BED & BREAKFAST COTTAGE
Mountain view farm
Interested in putting a whole or half hog in your freezer? We don't blame you! It's a great way to save on our really high-quality meat. To reiterate, all of our pigs are pasture-raised and fed the most high-quality grain. We always source non-GMO grain and are looking to transition to organic. When people try our meat, they're amazed at how flavorful the cuts are. Chefs know that you can tell the health of the animal by the liver. Our pig livers are the best that our buyers have ever seen.
Still on the fence? Our whole/half pig prices are very competitive. We're significantly below most other farms and we are happy to sell you the whole/half pig at almost-wholesale prices.
Our slaughterhouse is humane certified so you can be sure that from start to finish, your animal will have lived a healthy, happy life in ideal conditions.
The prices for a whole pig are 4.75 per pound hanging weight (that's the weight of the pig after slaughter, minus the head, intestines and organs) and 5.00 per pound for a half pig. Typically our pigs dress out (i.e. hanging weight) at 180-200 pounds, which means the price of a whole pig would be between $855-$950. A half pig would be between $450-500. You also pay the cost of slaughter and smoking (if you want your bacons/ hams/ hocks smoked). The slaughter fees usually run about $220 for a whole pig, $110 for a half.
To place an order, the best way is to call us. 860-824-7439. We can walk you through filling out your 'cut sheet' (how you want your pork cut up and processed) and let you know when the next slaughter date will be. We usually send between 5 and 15 pigs to slaughter each month and it takes about 3-4 weeks for the slaughterhouse to process the order. You can expect to have your pork within a month or so of the slaughter date.
We will pick up your meat for you and bring it to our farm at no cost. Please be prepared to come pick up your boxes that same day as we do not have enough freezer space to store your meat. We will give you a call several days in advance to let you know when you can expect your meat to be ready for pick up.
All ready to order? Great! Contact us through the website (under the Contact tab) or give us a call and we'll get the process started.
