Golden Prairie Wild Boar Meat

Wild Boar Meat in Regina, Saskatoon, Yorkton and Saskatchewan

Our wild boars are raised free range on the plains of Saskatchewan. We allow our wild boars to behave naturally by having their young outside in a nest they have prepared themselves out of straw and grass.

Wild boar is different in taste and texture to domestic pig. The colouring of the wild boar meat is a lot darker than normal pork and has its own unique taste. This type of meat is very lean due to the animals’ fat being concentrated in a single layer under the skin instead of it being marbled throughout the meat. This means the fat can be easily trimmed if required, but many cooks believe the fat layer provides a "self-basting" element and helps retain succulence.

Golden Prairie Wild Boar Meats is a family run business. Originally from North West England where we had a sheep and dairy farm we came over to Canada in November 2007 to farm in Saskatchewan. We thought Saskatchewan was the perfect place to raise animals as there is plenty of land and ideal conditions to allow the animals to stay in their natural environment, free range.

Our wild boar meat used to be shipped to Japan but we decided we would like to bring our good wholesome meat to the Saskatchewan people. We started to sell our meat at Farmers markets in September 2009.
