QUEENSTOWN, Md. — Two things that go together well is football and delicious pork! The Maryland Pork Producers Association has partnered with the Raven’s Football team for the remainder of the season to promote pork consumption, safe handling, and our producers.
With 2% of the U.S. population growing and producing food for America and many others, it is important to recognize the smaller percentage of those who raise pork. In Maryland there are family farmers, producing 18,500 market-ready hogs a year.
This football season, enjoy tasty pork during the Raven’s Football games! You can find new recipes to try online at marylandpork.org. And remember, the safe internal pork cooking temperature is 145 degree. Learn more about safe pork handling at pork.org.
Funds for this partnership were provided by the National Pork Checkoff Program. This program was established in 1986 to promote pork, research, and consumer information.
Enjoy your next set of BBQ ribs, pork kabobs, or Italian sausage and Go Ravens!
