How it works:

Definitions:

Live Weight - Live animal standing on a scale.

Hanging Weight (HW) - Weight from butcher after harvest but prior to breakdown. 

Take Home Weight (TW) - Final weight of actual meat that is packaged for your freezer.

Each animal is unique and will differ in size. Everything below is based on the average and will not be exact to what you will receive.

Your meat will come in clear vacuum sealed packages that will last for years in your freezer without an issue. 

Pick Up/Delivery - Both are an option. 

These are the steps that are taken from start to finish on your whole hog:

  1. RESERVE YOUR WHOLE HOG.  
  2. CHOOSING HOW YOUR HOG WILL BE CUT. This comes after your deposit has been made and prior to the processing stage. You have 3 options here.  You can choose the “All Boneless Cuts” option, our “All Bone In Cuts” option, or, if you’re an experienced custom animal purchaser with a lot of specific preferences, you can choose the “Fill Out a Custom Cut Form” option.  For first time purchasers, we recommend choosing one of the first two options.  See our Q&A for more info.
  3. Once you have selected which option is right for you, you will submit your order and an automatically generated receipt will be sent.

    1. FILLING OUT CUSTOM CUT FORM.  If you choose to fill out a custom cut form for your whole hog, we will send you an email to get this done.  There will be many simple options for what roasts you want to keep and which ones you want to grind into sausage, whether you want to have bone-in or boneless chops, etc.  ​
  4. PICK UP DATE/DELIVERY.  We will confirm the pick up date generally one week prior. We always do our best to communicate in a timely manner.

    1. ON-FARM: You are expected to pick up your order on pick-up day.  If you are unavailable on that particular day, we will make an appointment for the next earliest day that works for both of us.
    2. HOME DELIVERY: Cost will be $85.
  5. PACKAGING and DELIVERY.  Your meat will come frozen in clear vacuum sealed packages. Please come prepared with coolers or boxes for transporting when picking up at the farm. If you choose the delivery option, be ready to fill the freezer!
  6. FINAL TOTAL.  We will have your final invoice total emailed to you a couple of days prior to pick-up/delivery. We ask that payment happens prior to or upon pick up/delivery There will be a 3.5% credit card charge included for those paying by credit card.
