Farm Happenings for September 22, 2019

Posted on September 18th, 2019 by Yoram Shanan

Hi Farm Family!

This winter we are excited to announce a NEW Hog Share in addition to our Fall veggies. 

The hog share is offered as an add-on and has two delivery dates: Oct. 27th and Nov. 30th.  

Our purebred Berkshire hogs are raised on bountiful woodlot here at the farm without any hormones or antibiotics. This means they enjoy all the wild forage their hearts desire as well as Organic vegetable scraps from our fields. We supplement their diet with a mix of grains that we buy locally. Though our hogs have a healthy and diverse buffet style diet, we do not feed them Organic feed grain due to cost prohibitive prices. Consequently our pork is NOT certified Organic.  

$100 sample packs contain 15lbs of a variety of cuts of pork (may include bacon, sausage, ham, pork chops, ribs, and pork loin).

For whole and half hog orders you will be able to specify if you want bone-in or boneless shoulder roasts, pork chops and loin roasts, as well as fresh or cured and smoked ham, type of bacon (whole or sliced, cured or uncured), and fresh ground pork and/or a variety of types of sausage. You can also claim organ meats and “extras” like lard, liver, and jowls if you so choose. Customers submit their cutting instructions to the farm (we’re here to help with this process).
