Remove pork from fridge, and preheat slow cooker on high.
Slice onions thinly and mince garlic, set aside.

Zest and juice orange. Juice limes. In a small bowl, whisk citrus juices, orange zest, and honey.

Heat a large, heavy-bottomed pan over medium high heat and add the coconut oil. Place the roast in the skillet and brown on all sides.

Transfer to slow cooker and reduce heat to low. Place the onions and garlic on top of the pork. Pour citrus/honey mixture over pork. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours.

When tender, use two forks to shred pork into the sauce.
