Quick Pork facts to know before you order:
- $525 package deal includes 300 lb. hog and basic processing
- PRICE VARIATIONS: Due to selling so many we have not been able to keep them consistently at 300 lbs., so we have adjusted our invoicing system so that if the hog is under 300 lbs. your price will be less than $525 or if it is a bit over 300 lbs. your price will go up accordingly
- Pick up at our store only — we do NOT ship RAW meat
- 2-4 month wait time: Currently we estimate it will take us that long to get your hog done, from time of order till time of pick up. updated FEB 6, 2023
Looking for bulk pork?
Through a local farmer we’re pleased to offer corn-fed meat hogs. You can buy these from us as a whole hog or a half hog. These fine porkers have just the right body style to provide your family with thick, rich bacon, juicy sausage, savory chops, and much more!
Processing Options Include:
Sausage: your choice of mild, medium, hot, or extra sage
Pork-chops or tenderloin
Sliced & Cured ham
Shoulder roasts or shoulder steaks
Sugar Cured bacon
Take Home Meat Weight:
Normally our hogs produce between 150-180 lbs. It can vary quite a bit depending on the cuts of meat you choose. The more boneless products you get, like pork tenderloin & sausage, the less your take home weight will be because you are leaving bones here. On the other hand the more bone-in cuts you choose, like pork-chops, pork hocks, and spare ribs — the more your take home weight will be because you are taking more of your hog home with you. 🙂
How to Order:
Once you decide you want one of our meat-hogs, you can place the order over the phone or in person at our butcher-shop. At the time of order, we will go over a cut-sheet with you.
Feel free to get acquainted with our BLANK CUT SHEET by clicking here. Better yet, have a look at an EXAMPLE CUT SHEET that is already filled out to give you an idea of the possibilities.
First Time to Order? No worries.
If it is your first time for having a hog processed and you are not sure what all you want done with it, don’t worry, we will be glad to walk you through the various options. After you have placed the order, given us the instructions for how you want your pig processed, and taken care of your down payment, your work is done! You can relax and wait for us to call or text you and let you know it is done and ready for pick up. For your convenience, you can just pay the balance when you come to pick up your processed hog.
Processing your way
We process our hogs to your custom specifications, but following is a list of some of the common cuts & packaging instructions.
Bone-in pork chops OR boneless pork loin
Bone-in pork chops & boneless pork-loin are mutually exclusive since they come from the same part of the hog, so you have to choose one or the other, unless you are getting a whole hog, then you can opt for half pork-chops and half tenderloin. Normal thickness for pork chops or tenderloin is 1/2 inch, but if you prefer a different thickness, let us know and we will do our best to do it your way. If you go boneless you will also get baby-back ribs as well as the “inner loin” or tenderloin left whole. Or if you go bone-in on the pork chops those bones that would have been baby-backs will be a part of your bone in pork chops.
We can sugar-cure the hams but keep in mind that we do not cure the ham while it is whole. We have to slice the ham in order cure it. The default thickness for our sliced ham is 3/8 inch, if you prefer a different thickness just let us know. That being said, if you want your ham whole we can keep it whole for you, but it will be a “green ham”. In other words, it won’t be cured. You can also also have your ham “plain sliced”, put into ham roasts, sausage, or pork burger. We have noticed a growing number of people REALLY like pork burger… so you might want to try that sometime.
Many people get these sliced as pork steaks/ sliced shoulder. These are hard to beat on the grill or skillet, and in my humble opinion, they will rival pork chops… if you cook them right. Another really good option for the shoulders is putting them into roasts. The shoulder roasts tend to be a bit more juicy and tender than ham roasts normally are. Sometimes people who are into smoking meats choose to have have their pork shoulders put into Boston Butts and Picnic Butts. Of course if you are looking to get more sausage or pork burger, you can throw your shoulder into sausage or burger.
Pork Belly / Bacon options
By far, the most popular choice is to have us slice & sugar cure the sides of bacon. We do offer a “natural cure” (same price) for those wanting to avoid nitrates. In times past we used celery juice powder as a curing ingredient, but now we just leave out the nitrates and your bacon still has a fine flavor. If you prefer to leave your bacon plain, we can simply slice it for you without curing it at all, or we can leave the “middlins” whole, and you can take your side of bacon home as fresh pork belly if you prefer.
Hog Jowl has the same curing options as the standard bacon, namely: Sliced & cured, plain sliced, left whole, or we can just add it to your breakfast sausage.
The 2 most common options are, putting them into your sausage, or keeping them back to cook with a pot of beans. If you do want us to save the hocks for you, you can get them “plain” (uncured) or you can get them sugar cured.
Spare Rib options
Some folks consider spare ribs to be some of the best part of the hog, yet others are ready to have us put it into the sausage. The only issue is, that since it is comprised of numerous bones, you really are better off taking them as spare ribs — at least that is my take on it 🙂 Most times we cut the spare ribs down to half rack sections. If you prefer other options or whole-rack we can do that for you instead.
Breakfast sausage options
You can get your sausage, hot, medium, or mild. You can also control if you want extra sage, normal sage, or no sage. That gives you the control to have your pork sausage tasting just the way you like. We even go further, if you have a favorite sausage seasoning, simply bring it here when you order your hog and we will be glad to use YOUR FAVORITE seasonings on your sausage. Your pig done your way!
Pork burger option
Let us know if you want pork burger from your hog. Be aware that you may have to sacrifice a ham or shoulder in order to get enough ground meat to do both sausage AND pork burger on a whole hog. Also note that we cannot do both sausage AND pork burger on just a half hog. If you are doing half-a-hog, you will need to choose between one or the other.
Organ meat & extra fat options
Should you so desire, we can keep the pork liver for you, whole or sliced. You can also tell us if you want us to keep the heart or the extra fat… if there is any left after using what we need for your breakfast sausage.
We vacuum pack the steaks/ chops & roasts, but we put your sausage and/or pork burger in tubes.

How long does it take?
Normally it takes 2-4 months from when you order your meat hog till it is ready to be picked up. In the fall the wait time increases significantly because of high demand. COVID-19 has also totally messed up our wait time. We keep that updated on the top of this web page. During deer season we totally quit processing hogs to focus on deer processing, so we accumulate hog orders throughout that time and the result is that if you place your order around deer season time it could be several additional months till we can get your hog done.
