Raising Pigs on the Farm in Cape Elizabeth!!

Half Pig Shares

We do our own cut sheets for our pigs, allowing for a greater variety of cuts of meat, our shares typically included; Center Cut Pork Chops * Country Style Spare Ribs * Spareribs * Ground Pork * Breakfast Sausage * Sweet Italian Sausage * Rib Roast * Rib Chops * Sirloin or Blade Roast * Smoked Shoulder * Smoked Butt * Bacon * Ham Steak

 Price:  Hang Weight X  $$$ lb + processing and handling fee from the butcher = Total Due. 

                                          2022 - 132lbs  x $4.75 + $182 = $809.00


The pigs enjoy all the same fruits and vegetables for breakfast and dinner, that we sell in the store. By raising pigs we have far less food waste on the farm, as day old lettuce, and scraps and spoiled or bruised tomatoes are their favorites. Their diet is supplemented with a little grain about twice a week, to make sure their protein intake is correct.             


Bennett continues to grow like  a weed on the farm, and enjoys caring for his pigs year after year. In 2022, he welcomed Sunshine, Cloudy, Lightning, Tornado, and Thunder. New Farmer Steven fell in love with the animals of farm life, and has taken over their daily care. (Photo Above)


2021, we took on raising four pigs, they finally warmed up to Bennett after a few weeks, and loved their daily visits from Steven. (Photo Above)
