Why Prime Tomahawk?
Whether it’s a special occasion or because you care about serving only the best, Villari Prime brings 5-star quality to the family table every time.
SO JUICY, IT COMES WITH A HANDLE
The Villari Prime Tomahawk Chop is the ultimate meat lover's treat. Thick and center-cut from the loin, it's tender, juicy and richly marbled for melt-in-your-mouth goodness. The “tomahawk” name comes from the distinctive shape of the bone, which is left long, around 6-7 inches. This unique long-bone cut amplifies flavor and makes for stunning appeal on your plate. The Villari Prime Tomahawk chop has an elevated difference from other tomahawk chops: while most will leave the bone “Frenched” with all of the meat cleaned off of it, Villari leaves a little of the most flavorful rib and belly meat on the bone, giving you more meat, and the Tomahawk chop better flavor, and an overall enhanced eating experience.
FROM LOCAL NC FARMS
Villari Prime comes from local North Carolina family farms that take pride in raising hogs with a strong commitment to stewardship. We implement sustainable practices that not only prioritize the well-being of the animals but demonstrate respect for the environment. The result? Consistent quality that is not only local, but is better for you and the Earth.
THE DIFFERENCE YOU CAN SEE
Pork marbling and color are graded on a scale of 1-6. Our Villari Prime Tomahawk Chop cut, consisting of the loin, rib, and belly, has an average marbling content of 3.8 and a color rating of 5.7 - compare that to a regular pork cut with an average marbling of 2.5 and a color of 4.2. This marbling makes for a visually stunning presentation when served, making it great for those who are hosting special occasions and those who simply care about cooking and serving high quality meat. But, you don’t need to be a scientist to understand good pork. Compare Villari Prime to other pork, and you’ll immediately see the difference. Then wait until you taste it.
