After a 4-year hiatus I’m pleased to announce that the PIG PROJECT is back!
Our last batch of pigs was in 2012. I can hardly believe it has been that long but we needed the time to move our household, four kiddos, two dogs, and a mess of chickens.
And then there was that whole demolition and rebuilding of the barn thing.
I’ve said it before, and it bears repeating… we are SLOW farmers!Either way I’m excited to have these cuties back (what?! You don’t find them cute?) and what that means after a few month’s growing time: a freezer full of wonderful bacon.
Want to take the miles and mystery out of your meat?
Want to see where it’s raised and how the animals are treated?
Want to know what they’re fed and that they’re not pumped full of hormones and antibiotics?
Want your kiddos to know where their food comes from?
Then the PIG PROJECT is for you!
- Purchase of a pig
- Feed and all associated raising costs
- Periodic updates and pics (follow me on Instagram)
- An opportunity for your kiddos to participate in the care and upkeep of the pigs (if desired)
- Transportation to the butcher
- Butchering fees and professional butchering
- Family-run, small-farm raised, clean pork
Whole: $550, approximately 140 lbs of meat
Half: $325, approximately 70 lbs of meat
Orders must be placed by May 1st. Estimated delivery early October. Half of the fee is due up-front. Second half due at time of butchering.
If you’d like to purchase a whole or half pig please contact Analisa at Cablehillfarm@gmail.com
raise one to give
As a way to carry on the legacy of Steve’s Grandma Ruth and her life-long work of feeding people, we dream of raising an extra hog to give to the local food pantry or a family in need.
