PORK PROCESSING AND HARVESTING
Pork Harvesting and Processing
Typical harvest days for pigs are Monday and Tuesday; because pork is not aged, it is cut relatively quickly. The items that take the most time to process are hams and bacons, due to the curing and smoking process.
Please have your cutting instructions to us within 24 hours of harvest.

Cutting instructions are needed within 24 hours of drop off for hogs. If we do not receive your cutting instructions by this time, a standard cut will apply. Click Here to fill out our cutting instruction form.
We will gladly hold your order for one week after notification. After that time, you will begin accruing weekly storage fees. Orders not picked up within the first 7 days will be charged the following: 1/2 hog =$25.00 and Whole hog =$35.00. The storage fee will be charged each week after the first initial week. If you are unable to pick up within the first 7 days, please contact us so we can work with you.
Forms of payment accepted on processing are debit cards, checks or cash.
