SOLD OUT! Thank you. We may raise hogs in the future, so please check back!
2016 & 2017 Forest Raised Pork
Our pigs are a mixture of Red Wattle, Hereford, and Berkshire. These heritage breeds are known for their wonderful flavor that we enhance by rotating them through our forested property to keep them on fresh forage. They are supplemented with an organic feed. No hormones or preventative antibiotics are used.
The pork is sold as a half hog and priced by hanging weight before it is cut to your preference. Typically, a half hog will weigh around 100 lbs and yield about 75 lbs of meat. We are charging $4/lb. hanging weight. You will order your preferred cuts and pick them up directly from the butcher. We will keep you updated on the timing, location, and butcher ordering instructions.
Here's a rough estimate of the dollars and cents:
$4/lb. hanging weight x 100 lbs + $75 processing fees (paid directly to the butcher) = $475, yielding about 75 lbs of meat for your freezer.
(Note: the above is just an example and can vary based on final hanging weight and your cut preferences)
What cuts of meat can you get out of a half hog?
Here's a quick example:
1-15lb fresh ham roast
13 lbs of pork chops (about 24)
10 lbs ground pork
10 lb shoulder picnic roast
8 lbs fresh bacon
4 lb butt roast
3 lb ribs
8 lbs fat trim
5 lbs stew bones
This will take up about 3 cubic feet of freezer space or about four big paper grocery bags.

We are only offering pork this season and think an "order form" is unnecessary. Mail (E or Snail) us and let us know what you'd like. You can send us your deposit check or let us know if you'd prefer paypal or google wallet (or whatever) and we can go that route.
