We offering meat shares to those who want to purchase in bulk. We currently offer:
PORK SHARES: 2021 PASTURED PORK SHARE RESERVATIONS NOW OPEN
Our 2021 pork shares will be ready in July - February 2022. This will be our 7th year offering pork shares!!
reservation process: Pork shares allow you to custom cut a whole or half hog. We distribute cut sheets and schedule your meat pick-up date (at the farm) a few weeks before your processing date. For 2021, you will select your pick-up date at the time of your reservation. If you choose to cure any meat, you will have two pick-up dates. We are happy to offer cut sheet assistance. All cut sheets will be reviewed prior to sending to butcher. Your final bill will be prepared when you pick up your meat. The final bill will not be available until the morning of your pick up. Many people reserve half in July and half in December. We require a deposit to reserve your share and the deposit will be deducted in your final bill.
Our halves usually hang around 100lbs. If you order a half hog, you can expect about 80 to 100 pounds of meat for your freezer, depending on how you process your hog. Hogs harvested in July tend to be lighter than hogs harvested end of year.
cost: $5/lb hanging weight (owed to farm) + processing ($110 to $165/half depending on how you cut and package your meat) + tax. Example: $5x110lb = $550 + $125 processing + 2.5% tax = $692
BEEF SHARES: ACCEPTING 2021 RESERVATIONS
2021 shares will be offered monthly April-December until reservations are full.
reservation process: If you order a whole and half, you will determine your cuts. If you purchase a quarter, we determine the cuts for you so everyone sharing gets a sampling of all the cuts. If you order a whole or half, you are able to decide if you want bone-in or boneless.
You send us a deposit and select your butcher date. Our beef hangs for 21 days and will be ready about a month after your butcher date. All beef comes frozen and vacuumed sealed. You will be emailed a cut sheet several weeks in advance (for whole/halves) for you to tell the butcher how to prepare your meat. When your beef is ready we will schedule your pick up at the farm.
cost: average hanging weight is 800lbs (400lbs per side)
To reserve, please send your check to 38212 Long Lane Lovettsville, VA 20180. We appreciate a heads up so we know to look for it.
