Baby Back Ribs

These short and meaty ribs are sold by the slab. Each slab/package contains approximately 10-13 curved ribs and will weigh between 2.5-3.5 lbs.
Approx. $26.67
base price: $8.89 per 1 lb

Our Baby Back Ribs are perfect for your next barbeque! They naturally have less fat and more meat than conventional ribs due the Pasture Raised lifestyle of our pigs. The Baby Back Ribs are cut from the top of the loin/rib cage between the spine and spare ribs. Baby Back Ribs are also known as "Loin Ribs", "Back Ribs" or "Pork Loin Back Ribs". They are thicker and have less fat than Spare Ribs and have meat between and on top of the bones. Cook them up moist and tender with either a dry rub or your favorite sauce. Baby Back Ribs can also be interchanged with Spare Ribs in recipes but are smaller so will need a shorter cooking time. 

COOKING TIP: Keep your temperature low and cook them nice and slow to keep your ribs from drying out. Use a meat thermometer to test for desired doneness. 

Each package contains 1 slab of ribs, approximately 10-13 rib bones per slab. 

The advertised price is an estimate based on exactly 3.00 lbs. The final price will vary based on the actual weight of your package. 

All of our pigs here at John Henry's are fed a mix of corn, oats, and alfalfa to keep them happy and healthy. They are locally raised, treated humanely and never given any hormones or antibiotics. Our fields and feed are never exposed to harsh chemicals or pesticides.

Hormone Free Grass-Fed Beef, Pastured Turkey Pork, Open Range Chicken

The benefits of eating pasture raised, grass-fed meats are hard to deny. From the extra nutrients to the shaky ethics surrounding commercially raised animals, pasture-raised cows and free range chickens win every time. While we hear the most about steaks and beef, the same benefits can apply to any animal raised without hormones in its natural habitat. Typically pork or chicken is referred to as pasture raised, or free range instead, as these animals are natural omnivores and eat a little of everything. Our family farm produces grass-fed beef, pastured pork, and free range turkey and chicken. Our gourmet meats and dairy products are shipped fresh to customers in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and the Chicago, Illinois area. Pastured pork, beef, chicken, and turkey is not only better for the animal, but it’s also better for the consumer too. If you’ve shopped for meats at most grocery stores, you probably saw bright red packages of similar shapes and sizes, which is different from the varying packages of beef you would find when shopping with an small, local farmer. Each animal is unique, and John Henry’s doesn’t use steroids, hormones, or fatty feeds on our farm. This produces a higher-quality cut of meat that can vary in size, shape, and color depending on what muscles were exercised more. Grass-fed beef, and pasture raised turkey, pork, and chicken also have fat that is more yellow due to healthy beta carotenes that are present. We also cut each of our meats fresh and ship it to you the same day! If you haven’t tried grass-fed beef, pastured pork, or free range turkey and chicken you don’t know what you’re missing.
