Next Hogs Ready: December 15th
We raise 100% purebred Berkshire Hogs.
Our pork comes from happy hogs! Our hogs are rotated through multiple pastures on our 50 acre farm. Hogs are always kept together and a large part of their diet comes from forage. We believe a happy environment and allowing the hogs to pick and choose a large portion of their diet creates the best tasting meat. Each hog spends time in a wooded environment, grass fields, and orchards to ensure maximum nutrient density and flavor.
The Berkshire breed is unique because it is very different from other breeds in terms of meat characteristics and quality. Berkshire pork is the pork equivalent of Kobe beef, and it has a rich flavored taste, deep coloring, and fine marbling which is akin to the highest grades of beef. We sell whole or half based on the the hanging weight, which is the weight of the carcass after the animal has been slaughtered. Normally our hogs are around 10 months old, and weigh 250 lb. This will yield a carcass of about 180 lbs, which is about 140 lbs of meat, and 40lbs of skin/bones. You will need about 8 cubic feet of freezer space for a whole hog.
All animals on our farm are humanely treated and slaughtered. Click here to learn about our practices and how we treat our animals.
We sell whole hogs for 6$/lb that you can have cut and packaged how you’d like. You can expect around 140-150 lbs of packaged pork per whole hog.
We sell half hogs for 7$/lb that you can have cut and packaged how you’d like. You can expect around 70-75 lbs of packaged pork per half hog.
