Pork

Our pasture-raised pigs live outdoors at the edge of our old apple orchard, where they can rest in the shade of the trees or run out to the pasture.

The pigs love living on our farm because they get lots of treats from the veggie fields.  An ugly carrot? A tomato with a soft spot?  A twisty cucumber?  The pigs love them!  It’s a great way for us to “recycle” produce that we don’t have a market for. The pigs also eat a diet of local grains, the plants growing in the pasture, and the apples that drop from the trees above.

Where to purchase

We will have a limited number of pork shares available in fall 2019. 

We offer pork shares by the “quarter” of an animal. When you buy a pork share, you will receive a mix of cuts from the pig including pork chops, smoked ham or ham steaks, bacon, a few types of sausage, ground pork, hocks, and ground pork. If you like, you can also receive some of the more unusual cuts like lard and kidneys.

Weight of a typical quarter share:  32 lb. of pork

Cost:  $ 305 / quarter share

If you would like to order a whole pig, we can arrange for you to have it custom cut by the butcher to your specifications. Let us know if you’re interested in this option.

For more information and to reserve a pork share, email benjamin@heartyroots.com.
