We raise pastured pork from late spring until late fall. Wholesale (whole or half) pork is only available for the fall. You are purchasing a deposit on a live animal.  When ordering bulk, your total cost will be between $300 - $350.  This price will be the total for a half, including for butcher cost.  



Approximate freezer meat from a 1/2 pig:


12 LB Pork Chops

12 LB Ham Roast

10 LB Sausage (brats, italian, breakfast - your choice) OR Ground Pork

8 LB Ham Steak (sliced ham slabs)

7 LB Shoulder Roast (Pulled Pork, etc)

6 LB Bacon

5 LB Tenderloin, Pork Ribs, and Pork Shank

4 LB Shoulder Steaks


You may have your hams ground into sausage if you wish.



You pay for the weight of the pig after it is killed by the butcher.  Sorrels Beef Company price is $2.35 per lb hanging weight. Hanging weights vary by animal but typically average 90-115 lb for a 1/2. Cost estimate to the farm is $235 for a 1/2 pig. Total price will vary based on the actual weight. We will invoice you prior to pickup. Your deposit will be deducted from the total price.



Processing cost to the butcher is SEPARATE and must be paid to them at pickup. You are paying them for the service of cutting up and wrapping your meat under USDA inspection.  Butcher price varies based on sausage and curing, but will be $85-$125 for each half. Custom Processing is by USDA facility Chenoa Locker in Chenoa, IL. The butcher will walk you through the cut order to get your pig exactly as you want it.  It is very easy.  You may get back the pork lard, bones, organs, and even the head upon special request.  You'll have more options for sausage if you purchase a whole hog, as there is a 10 lb minimum of each sausage variety.  Pork will be available for you to pick up directly at the butcher in Chenoa, IL 3-4 weeks after butcher date. Pork will be frozen by the butcher ahead of pickup.  They will call you directly when it is ready for pickup.
