We are now SOLD OUT of wholesale pork orders for Fall 2017 – we will have pork available again for Spring 2018.
We run a farrow-finish pork operation which means we we have have several Berkshire/Large Black sows and a Large Black Boar, having piglets once a year.
Our pigs live outdoors with access to shelter and fresh straw for shelter and bedding and fresh water to drink. In summer – they have a full mud hole to roll in (pigs don’t sweat which is why they roll in the mud). We are constantly moving their paddocks to ensure they have grasses, forbes, and forages to snack on along with access to the bush, their natural habitat. In the fall we gather fallen fruit and any vegetables we can arrange.
The feed we purchase is undesiccated, non-medicated, 100% soy-free and corn-free, GMO-FREE. It is a mix of peas, barley, flax, wheat – as well as blended in minerals and supplements (no medications). We also purchase undesiccated whole barley from our neighbors which we soak and sprout to ensure that it is digestible for the pigs.
Our pork is available by the whole and half, and the next batch will be ready by Spring 2018. The price is $5.00/lb hanging weight (approximately 180lbs for a whole) plus processing fees.**
Processing fees vary greatly, depending on the amount of cured products you request (bacon, hams, cured loins, hocks, etc). Last year a half pork varied from $600-900 total, depending on weight and processing.
We will work with you to help you select a set of cutting instructions that best fit your needs (we are updating these and will make them available closer to harvest.)
Meat account investors are given the first notice and opportunity to purchase.
“I’m so glad we got the full side! It is seriously the most delicious pork I have ever had! We had a ham for Christmas morning and everyone agreed it was the best!” – Teresa McLaren
** We currently process our pork at Family Meats in Ponoka. Processing fees are listed on their custom meat cutting chart.
