How It Works:
After we receive your order deposit, we will send you instructions with your cut sheet. This will allow you to customize your order to suit your needs. We will then contact you to go over your cut sheet, specify your delivery/pickup preference & finalize your order.

Because of the forage based diets of our pigs you can expect a well marbled, red meat. This isn’t “the other white meat” you are used to from grain-fed pigs, living in industrial facilities. You can expect to take home approx  65lbs of Ontario Pastured Pork. This will take about 2 cubic feet in your freezer.

Your will receive your order as fresh-frozen, labelled & wrapped in butcher paper.
(Another bonus of farm to table, NO PLASTIC or STYROFOAM PACKAGING!)

Pricing Breakdown (sample)
Pricing of custom-processed pork is a bit different than buying by the lb at the store.  Your cost is based on the hanging weight of the pig once it reaches the butcher, plus the cost of butchering and processing. The hanging weight is the weight of the carcass, before it has been butchered, and packaged.  Please note, the actual net take-home weight will be less than the hanging weight, after the meat has been trimmed, with bones and fat removed.

Here is a sample pricing breakdown: (whole pig)
Live Weight Approx 250lbs
Hanging Weight Approx 187.50lbs
Take Home Weight Approx 131.25lbs
Pastured Pork is $4.80/lb (whole) or $5.05/lb (half), (based on hanging weight) plus processing fees.
Processing Fee – Whole Pig – $89 + $.70/lb (regular bone-in)
Please note “Further Processing” such as smoking, sausage etc. is an additional fee. We are happy to provide samples of past orders to give you an idea of what to expect based on your selections.

Sample Cost (processing fees included):
Whole Pig – $1120.00*
Half Pig – $585.00*

*Please keep in mind this pricing is based on a 250lb pig with bone-in butchering & no “further processing”. Weights will vary. Processing fee will also vary depending on your preferences & any customization (smoking, flavoured sausages etc.)

Freezer Space
Whole Pig will tax approx 5.5 cubic feet of freezer space or 4 Milk Crates
Half Pig will tax approx 2.7 cubic feet of freezer space or 2 Milk Crates

Our next processing dates are March 2021. Pork will be available the third week of March 2021.
