time to order-up your pastured pork for 2019
no more time for contemplating
I mean, it’s time NOW!
To purchase the one remaining Half Hog,
please read below
We are asking for a $250 down payment which will reserve your pork. This money will be put towards your final bill after processing, come early summer 2019.
We rotationally pasture our pigs, providing new and fresh pastures (in season). We supplement these green pastures with Graham’s Certified Organic Swine feed. This is a balanced feed with energy, nutrients, vitamins, and minerals.
These are very healthy, very active, super energetic animals. We provide plenty of space for all sorts of exercise and pig antics. These are happy, absolutely exceptional animals with fabulous taste.
We will be selling this well-tended pork, pre-ordered. You will make arrangements with us to purchase a half. You will order your pork cut and packaged as you choose, from Ebel’s USDA Processing in Falmouth, MI.
we have yet to determine our selling price for 2019, as this is cost-dependent (primarily feed costs, which can be volatile).
in 2018 it was $4.62 per pound, hanging weight.
we will be somewhere between $4.50-$5.50/pound in 2019 as well.
We anticipate each half pig weighing between 70-90# “hanging weight” (This is the processor’s weight measure. We will charge you based upon this hanging weight.) A whole is twice that.
This will yield between 45-60# “commercial cuts” per half hog. A whole, twice that. Commercial cuts include pork chops, hams, steaks, roasts, bacon, ground pork, sausage, bratwurst, etc. You can place your customized cutting order directly with Ebels. They can talk you through your many, many options – all of which are extremely tasty!
Ebels will charge you a slaughter and processing fee. This will vary depending on the weight of the animal, and your choices for processing. Anticipate an additional $1.06-$1.84 per pound hanging weight, on top of our charge of roughly $4.62/pound.
There are two charges, paid separately. One is to us to purchase the pig. The second is to Ebels to process the pig for you. You will pick up your finished order at Ebels, or I can deliver to you for a delivery fee.
Your total cost, per half, will likely range from $400-$580. A whole, twice that. We know it’s a large range. While the cost of a half or whole pig is very economical compared to buying individual cuts, we know this can be a challenge to budget for. If you need to stay at a certain dollar amount, please contact us and we can likely work this out.
