How to Buy Timber Raised Pork from Grassfed Farms
Go whole hog and buy your pig on the hoof direct from the farm
Our pigs are ready for the table when they reach 250 to 300 pounds. The price is $2.50 per pound. In addition there is a $50 processing fee and the cost of cutting the carcass to your specifications and vacuum packaging is .65 cents per pound. The carcass weight or hanging weight is approximately 75% of the live weight.
Go Half Hog
When you go half hog you will have to wait until we can match a buyer for the other half. The price is $3.25 per pound plus $25 processing fee and .65 cents for butchering and vacuum packaging. Example: A 250 pound pig on the hoof will convert to about 187.5 carcass weight. One half will equal approximately 93.75 pounds. So your price will be 93.75 pounds times $3.50. About $328.13 plus the processing and packaging fees paid to the processor. Here is the typical half Hog Pork Cuts. ￼
