All About Pork Shares

Updated: Aug 3, 2023

Have you ever heard about buying in bulk? Do you have friends or family members that already participate in meat bulk buying but you never felt comfortable too? Well, let’s break it down a bit so that you might not be so intimidated to buy in bulk.


In 2017, it was estimated that the average adult in the US consumes 274 pounds of meat per year. That adds up to a lot of meat, especially if you have a partner and family! So if we think about it, buying in bulk could work for nearly every household. Currently, our family is offering ½ and whole pork shares to be butchered in August. A whole butcher hog will typically yield between 160-180 pounds of meat. From the share, you will get a variety of pork products cut specifically to your specifications. Those cuts will include pork chops (bone-in or boneless), bacon, sausage (ground, linked, or pattied), ribs, ham, pork cutlets, etc.


There are a lot of positives about buying meat products in bulk.

  1. Ease of meal planning because you have access to all cuts in a freezer at your home.

  2. Every cut is packed and cut as you and your family prefer.

  3. Buying in bulk is cheaper per pound than buying our cuts individually and the most expensive cuts are the same price as the least.

  4. There is a variety of cuts in your freezer so meal variety is easier to obtain.


There may be some hesitations in purchasing meat products in bulk.

  1. The upfront cost of buying all the meat at once.

  2. Freezer space is needed to house the meat for the year.


These hesitations are valid and we understand that the upfront costs to make this purchase are higher, so this is something to discuss with your families.


The pricing for our shares includes all the costs associated with the raising and processing of the pork. Some supplier shares are sold based on the animal’s live weight (260-300 lbs) plus a processing/butchering fee. Our price is based on the total pounds of meat you will receive from the share and includes all of the processing so there is one simple price.


Regardless, we believe in our product but suggest that you try it before making the decision to buy a share. We will be happy to answer any questions you have about the process of buying shares and aim to make the purchasing process as easy as possible. Included at the bottom are our pork share cut descriptions and prices. Reference this and if you have any questions just let us know.
