Participating in our meats shares allows you to customize your cuts to match your individual preferences. Purchasing a whole or half pork share is the most sustainable ways to harvest an animal (it's technically only a "share" if you buy a half!) and make the most use of the all cuts that can be provided.
We are limited to the number of animals we can raise for our shares, so best to reserve early.
Pork shares are ready in October and November. Cured items will take 4 to 6 weeks longer. A half hog will provide you about 75 to 100 pounds of meat for your freezer, depending on how you process your hog.
Beef shares are ready across the year. We typically run a waiting list so best . A half hog will provide you about 75 to 100 pounds of meat for your freezer, depending on how you process your hog.
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. If you buy a quarter you must take bone-in options.
