This year we decided to have our first annual hog sale! It’s a tradition with the big butcher places around us and this year we decided to offer you a healthy option. Butcher hogs are usually $4.50/lb. of hanging weight, which includes basic processing. Reserve your hog in the month of December, and you can get a whole or half hog for $3.00/lb., plus $0.75 for bacon and ham. Cuts available from a hog include jowl bacon, ham or ham steaks, pork chops or Canadian bacon, roasts, sausage, lard (these are “fat pigs”), and bones for broth. It’s cut your way for your needs. This is a great way to fill your freezer with some GMO free, pasture raised pork, or give the gift of healthful food to someone you love.
These all weather pigs are great for raising through the winter, so this is a chance to get a head start on next summer and give a gift that gives back: a pig! We have several from this summer that are prime for growing and will be ready to butcher sometime next summer. These pigs handle the snow and cold fine and can grow on almost any feed you can find. Makes a great gift for the aspiring homesteader ready to step up or the experienced hog grower ready to try a heritage breed of pig.
Of course, you can just purchase your holiday ham or bacon for Christmas morning on the website! You can come see the pigs for yourself and pick up your meat on the farm, or we can ship it to you via UPS (just order it before you check out).
