Ta-da! That's it.
Our hogs are raised on pasture and rotated through plots of millet, beets, turnips, beans, squash, zucchini and more during the spring, summer and fall and are ready for your table in late fall.
Purchasing a whole or half pork share is the most sustainable ways to harvest an animal (it's technically only a "share" if you buy a half!) and make the most use of the all cuts that can be provided. It is also one of the most financially efficient ways to purchase local meat from small farms. Participating in our meats shares allows you to customize your cuts to match your individual preferences. Thin chops or thick, bacon or fresh belly... it's your choice!
Pork shares will be ready in October and November. Cured items will take 4 to 6 weeks longer. We are limited to the number of animals we can raise for our shares, so best to reserve early.
