All prices are based off the hanging weight (dead weight) of the animal. You will take home approximately 60-70% of the hanging weight in finished meat for a pig.
Live weight - the weight of the animal when it arrives at the processor
Hanging weight - dressed out weight of the animal. For pigs, this equals about 75% of live weight. This is the weight we use to determine the price for your share.
Yield weight - weight after the livestock has been cut into various packages. This is what you will take home. This is approximately 60-70% of hanging weight.

Pork shares are a convenient way to purchase your pork cuts in bulk. When you consider the cost of buying 100+ pounds of pork at the individual cut prices, the savings can add up quick.
We offer whole shares and half shares. If you believe this might be too much for you, many of our customers choose to go in on a share with family and/or friends.
Currently our pork share prices are $7.00-9.00 per pound based on hanging weight. We reserve the right to change our prices at any time without any notice due to the ever changing price of feed and the economy.
Currently, we do not have a harvest date for our next round of pork shares.
Choose from a whole hog or half hog share from the drop down above. Whole hog shares require a $150.00 deposit and half hog shares require a $75.00 deposit. All deposits are non-refundable unless an unforeseen circumstance occurs on our end. This deposit will go towards the total cost of your share. Deposits are required in order to reserve your hog share.
The customer. We have it set this way because processing fees can vary depending on which pork cut packages you choose. Processing fees for our selected butcher are currently $0.85 per pound of hanging weight, plus a harvest fee of $75.00/hog. These prices can change at any time per the butcher. We do our best to keep up with these changes.
To have your meat cured (what you normally find in the grocery store), our butcher charges $2.00/lb. If you prefer sausage links or patties, there is a $1.00/lb fee.
You can find the different cut packages we offer here.
We will email you with further instructions and you will then choose which pork cut packages you prefer for your share.
Since price is based off of hanging weight, the butcher will contact us with the weight and we will contact you for final payment.
Full payment is due before picking up your meat or delivery.
We highly recommend investing in a freezer. Keep in mind that 1 cubic foot of space will hold approximately 35 pounds of meat.
Our pigs weigh approximately 230-300 pounds of live weight at the time of harvest. This means the hanging weight is approximately 150-200 lbs. Once processed, the yield weight (what you take home) will be approximately 125 lbs for a full share and 60 lbs for a half share. Please keep in mind that poundage will vary because every animal is built differently.
We have a full blog post dedicated to explaining different pork cuts. You can find the post here.
