Your Pork Raised Properly
There are problems associated with today's industrialized meat production - from transmission of disease and loss of livestock diversity to hazardous and down right disgusting processing methods. Demanding consumers such as yourself want to know where their meat is coming from. Factory farming is an unsafe, inhumane, and ecologically disruptive form of meat production.
Here at Foxfire Farm, we care for our hogs from day one. They all lead very happy, healthy lives, in an environment that allows for normal animal behavior such as rooting and socializing. Raising them in the old world, heritage fashion means they are hormone, antibiotic, and steroid free. All our hogs are allowed to roam in the open air and sunshine as they choose but can also enjoy a large shelter with deep bedding when resting. Our hogs have continuous access to clean water and their diets are enriched with quality grains, alfalfa/grass hay, apples, pumpkins, squash, excess garden produce, milk and whey from our dairy goats.
Our finished hogs weigh between 225 and 250 pounds live weight which will typically be about 180 pounds hanging weight (cleaned carcass) for a whole hog order. You will be charged at time of delivery or pickup by Foxfire Farm for the hanging weight of your whole or half hog order.
Conrath Quality Meats (formally Northstar Bison) is our preferred processor. We have been satisfied with the services they offer. They are professional, USDA inspected, and offer nitrate-free curing. The processing, smoking, and packaging of the meat is properly done and you will not be disappointed. Conrath Quality Meats will contact you directly for your custom processing instructions and processing payment once your hog is brought in. Feel free to ask them any questions regarding your order. They will gladly explain all your cutting options.
Deposits will be $50.00 for a half hog and $100.00 for a whole hog. Once your deposit is received you will be contacted and a hog will be reserved for you.
