Pasture Raised Pork
$3 per pound
We are proud to raise pastured pigs, where they spend their days in the grass, dirt and sunshine, adding natural fertilizer to our pastures and helping us maintain soil health. They enjoy munching on grass, branches and whatever else they can find. They also eat waste produce (like waste apples from a local orchard and pumpkins from a local pumpkin patch), cracked eggs from our chickens, and a barley and pea grain mix from our local feed mill (they enjoy a corn and soy free diet).
We raise our pigs up to about 250 pounds, when they will be processed at Odenthal Meats in New Prague.
They are $3 per pound plus processing (which will range from $0.93 to $4 a pound, depending on what you want and if you want it smoked). They will average about 180 pounds processed weight per hog, 90 pounds per half. (Looking for more information on purchasing meat in bulk, click here for some great information from the University of Minnesota.)
You can reserve a whole hog or half a hog. The next batch of pigs will be available in August of 2021.
