Thrushwood Farms Bacon Cooked Measured

We tried the Apple Cinnamon Spice Bacon. It was quite a pleasant surprise. Normally there is a faint hint of the flavor an item advertises. This bacon was loaded with flavor! 
 Fantastic bacon. The bacon itself is incredible and the pepper really gives it that extra boost of flavor. Definitely would recommend it. 
Your order arrived in great condition. The gel packs were still frozen and the bacon nice and cool. I tried the pepper bacon and it was outstanding, great the best. 
Daniel T    Infamous Black Pepper Bacon
 Delicious! Not even a big fan of bacon usually and I really enjoyed it. My family gobbled it up!! I’ve never ordered meat online before, but it was really easy. Shipping was super fast (one day!) and everything was still very cold when it arrived. I’ll definitely order again!
