Yes!! The time is finally here!
Full of flavor.
The way pork SHOULD taste!
If you can’t already tell, I am SUPER exited to let you know that it’s time to order your summer pork! 😍
What does this mean for you?
Well, let me put a little picture in your head of what’s to come…
(OK, how about several big pictures?)
Here's what's coming up
From April 1st – June 16th – Choose if you want a whole or half hog, pay your deposit to reserve your animal and you have officially said yes, bring me the pork!
June 1st – 16th – Choose your cuts
June 16th – The hogs are going from our farm to Prairie Meats in Olivia MN for processing.
June 17th – Prairie Meats will let me know the weights of the animals and I will let you know the additional amount due for your pork.
Sometime after June 18th – Meat is ready to pick up!
Here's what you get
The cost of the hog that you will pay to us, the farmers, will be $4.25/lb.
The weights for the animals are calculated on hanging weight.
— Hanging weights are generally about 80-90 lbs for a half hog.
— You’ll take home about 60-80 lbs of ready-to-cook meat for a half hog.
— Double those numbers for a whole hog.
There will also be a cost to the processing facility.
— Processing cost will vary depending on how you would like your meat processed (cutting it up, smoking, packaging, etc), but general prices are $100-$150 for a half hog and $150-$250 for a whole hog.

I’m here for more than the finger-lickin’ good meat.
(Despite what my waistline might indicate… 😉)
I am “don’t get me started on my soapbox” passionate about growing animals that are allowed to be the animals God made them to be.
What exactly does that mean?
Sheep that spend time in sunlight eat a variety of pastured forages in the summer months (and not just grains.)
Chickens that free roam the the farm and see sunlight and eat seeds, bugs, grass, grains and anything they can find (rather than living in cages.)
From the day they are born on our farm, our pigs are free to play in the sun, rain and mud, dig in the dirt, burrow in warm straw, and run and squeal as much as they like.
(Did you know that there are a very small percentage of pigs nowadays that are allowed to get dirty? I shake my head….. Crazy, crazy when you can see how happy they are in a mud puddle or digging up some goodies they smell underground!)
It’s such a wonderful feeling to know that I and my family are able to let these creatures live so happily while they are here with us.
Would you like to get to know your farmer before investing? I love to meet my customers too! Come and visit our farm and see your meat in the making!
At the bottom of this page is a place to sign up for bi-weekly emails about farm happenings and there’s also contact information to reach me directly.
Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any questions!
