Deposits are now being accepted for whole and half pigs. We have pigs available for July/August 2018, and will have more again in October/November as well as some later in the winter.
$200 dollar deposits that will be taken off your final bill, are required to secure your whole pig (Just a click away). The deposit helps keep the farm afloat well the pigs are frolicking around the farm.
These pigs where all born on my farm from my small mixed heritage breeding herd. They are a cross between the following breeds: Large Black, Wild Boar, Ossabaw, Berkshire, Tamworth and Duroc. I'm developing my own crossed heritage breeding lines to produce the most succulent and flavorful pork you have ever eaten! These pigs thrive on pasture that I seed specifically for their dietary needs and are finished on a ration of my own spray-free grains that I grow here in the Comox Valley.
What do I get? I raise my pigs to a hanging weight of approximately 180 lbs to 200lbs. This is before the meat is butchered into your chops, roasts, bacon, sausage, ribs, hams etc. I charge $4.50/hanging weight lb for a whole pig. This does not include slaughter and butchering costs, which range from $200-400/ pig, depending on the amount of curing, smoking etc. that you decided to have done to your meat. I send you a custom butchering form 2 weeks before they are due to go into the butchers.
You're looking at about 130 lbs of butchered meat from a 180lb hanging weight pig. This will cost you: $810 to 900 plus $250ish for butchering and slaughter, Totaling approximately $1050 to $1350/whole pastured pig.
Pick up is from Gunther Bro's butchery or my farm. Delivery can be arranged.
