Pastured Pork Available!

We will be taking 4 more pigs to the butcher on the 26th of April. We are offering our Pork Family Packs again for a discount over retail prices. A pork family pack is a great way to stock up your freezer for summer grilling. Our packages are sized at 20 and 30 lbs to easily fit in a standard freezer. You can read more about the pork packages on our website:

Our pigs are raised without the use of antibiotics. They spend their entire lives outdoors. Outside on pasture they can express their natural behaviors; rooting and enjoying fresh grain, roots, grass, and hay. These pigs are Yorkshire hogs born at Warren Wilson College so you know their mothers were raised outside eating organic grain. You can read about our forest pigs on our blog.

Whole or half hog

If you own a chest freezer or are considering buying one for vegetable preserving and meat storage now is a great time because we are offering substantial discounts on half or whole hogs (over earth day weekend there is a rebate program on all energy star appliances). You can also get it cut exactly how you want.

Small Family Pack

Contains a variety of cuts totaling approximately 20 pounds* of pork. Stock up and “shop” from your freezer-you’ll have all the common cuts of pork to make delicious meals. Try the pork chops for pan-frying, roasts for hearty dinners, ground country sausage for quick savory meals. The Small Family Pack will fit in your refrigerator’s freezer with plenty of room to spare! Sold at a 5% retail discount.

Large Family Pack

The Large Family Pack contains a variety of cuts totaling about 30 pounds* of meat. A great variety pack with all the common cuts including more sausage and pork chops! See details here. If you have a little more freezer space in your refrigerator’s freezer this is a great way to stock up and “shop” from your freezer for months. Sold at an 8% retail discount.

* Family Packs are based on the approximate weights of listed items- each cut of pork is unique!
