Pigs don't eat grass. They're omnivores like humans. You'd want to look for pastured lard, similar to pastured eggs or poultry. The only meats that are grass fed are cows/lamb and the like because they're grazing omnivores. The phrase "grass fed" around here has turned into MDA's version of "Kleenex" or "Xerox" haha.

The fish I buy is ALWAYS wild caught - grass fed/pastured meats are 100-200+% more than conventional so there's no way I'm spending that much, but wild caught is only $1-2/lb more than farmed in most cases. Hell, I can get wild coho salmon for the same cost at Trader Joe's as Shop Rite's chum or farmed salmon, so that is DEFINITELY an expense I'm willing to make. This adds up to an extra $3-5 a week vs buying pastured meats, which would cost $30+ more per week. I consider pastured meats to be the least important part of the Primal Blueprint.
