Buying Meat in bulk as a Half or Whole Animal share from our farm is the most economical way to source the highest quality meat, raised regeneratively and organically, and in direct support of your land stewards.
An investment in our meats is an investment in your health, the health of our soils, our waterways, and our regional food communities. Your investment provides good jobs and living wages. Your investment secures your food source despite market disruptions in the commodity food chains. Your investment supports diversified food systems that are resilient.
We believe we are raising the highest quality pork you can find, regeneratively.
Our Organically raised Heritage Breed Hogs live outside on grassy pasture for their whole lives and are fed an Organic grain and alfalfa mix that is grown by us on our farm. They also enjoy the perks of living on an Organic vegetable farm, eating squash, carrots, potatoes and more. The quality of our pork is rare, we control the quality from seed to end of life. Most pork in the market is fed a conventionally grown, corn and soy diet. We are very proud to grow the feed our animals eat right here on the farm in a regenerative way, Organically, reducing our carbon footprint, ensuring there are no chemicals or GMOs in the feed they are eating, and improving our soils.
If you are what you eat, eats…. it’s very important to know what the diets of animals we eat are. We believe an Organic and regeneratively grown feed that is grown on our farm to raise our pigs produces a meat that is more nutritious for you, and better for our soils and waterways.
Prices INCLUDES harvest, standard cut and wrap, bones and fat. If you desire custom cut and wrap options such as sausage in casing, that will be an added cost. We will have a Cut and Wrap Guide pdf ready for you in the coming weeks.

AVERAGE MEAT YIELD BY SHARE SIZE:
Animal shares are sold by the Hanging Weight of the Animal, this is how “Custom Exempt” meat sales work, legally. Below are the approximate yields of the take home meat by share size
Half Hog: ~90 lbs of take home meat (not including bones and fat)
Whole Hog: ~180 lbs of take home meat (not including bones and fat)
All animal shares include the bones and fat, free of charge, for rendering into tallow or lard for cooking as well!
HOW MUCH FREEZER SPACE WILL I NEED?
Freezers come in four basic sizes: compact (5 cubic feet), small (6 to 9 cubic feet), medium (12 to 18 cubic feet) and large (18 to 25 cubic feet).
One cubic foot of freezer space will hold approximately 30 pounds of meat.
Here are recommendations for cubic feet needed based on size of Meat Share:
Half Hog - 4 cubic feet
Whole Hog - 8 cubic feet
Keep in mind if you plan to get a pork share or pastured chickens you’ll want to size up to accommodate.
