Our pigs live out doors in the sun and the shade. They run, root, wallow, and lounge to their hearts' content. We feed a locally milled, non-GMO grain mixture, they devour the excess from our farm garden during the summer months, and the pigs can eat whatever they turn up in our diverse pastures and woodlands.
We raise Berkshire pork because it is incredibly juicy and has a fantastic flavor. It has gained a reputation as being the Kobe Beef of pork, which is to say that it marbles well and is very tender. The flavor of our pork is unlike what you find in stores. See our protocols for details about how we raise our animals.

Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable. After your chosen butcher date, we will bill you for your portion of meat minus your pre-paid deposit.
Butchers typically charge for their services based on the hanging weight, which is the weight of the animal after slaughter but before packaging. Cutting and packaging the meat reduces the weight by approximately 15%.
You will be billed at a rate of $8.09/lb. on the hanging weight of your portion. This includes the basic cut/wrap fees from the butcher. Cured and smoked meat will add $1.50/lb. to your total bill. Delivery fees for each pickup location will vary.
