The most economical way to purchase our Pasture Raised Pork. We sell both Half Pork Shares and Whole Pork Shares. Pricing for our Half Pork Share is $5.00/lb and our Whole Pork Share is $4.50/lb. Weight is determined by hanging weight (pork meat hanging after processing). Typically our pigs have a hanging weight of 240 - 280 pounds depending on when we take them. That means that a typical Whole Pork Share will be between $1000 - $1250 and a Half Pork Share would be $600 - $700.
You will have a lot of flexibility of what you want in your pork share. Such as, you select the cuts that you and your family like and don't have to get the cuts that you don't like or won't use. That meat can go into your sausage portion. That means that you get exactly what you will use. We do this by working with you to fill out a cut sheet after you place a deposit on a share. Then when we take the pig in for processing we give the processor your cutting preferences and they do their thing. We pick them up from the processor and set up a time for you to retrieve your share.
As we mentioned above we do ask for a deposit for your pork share. The deposits are $300 for a Half Share and $500 for a Whole Share. Selling Pork Shares rather than individual cuts helps both the consumer and the farmer. The farmer gets paid for the share which is a larger installment allowing the farmer to pay for the feed for the animals, the processing cost, and other cost associated with raising the animal/s. While the customer gets a better deal on their meat. We are able to give you this great deal because a major cost in us selling to you in smaller portions is storing it in our freezers or in the freezers at the processor.
At this time of transition for our family and our farm we are exploring new ideas to make our farm successful!
One of those ideas are Buying Clubs. A Buying Club is a way that you, our customer, can still get all of our Pasture Raised Meats that you have grown to love, but instead of either of us having to get up and go to a farmers market on the weekend we meet up at a drop point and we deliver your meats that you have pre-ordered online.
This helps us by knowing what we have sold, and only packing those items as well as keeps us from having to spend our entire weekend at markets.
We have loved our markets and getting to meet new people that share our love for farm fresh meats has been great, but we have lots to do on the farm to keep up with demand and we want to spend more of our weekends with our family. The family that is growing come February!
