Shares are available by the whole or half hog, or $100 sample packs and are delivered in late November in time for the holiday season!
$100 sample packs contain 15lbs of a variety of cuts of pork (may include bacon, sausage, ham, pork chops, ribs, and pork loin).
For whole and half hog orders you will be able to specify if you want bone-in or boneless shoulder roasts, pork chops and loin roasts, as well as fresh or cured and smoked ham, type of bacon (whole or sliced, cured or uncured), and fresh ground pork and/or a variety of types of sausage. You can also claim organ meats and “extras” like lard, liver, and jowls if you so choose. Customers submit their cutting instructions to the farm (we’re here to help with this process), and are responsible for paying processing costs (~$100-$150 per half).
Whole and half hogs are $4.25/pound based on hanging weight. Average hog hanging weight is about 250 lbs, average half hog hanging weight is 125 lbs. Depending on your instructions to the butcher you’ll take home 70% – 80% of the hanging weight. A $300 Deposit is due at time of order.
All orders will be available for pick up from our drop-site at Begyle Brewing Company in Chicago in late November. More information on pick up day and location will be made available by newsletter in October.
