A whole pig from CATHIS Farm is the ultimate farm to table experience. Our pasture-raised pigs are nurtured with care and raised in the woods using sustainable practices. Benefits of buying a whole pig include:
How does a Whole Pig order work?
A $200 deposit reserves your CATHIS Farm pig for processing in February 2024. We’ll pick up your meat from the processor and schedule a convenient time for home delivery or pick up from our farm. As we are reserving a pig for you, deposits are non-refundable.
What kinds of cuts are included?
We'll work closely with you to discuss your preferences and walk through the cut sheet before our pigs are taken for processing, so that you receive a customized culinary experience. A Whole Pig order includes all of your pork favorites: sausage, bacon, pork chops, shoulder roasts, ribs, shanks, neck bones and nose-to-tail cuts.
How much will a Whole Pig cost?
Your $200 deposit will be applied to the total cost. The cost of the Whole Pig is determined by the hanging weight of the animal, at $7.00/lb, plus processing costs. For example, for a 250 lb Whole Pig, the average hanging weight is 180 lbs and the total cost will be around $1,460, including processing costs.
How much meat will I receive?
The final cut and wrapped meat you take home after trimming and processing will be an estimated 145 lbs of pork.
How much freezer space do I need?
