If you have a little freezer space and you’d like to economize, you might be interested in buying our meat in bulk shares. Pork is sold as whole and half shares and beef is sold as halves and quarters. The pricing is based on the “hanging weight”, which is the carcass weight on the butcher’s meat hook after the skin, internal organs, hooves, and head are removed, but before further processing into retail cuts. The final amount of meat you take home varies with each animal and depends on whether you want bone-in or boneless cuts, but as a rough estimate we find that the final yield is around 70% of the hanging weight. The table below summarizes the major points on pricing.
|Half Hog||Whole Hog||Quarter Beef||Half Beef|
|Price per pound Hanging Weight||$5.25||$5.00||$6.00||$5.75|
|Average Hanging Weight||85-110 lbs||170-220 lbs||150-175 lbs||300-350 lbs|
|No Nitrite Smoking (all other butcher fees besides smoking are included in the price per pound above)||$2.50/lb (~$30 for bacon, ~$40 for ham)||$2.50/lb (~$60 for 2 bacons, ~$80 for 2 hams)||N/A||N/A|
|Average Final Packaged Weight||64-83 lbs||128-165 lbs||101-117 lbs||201-235 lbs|
|Average Total Price||$582||$1,115||$975||$1,870|
|Upright Freezer Shelf Space (rough estimate)||2-2.5 shelves||4-5 shelves||3 shelves||6-7 shelves|
|Freezer Space (cubic feet)||2-3||4-5||4||8|
|Deposit Required to Reserve||$75||$150||$100||$200|
Ordering in bulk may be a little intimidating at first, but if you get in touch with us we can walk you through the process and make sure everything makes sense. Pork is available periodically throughout the year. For pork orders, please use the Pork Cutting Instructions form to place your order. At present, beef quarters and halves are only available in the fall/early winter. Please email us if you are interested in ordering beef.
