Tyner Pond Farm Lard is a type of fat that is obtained from our pastured pork. It is a white, semi-solid fat that is solid at room temperature, but it becomes liquid when it is heated. Lard is commonly used in cooking and baking, and it is known for its ability to give foods a rich, flavorful taste. It is also used as a spread on bread and as a shortening in pastries. In some parts of the world, lard is also used as a hair conditioner and a skin moisturizer.
