Cost is $5.25 per pound hanging weight plus a slaughter fee of $25 per half. We require an up front deposit of $150 per half ($300 for a whole) to reserve your hog. Reservations are made toward the beginning of each year on a first come, first served basis. Slaughter happens in groups during the fall and early winter. We are now taking deposits for 2018 so you can fill out the order form below to reserve your share or be placed on the wait list, depending on availability. Returning customers will get priority, followed by the order in which inquiries were received.
Cut and wrap costs are paid directly to the butcher. We use Shy Ann Meats, a local processor that will also accommodate a number of dietary restrictions. Cut and wrap costs fluctuate, but are around $.59 per pound plus additional costs for curing and smoking (hams, bacon, etc.). We recommend stopping by Shy Ann and picking up a couple of their many varieties of bacon and trying their sausage, so you can get an idea of what you like.
