The Cochon US Tour is dedicated to practicing social and environmental responsibility, while continuing whole animal education through flavorful experiences.

If you have ever been to a COCHON 555 event, you know that its all about a ton of food, tasty drinks, and great times. Started in 2012 in an effort to bridge the gap between family farms and all categories of BBQ restaurants, Heritage BBQ by Cochon 555, is the first national BBQ event dedicated to supporting a new direction for heritage breed pigs. Created by Cochon Founder Brady Lowe, Heritage BBQ aims to engage BBQ chefs/restaurant in local and sustainable food conversations in an effort to raise awareness for responsible farming by hosting events with well-known chefs, craft brewers, great winemakers, and prestigious distillers.

“My goal is to create team building events that showcase the growth potential of BBQ restaurants buying whole heritage pigs from family farms. The process and judging format is my best approach at whole animal utilization, whereas we do not create a burden on small farmers to hold a surplus unwanted animal parts during any part of our competition,” says Lowe. “The events are hyper-local and they create word-of-mouth marketing for family farms. It’s an honor to have a national spotlight right and develop a message with a deeper meaning, far beyond competition BBQ. Today, we are reaching out to people who care about the conversation of local food made by real people. This event series is unlike any BBQ event you know...

The Heritage BBQ event is 100% inclusive.
