PLEASE NOTE: this is the deposit ONLY for the 1/2 pig
We raise and graze heritage breed pigs in our forest where they have access to roots, tubers and natural forages. We also feed them fermented GMO free grain, high omega 3 duck weed and A2 milk from our family milk cow.
Half a Pig
Please note this price is the deposit only. The remainder of the cost will be due when you receive your order. A whole pig averages 100lbs.
We butcher our pigs in the fall. As a small farm, our pork sells out fast. To avoid disappointment, please fill out the form below to be added to our wait list. We will contact you when pre-orders open for fall 2021 pigs.
While many bulk animal programs set prices by the weight of the live animal or hanging weight (and promote a lower price per pound), we only charge you for the meat you’re receiving, so the price per pound is always accurate and reflects what you’re actually putting in your freezer. There are no hidden costs such as butcher fees, that other producers may charge when they price according to hanging weight.
Our pork is $6/lb on meat that goes into your freezer. A half a pig averages 70-80lbs of usable meat.
If you are used to ordering your bulk pork by the hanging weight, this price works out to $3.30/lb on hanging weight + butchering fees.
Example of total cost:
$6/lb x amount of meat in pounds ($6 x 70lbs = $420)
- deposit ($150)
= $270 due on pick up ***
What you get in a whole pig:
-1 large bags of chops (or individually wrapped)
- 7lbs ground pork (or for sausage)
- 1 pack of ribs
- 2 pork hocks
- 9- 3lb roasts or hams, (this can be reduced if you'd rather have more sausage, or some made into butt steaks)
- 6lb of bacon
- bag of soup bones for broth.
-optional: liver, and fat for rendering down to lard of ~2L yield
PLEASE NOTE: If you'd like sausage to be made from ground pork, roasts or hams, please reach out to us directly and we will work with the butcher to accomodate your requests. There will be additional costs associated with this and it will be added to your final bill upon pick up.
