This deposit secures your family's pork for the year (at today's current price) and helps your farmer with daily farm expenses during the growing season. Payments can be made in increments and delivery can be spaced out to accommodate your freezer space. You can also share with a friend or neighbour who values quality, outdoor-raised meat and supporting a small producer. Additional pork products can be requested and purchased at any time.
A whole hog roughly the following amounts:

2022 Whole Hog Deposit
All of our free-range meat products should be cooked with low, moist heat. Mandy recommends 325F.
Our birds are not rushed to gain weight. They are raised in 90-110 days, giving a different product than the grocery store or large direct-to-consumer farms. We also do not put additives in our finished chicken cuts that help retain moisture or add unwanted sodium. Our birds thrive outdoors with lots of space and the ability to forage. More exercise adds more flavour to the meat, and low, slow, moist heat brings out the best flavour and texture.
Our hogs are raised outside over 8 months in straw bale houses in the winter and acres of grass in the summer. They are allowed to root, explore and be social which keeps them happy. Again, we recommend low, moist heat for the best result.
