Spring Lake Farms -- half & whole pigs - Amplifying Information

From: Jeanne D.
Sent on: Thursday, November 17, 2011 12:18 PM



I spoke with the farmer's today and have answered most of your questions.


1.  There are currently 3 pigs available for sale as half or whole animals.  Their hanging weights are: 179, 195 & 205 lbs.  Typically finished weight is 70-90% of hanging weight.  My best guess is 75-80% yield.


2.  Fees are as follows:  $2.75/lb hanging weight for your meat (half or whole),  slaughter fee is $45 per animal (so if you get a half -- your fee will be half that), Cutting fee is $.80/lb for a whole $.85/lb for a half animal hanging weight;  smoking, linking, & sausage fee is $1/lb, Slicing fee is $.50/lb.

3.   Your pig will be delivered to you (assuming you live in NYC) on Saturday December 10th.  Since you are ordering such a large quantity, the farmer's will deliver directly to your doorstep.

4.  Butchering choices: 

  •  Loin: Pork chops or Loin Roast, Pork chops or Rib Roast - specify thickness of chops and size of roast
  •   Belly:  Sliced bacon or whole belly, smoked or fresh
  • Shoulder Picnic:  Shoulder Roast or steaks, Specify thickness of steaks or size of roast
  •   Boston Butt:  Steaks or roast, Specify thickness of steaks or size of roast
  • Hams:  sliced, steaks, or ham -- specify size of ham's, fresh or smoked
  • Ribs -  Racks, specify cut size, (ie half or whole)
  • Ground or sausage - choices are breakfast, sweet italian, hot italian, andouille, chorizo plus others.
  • You can also decide to have any extra cuts go to ground or sausage *(hams can go to sausage or ground). 


5  The pigs are set to be slaughtered and cut on Monday and Tuesday.  If you would like to purchase a half or whole pig, please let me know your butchering preferences by Sunday evening so I can get them to the farmer's by first thing Monday morning. I will need advance payment to ensure I can pay the farmer's in advance.


Please email me:  [address removed] with any questions.  I will get back to you ASAP.

The farmers will be out of touch over the weekend -- so I will do my best to answer all your questions.
