Bacon, sausage, pork loin, ham, pork chops, country ribs, etc...all available through us by reserving a half or whole pig which will be available the second week of January. If you have never filled your freezer with pork from your local farmer we can help you. We use no antibiotics or unnatural/added hormones. $50 reserves your half or whole pig which will go toward the remainder of the cost to be received when you receive your packaged pork. We are charging $2.65/lb hanging weight (weight after gutting). Total cost per pound depends a little on what you get smoked or seasoned but typically would end up being roughly $3.50 to $4.25/lb. Contact me or Monica if you have interest or questions.
