NEXT AVAILABLE PORK BUTCHER DATE IS OCTOBER, 2022.
Due to increased prices of piglets and an unprecedented doubling of the price of non-GMO corn, we've had to increase our prices this year.
We raise pastured pork from late spring until late fall. You are purchasing a deposit on a live animal. When ordering bulk, your total cost will be between $500 - $550. This price will be the total for a half, including for butcher cost.
This price includes:
~$400 to us to raise your pig (paid to us after we drop off at the butcher)
~$120 to the butcher for processing your pig (paid to them at pickup)

OTHER THINGS TO KNOW
You pay for the weight of the pig after it is killed by the butcher. Sorrels Beef Company price is $3.50 per lb hanging weight. Hanging weights vary by animal but typically range between 90-120 lb for a 1/2. Cost estimate to our farm is $400 for a 1/2 pig. Total price will vary based on the actual weight of the animal, which we'll know the day we drop off your pig. 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 $90-$130 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.
