Pork shares are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Deposits accepted in January 2021, and processing will occur in June of 2021.
Here at Three Goats Farm, we believe our food should be clean, and all life should be respected. All of our livestock are treated to the best of life we can offer: open spaces to roam, daily fresh produce, and attention from all of our community members. Our pigs are fed a diet of mostly pasture supplemented with Purina Sow and Pig feed pellets, alfalfa, windfall apples in the fall, kitchen scraps, and any of the farm produce that does not get sold, used, or donated.
We understand the problematic nature of industrial farming; by offering these shares, we hope to offer our community affordable alternatives in order to keep families fed and our environment better protected. As we like to say, on a good farm, the animals only have one bad day, and we do our best to enrich their lives while we are their caretakers.
Whole and half pigs can be reserved with a $100 non-refundable deposit for our next processing date. This deposit secures your share, and supports our farm in raising your share to size. The $100 will go towards the final price of the pork once it is weighed. We raise a KuneKune mixed breed, and you can expect the dressed weight of our pork to be 80lbs to 110lbs for a whole pig. The current market price is $7.00/lb. Additionally, share owners will be responsible for paying the butcher costs directly to the butcher when they pick up their cuts. We will start taking deposits for the pork shares in January 2021, once we have lined up a butcher and posted final pricing.
Our butcher dates for 2021 will be in June, and you will be updated via email once we set the exact dates with the butcher. The share owners will pick up the cuts directly from the butcher. If you are interested in a pork share, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can gauge interest and try to coordinate a butcher location that works best for the share owners.
