The steady decline of the dollar upended his original plan to import top-quality prosciutto from Italy. And the Other-White-Meat-ization of American pork meant he couldn't find meat with enough fat and texture that he could cure himself.
So he partnered with a guy who has suitable oak-hickory-forested land and they returned to pre-industrial breeds of hogs, which they let forage like hogs are supposed to do. Link.
