PORK

Reserve your custom cut whole or half pig now! 

Pork will be ready for pick up between October and November 2017, and again in Spring 2018.

Our pigs are raised outside in woodlot and converted pasture where we feel they have adequate and healthy access to sunlight, shade, and dirt, and all the space and freedom to behave as pigs will. We rotate them on a bi weekly basis, and in addition to the grasses, plants and roots they happily forage for, they are fed organic milk and whey from our dairy, organic waste vegetables from the market garden, and organic grain from Morrison's Custom Feeds in Vermont.

As for the final product you receive, the pork is custom cut to your specifications (it is also possible to have pork state inspected for re sale), vacuum sealed and frozen. We aim to grow these pigs so their hanging weight comes to about 200 pounds (there can be quite a range from about 180-240#, so you can specify if you'd like a larger or smaller pig), which translates to 120-140# of meat for your freezer from a whole pigs, or about 50-70# of meat from a half pig. A whole pig requires about 5 cubic feet of freezer space, and a half pig occupies roughly 2.5 cubic feet, which is the standard size of a refrigerator freezer.  

The cost is $4.50 per pound of hanging weight, with a $0.75 additional cost per pound for any meat you choose to have smoked. If you prefer nitrate free smoking, the cost is an additional $1.00 per pound. 

Please reserve your pig by October 1! We'll email you a cut list then, and the pork can be picked up from the farm at the end of October or the end of November,

Please let us know if you'd like to reserve a half or whole pig by October 1, 2017.
