Pork Add-ons

Get 10% off retail value when you add a PORK SHARE.  

All pork is raised on our farm, foraging fields and woodland and supplemented with Certified Organic and Soy-Free feed.  This makes for healthier pigs with a more diverse diet than standard pasture-raised pork, and you can taste the difference! 

Pork Sausage Share:  Get 4-5 packages of sausage per month.  Variety rotates each month and includes Mild Breakfast  Sausage, Chorizo, Ground Pork, Italian Sausage, and Bratwurst. 

Pork Sampler Share: Get a variety of pork cuts each month during the season (click here to get an idea of our available options) along with recipes and tips on  using more of the pig than just bacon and sausage (though you’ll get  some of those, too!).
