Rocco of Bacon Freak has Acquired has fallen into the hands of my nemesis Rocco “Boss Hog” Loosbrock, owner of Coastal Vineyard’s and I’m happy for Scott Kveton and the other founders of for being able to make a profitable startup in a year. I’m just worried about what will happen to all their hard work in the hands of someone with a poor track record in the Bacon Nation.

For those who don’t know why I distrust Rocco please read my post about how I wanted him exiled from the Bacon Nation. He stole my content and posted it on his own website like it was his own. What makes it worse is he never even references anything I do for the bacon community. It’s just frustrating when you work hard on producing something just to have it stolen, but that’s the risk you take when you publish your work online.

After writing that post early last year I have since forgiven Rocco and decided to just never reference anything he ever does on my blog. This is where the acquisition of causes a problem. I really like the idea behind and I think not talking about on my site would be a disservice to my readers.

Rocco if you’re reading this remember this next part. I will continue to support if he can uphold the original idea behind the site.

Bac’n is a group of bacon enthusiasts drawn together with the dream of providing access to the world’s best bacon. We scour the earth looking for truly magical pork.

I hope I will never see the low quality bacon that Rocco sells on being sold on If that ever happens I could no longer support I owe it to the Bacon Nation to only support and endorse truly great bacon products.

I would like to end this post on a positive note by wishing Scott, Jason and Michael luck on their next adventure. They will always be a part of the Bacon Nation (even if they turn vegan one day). I will also like to wish Rocco luck and I hope he can continue what they have started a year ago. Please don’t let the Bacon Nation down.
