Half hog, custom processing deposit

Half hog, custom processing deposit

Feed your family with nutritious non-GMO pork, finished with field peas and barley to create a delicious pork experience!

When you reserve a half hog, you’ll get to choose how you would like your hog processed. This can include hams, bacon, chops, brats, side pork and/or sausage.

You will receive about 60-80lbs of ready to cook meat (about the size of a freezer above a fridge).

Minnesota Department of Agriculture rules require that our customers own their animals before the animals are processed, hence the purpose of this deposit. The deposit will go towards your final total cost of the animal.

We will bill you for the remainder after your meat is weighed at the processor (see price breakout below).

**Looking for a whole hog?  Just make sure the quantity is “2” instead of “1” below and you’ll be good to go.  Your deposit will then be $300 and the other payments will roughly double.
