Have you ever wanted to buy your pork straight from the farm but didn’t know how or what to expect? This is your chance! Feel Free to jump in we will take care of you. Being a small family farm you have a chance to be as involved as you like in the raising of your pig. Your pick of the litter all the way to your table.
The price for a whole pig is $3.99/lb based on final hanging weight at the butcher after harvest. A typical pig hangs at 180 lbs so the pig cost is typically $710 or so. Plus the butcher costs, Harvest cut, wrap and smoking. Exactly how you want it. A whole pig is about three to four cubic-feet depending on packing in the boxes. Occasionally a pig hangs a bit smaller or larger.

Your pig will be custom cut based on your preferences wrapped and frozen. Below are a couple of examples of what you can expect from a whole pig. Remember every pig is different so these are just guidelines.
18 lbs pork chops, 4 lbs spare ribs, 12 lbs sausage, 24 lbs ham, 20 lbs bacon, 12 lbs shoulder butt roasts, 14 lbs shoulder picnic, 16 lbs bone/trimmings, 30 lbs fat = 150 lbs
We have piglets available several times a year.
Berkshire pork, prized for juiciness, flavour, and tenderness, is pink-hued and heavily marbled. Its high fat content makes it suitable for long cooking and high-temperature cooking. The meat also has a slightly higher pH, according to food science professor Kenneth Prusa of Iowa State University. Increased pH makes the meat darker, firmer, and more flavorful. High pH is a greater determinant than fat content in the meat's overall flavor characteristics.
Berkshire/Yorkshire Cross has all of the flavor benefits of a purebred Berk but in my opinion they grow a bit faster and are not quite as lean.
The kunekune is a small breed of domestic pig from New Zealand. That makes a great pet and grazes in a pasture like a horse. Kunekune are hairy with a rotund build, and may bear wattles hanging from their lower jaws. Their colour ranges from black and white, to ginger, cream, gold-tip, black, brown and tricoloured.
