to Front Door
I grew up in a farming community. I was raised on farmers market fresh veggies and fruit and freezers full of beef, pork and chicken, all straight from the farm. It is something that I really value and supporting small farms is important to me. I recently found out about Perdue Farms direct-to-consumer boxes which are packed full of protein sourced from small family farms that take pride and great care in raising the animals and providing quality meat.
Perdue Farms is more than just chicken, they have a full line of protein products and brands that include Niman Ranch, Coleman Natural, Perdue Chicken, Perdue Harvestland, Panorama Meats, Spot Farms, Full Moon and more. They are the number one supplier in the United States for organic chicken and a leader in premium beef, pork, lamb that are pasture raised, grass-fed, heritage bred, antibiotic free, non-GMO, certified human and GAP.
The direct-to-consumer boxes are full of protein that the whole family will enjoy and consumers will appreciate the care and quality that they are receiving. Perdue is hitting their 100 year anniversary this year and are eager to let the world know that their passion for farming, land preservation and healthy and nutritious food can easily be delivered from their farm to your front door.

Bacon Wrapped Rosemary Pork Chops & Asparagus
I received the medium Family Bundle box from Perdue Farms which included these incredible bacon wrapped rosemary pork loin chops from Niman Ranch. I decided to pair this with my famous asparagus. The result was a juicy, tender and savory meal that had my family begging for more. The pork chops are thick, and sear up nicely over a good medium heat with a bit of olive oil
The bacon adds a bit of that smokey flavor to them and although I thought initially that the pork chops were too small, there was plenty of meat for our family of 4. My husband said that you could taste the difference in the meat and we all agreed that it was not tough or dry like you would purchase in the stores. It reminded me of the meat we would have our freezers stocked with as a kid.
It paired perfectly with the asparagus and made for a really filling and great low carb meal. The medium family bundle came with 2 packages of the Niman Ranch pork loin chops for a total of 4 pieces of meat. We did not have any leftovers, but we did go in for seconds, so there is that tidbit. I think in the future we would order a couple extra packages of these awesome pork loin chops because we really enjoyed them.
Sustainability Is At the Heart
Perdue farms is leading the protein industry but they are taking sustainability to heart and making sure that this Earth is taken care of too! As a biologist, sustainability is so important to me. When I look at carbon emission levels, changes in climate, loss of agricultural areas and population changes, all of it can be so overwhelmed and worrisome. Knowing that I am purchasing from a company that is focused on sustainability is important to me.
Perdue Farms is taking steps to reduce their ecological footprint and protect Mother Earth. They are doing this by implementing a few really awesome initiatives and changes:
- Arbor Day Foundation Donation: For every bundle shipped, Perdue Farms is donating to help replant damaged areas of our nation’s forests, helping to reduce the carbon footprint required to ship the products to your door.
- Shipping Boxes Designed for Sustainability: Every box is made from 100% recyclable cardboard and insulated with Green Cell Foam®, which is eco-friendly packaging that is biodegradable, compostable and made from high-grade, non-GMO cornstarch that soluble in water.
- Reusable Grocery Bag: A great way to avoid using paper or plastic when heading to the grocery store!
- Pollinator Seed Packet: Bees and butterflies are essential to food production from the bottom of the food chain all the way to the top. Plant the seeds and create a pollinator habitat near your home!
