Pigs & Pork
Our hogs are hilarious and always seem to be having a good time.
They are a mix of breeds and come in many nifty colors including red, white, black, striped, and spotted.
Living on a dairy farm they get to drink a lot of milk and we think they are SO very much more delicious than anything that comes out of a grocery store.
For butchering, we use, Odenthal Meats near New Prague, Country Market in Lonsdale, and Rucks’ Meat Market in Belle Plaine.
We charge by hanging weight – the weight of the hog after slaughter as it goes to hang in the cooler. The current price is $2.25 per lb for either a whole or a half hog. A $100 deposit will hold your animal and will be credited on your bill.
Our hogs usually hang at about 200-225 lb. In terms of wrapped meat for your freezer, a half typically yields about 75 lb and a whole yields about 150 lb.
We do NOT include the cost of processing in our per pound pork price. There are just too many options that you may or may not want (smoking, curing, various, sausages, pork burgers, bacon etc.)
Instead, you pay for the processing service when you pick up the meat. The cost to process a whole hog the size of ours is roughly $170-180.
