I get it...you know, the frustration. You're starting to notice a difference in yourself and your family - the way they feel - their energy and strong immune system. So now your ready to start buying some of the foods that are bringing about that change, in bulk.
But, then comes the frustrating part...Where do I start? How much freezer space will I need? What cuts of meat should I get?
Well, we understand that feeling and after getting some of these very questions, we decided to make a video for you that shows just what you can anticipate from a half hog. Of coarse, it can be slightly different depending on what cuts you choose. We provide you with a cut list and the butcher will take you through each section step by step, answering any questions you may have.
Notes: Live weight of whole hog -250 lbs. 90 lbs. hanging weight on each half. 65 lbs yield weight on each half.
