Heritage Pork

Sold Out for 2017!

Its like opening a little white package of melt-in-your-mouth happiness….all 100% guilt free because this pork is actually good for you!  

In fact, every time you fill the house with the aroma of sizzling bacon, or serve up a platter of fall-off-the-bone baby back ribs, you give "health food" a whole new meaning! 

Our heritage grown pigs are raised with plenty of space and live happy little lives. They eat patties of freshly sprouted barley grass every day, which keeps them healthy and makes their meat full of grass-fed nutrition. They also eat a locally-milled, non-GMO and soy-free feed.

In the fall, we finish them on all the excess from the garden, windfall apples, and bags and bags of acorns.

Acorns?  Yes, instead of burning or landfilling fall oak leaves, our farm members bring them to our pigs. The pigs pick out and devour every last acorn and then turn the leaves into beautiful compost.

 

And that might just be the best recycling program on the planet. Feed a pig what would otherwise be landfilled, and he makes BACON. Can I get a hallelujah? 

(Beware though…Kid Creek Pastures bacon has been responsible for converting many a vegetarian.)

Pigs are sold by the wholes and halves, and your finished price ends up being around $8/lb. A half hog will give you around 60 lbs of meat—enough to fill about 1/2 of a fridge-top freezer.

Thanks to USDA regulations, we get to that price in a round about way.

You pay us $4.50 per pound on the hanging weight (the weight without head, feed, and insides.)

And then you pay the butcher $.65 cents a pound to cut and wrap your meat, and a small kill fee ($40 for a half.) There are also extra costs if you want any of your cuts smoked.

The pigs are harvested in the fall. When they leave our farm for the butcher shop, we let you know what their final weight was and send you final invoice, minus your deposit. When the butcher is finished, he’ll let you know its time to pick up your meat.  You’ll pick up at his shop in Weed and pay him for his services.

Due to our land management practices and limited space, we raise only one small batch of pigs each year, and we always sellout quickly.
