Pork shares are sold by the quarter, meaning you are buying one-quarter of the animal. There is always variance between hogs, so no two shares will be exactly alike or include the exact same cuts, but they include a complete sampling of cuts from the entire hog. To learn more about what is in a quarter share, please view the sample menu here. We have historically done fresh pork belly, but our butcher now has a smoke room to cure bacon and we expect to be able to offer that soon.
The price for a single share is $6.50 per pound all-in. So, for example, a share weighing thirty-five pounds costs $227.50. You are of course able to purchase more than one share. A quarter share fits easily in a typical freezer with plenty of room to spare. Unlike the beef shares which are available on a regular basis, pork shares are available when we have enough customers interested to harvest a whole animal. You are of course welcome to purchase more than one share, including an entire hog. Many customers have organized with family and friends to go in together and split a whole or half hog.
If you are interested in purchasing a share please complete the form here. We will be in touch with the date you can expect your share, and send an invoice requesting a $50 deposit, which you can pay online with a credit or bank card. The balance will be due at the time of pick-up, which we will arrange once the shares are ready. Customers are always welcome to pick-up directly from the farm, but for those that live further away we are happy to meet you somewhere in between, if not at your doorstep.
Thank you for supporting local agriculture and our family!
