We are currently pre-ordering for late-winter pork. We have only one hog available at this time.
Our pork is the best you can buy. It is raised in the forest. The hogs have access to up to 30 acres of land to forage and they’re also given a ration of GMO- and soy-free grain that’s been soaked for at least 12 hours, as well as minerals, kelp and fishmeal for protein. The pigs are fed and checked on twice a day and love the head scratchings and pats they get.
We have pork available for pre-order. Pork is $4.75/lb hanging weight*. If you’ve not bought meat in bulk before, here is how the process runs:
- place a non-refundable* deposit of for the animal(s) you want – $150 for a whole hog
- shortly before their harvesting date, we will put you in contact with the processor to choose your cuts
- soon after delivery to the processor, we will receive the hanging weight * of the animal and send you an invoice for the balance
- the processor will contact you with a pickup date. It’s generally about 2 weeks after harvesting. You pick up your meat from the processor (Mt. Airy) and pay them for their services
*What is hanging weight? It is the weight of the animal after the processor has started processing your meat but before the final cuts. It’s typically about 40% of the live weight, but it varies by species. Our hogs typically run about 125-200 lbs hanging weight, but can vary greatly (usually larger). We will let you know in advance if the pig is growing faster than expected (butcher dates are locked in and sometimes can be hard to change).
