The Falls Farm originally started with cows but is now providing customers with fresh, local, delicious pork. Our pigs are pasture raised and hormone and antibiotic free. We currently raise 2 sows and 1 boar and plan to have 2 breeding seasons per year. The Falls Farm is currently marketing 17 pigs for harvest in late November/early December. These pigs will be sold mostly as half and whole orders but we will have a decent amount of individually packaged meat for sale also. Fresh sausage, bacon, ham, or pork chops are perfect to serve during the holidays.
All the information you need to place a half or whole pig order is below. Click on the link below for a printable copy of the order form. About half of our pigs are already sold so make sure to secure your order soon!
If you are interested in purchasing sausage now we will have some available starting 10/18/15. The cost is $4.00/lb. You can pick it up at the farm or we can deliver. The Falls Farm has received many compliments from previous customers so don’t miss out on this opportunity to purchase fresh, locally raised pork.
Please contact us if you have any questions; we understand this process may be a new experience for you and we’d love to walk you through it.
Pasture Raised Pork Info and Order Form
Here’s How This Works:
The Falls Farm wants you, our customer, to have a great experience from start to finish with your custom pork order. That means that we plan on giving you all the information you need up front to ensure your happiness with our product.
We currently raise 2 sows and 1 boar for breeding purposes. The pigs you will be enjoying were born and raised on The Falls Farm. Our pigs are pasture raised and are not given any growth hormones or antibiotics. We take great pride in the care these pigs receive during their time on our farm.
Harvesting of Pigs:
Our goal is to harvest your pig when it reaches 250lbs. We expect your pig to reach this weight at the end of November or first of December. By harvesting your pig at 250lbs we can guarantee a tender and flavorful product. A 250lb pig will weigh approximately 180lbs after being dressed and will provide 140lbs of meat (cut preferences can slightly alter these numbers). Please keep in mind that if you are planning to order a half of a pig you will only receive around 70lbs of meat (half of the 140lbs).
*If you would like a smaller or larger pig than our standard 250lbs please let us know ASAP and we will do our very best to accommodate that request. This may mean your pig will be processed earlier or later than the rest.
What is My Cost?:
The Falls Farm charges our customers $3.00/lb on the hanging weight of the pig (we give a $0.25/lb discount on whole pig orders). The customer is also responsible for paying the processor’s fee of $0.50/lb on the harvested weight. The Falls Farm will cover the $40.00 slaughter fee for the customer.
*Cured items cost an additional $1.50/lb and will be ready 3-6 weeks after original processing.
Please see attached page for an example breakdown of cost.
How do I Place an Order?:
The following page is your custom order form. Please do not hesitate to ask us any questions you might have about cuts, prices, etc. We do require a $50 deposit at the time of your order. This will guarantee your order be filled and will help us cover the cost of feed before the harvest of your pig.
Thank you and happy ordering!
