We have received great feedback about our Rose Hill Farm pasture raised pork since we began offering individual cuts in our Farm Stand. We already sold out of bacon! We personally recommend the pork chops.
We are currently taking deposits for quarter and half shares of the Tamworth Oldspot and Berkshire pigs that we are currently raising. Shares will be available for pickup in October. A half share will typically weigh around 70lbs but the final weight (and price) is determined once we get the cuts back from the butcher. Here is an example of what a half share may include:
- 8 lbs of bacon
- 14 lbs of chops
- 4 lbs of loin
- 16 lbs pork shoulder/boston butt
- 4 lbs of ribs
- 10 lbs sausage
- 8 lbs ham
- 6 lbs ground pork
Half shares are $8.50 / lb and quarter shares are $9 / lb. Unlike many farms that offer pork shares, our price per pound is based on the butchered weight, not the “hanging weight” of the pig when we take it to the butcher. A typical quarter share will weigh 35 lbs and cost around $315 and a typical half share will weigh 70 lbs and cost around $595. A $100 deposit is required for quarter shares and a $200 deposit is required for half shares. Send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your share.
We encourage you to stop by the farm to meet our team and the pigs!
