Our pigs live luxurious lives in Pig Forest, with free access to pasture and a forest underground. They are fed spent grain from our local brewery, Top Rung; all the whey they want from our dairy; and pasture. Our piggies aren’t given antibiotics or hormones and because they live on pasture and not concrete floors we don’t have to supplement with extra iron. This means you can spend more time thinking about how to cook your pork and no time wondering what you’re feeding your family. If your mouth is already watering then keep on reading below for our easy pork ordering info:
How do I order pork?
Easy! You can order either a whole hog or a half hog. Once you know how much pork you want, you just have to select which cuts you want by filling out our form and mailing or emailing it. Of course if you and your family visit the Farmstead we would love to help you fill out the order form in person!
How Does It Work and When Do I get my Pork?
You pay one person. Us. We then work with you to help you decide how you want your pork delivered to you using our very friendly and easy to use order form. We do all the communication with our USDA Butcher Shop (we use Heritage Meats in Rochester, Washington). When your order is ready we’ll go pick it up and bring it back to The Farmstead. You will pick up your meat from us.
All the prices are based on hanging weight, which is the weight of the pig that has been gutted and has had the head removed. If you buy half a pig it’s $4.50 per lb hanging weight, and if you buy a whole pig it’s $4.25 per lb hanging weight. When you fill out the form, you pay us a $50 deposit for a half pig and a $100 deposit for a whole pig. On harvest day, we’ll give you a call to let you know what the hanging weight is so you can pay the remaining amount and start making room in your freezer! Butchering usually takes about 2 weeks with no smoking/curing, 4-6 weeks if you have requested ham/bacon/sausage.we’ll give you a call when your pork is ready to pickup at The Farmstead.
We prefer cash/check but we also accept all major credits cards (via pay pal with an 2.9% paypal fee).
You pay just one price, regardless of whether you get bacon or sausage, cutlets or not. We aim to harvest our pork at 250 lbs, which will render around 185 pounds hanging weight. You pay based on hanging weight.
