The most economical way to stock a freezer with the farm-fresh goodness of pork 

When you order a whole pasture-raised hog, you will receive a diverse selection of about 50 pasture-raised pork cuts from bacon to succulent roasts to tender chops. Each embodying the exceptional flavor and the quality our farm is known for providing.

How pricing works:

When you order a half hog, you will receive a discounted base price of $3.49 / lb hanging weight for the half hog. Hanging weight is typically between 85 and 90 lbs. 

Butcher fees are then added. Those fees typically run around $135-160 for the half pig. It varies depending on the amount of sausage and cured items (such as bacon and ham) produced. 

For a half hog that weighs 88 lbs hanging, the total cost would be about $459, which is a $162.25 savings off the regular retail price. And you should get around 55 lbs of meat back. 

Cards will be charged once your cuts are confirmed, and your final weight is calculated.

How your cuts are determined:

Following your order, we will communicate further instructions by email to help you determine how you would like your hog butchered.

We will then take your custom-cut instructions by phone. While some farms have you, the customer, talk directly to the butcher, we don't. Too often, there is miscommunication between a customer and the butcher which leads to disappointment in the final cuts received. 

Since we know the butcher's process and we speak with our customers, we want to be sure your cut order is exactly what you want to receive. 

What cuts can you expect from a half hog:

If you're wondering what you'll actually get with the purchase of a whole hog, here's what a basic cut order may look like:

Bacon (about 6 lbs — a $83.94 value): Crafted from carefully selected cuts and expertly cured, our sliced bacon and bacon ends deliver a smoky, savory delight that will elevate your breakfast or add a burst of flavor to your favorite dishes.

Sausages (about 8 lbs — a $91.92 value): Made from the finest cuts and thoughtfully blended with herbs and spices, our sausages offer a range of mouthwatering flavors. From classic breakfast links to juicy bratwurst, each bite is a testament to the craftsmanship and care we put into raising these hogs.

Deli-Sliced Ham (about 5 lbs — a $59.75 value): Dark, delicious and satisfyingly smoky. Keep some on hand in the fridge all year long. And you’ll never have to eat a boring sandwich again.

Pork Chops (about 17 chops — a $131.89 value): Cut from the loin and ribs, these pasture-raised pork chops are the epitome of premium quality and exceptional flavor. And each chop features delicate marbling and a rich, natural taste. 

Spare Ribs (about 1.5 lbs — a $11.85 value): These meaty spare ribs are sure to satisfy your cravings. Perfect for everything from backyard barbecues to family gatherings.

Shoulder Roasts (2 roasts — a $75.56 value): Bursting with flavor and marbled to perfection, the boneless shoulder and picnic shoulder roasts promise a succulent and tender eating experience. Slow-cook them to unlock the full potential. And create pulled pork sandwiches or an impressive centerpiece roast.

Ham (1 small hams — a $73.40 value): Embrace the tradition of a perfectly cooked ham with our pasture-raised hog cuts. Whether glazed, roasted, or slow-cooked, our ham will be the star of your holiday table or any special occasion.

Shoulder Steaks (about 2 steaks — a $19.98 value): With its rich marbling, these are great cuts for grilling. And produce a meaty, moist and juicy steak that is as delicious as slow-cooked pork shoulder.

Ham Hocks (2 hocks — a $27.96 value): The perfect addition to soups, stocks and stews, these ham hocks can also be served as a main meal.

Snack Sticks (2 lbs — a $35.80 value): The perfect on-the-go or lunchbox snack.

The best part? You can change this up. The most common edit to these options is turning the ham into sausage. Doing so gives you an extra 10 lbs of sausage, which family’s often cook and use more than hams. 

Or have some cuts made into ground pork. Replace bone-in loin chops with a pork tenderloin and boneless chops. And replace rib chops with baby back ribs and boneless chops. 

We’ll work with you to determine the best balance of cuts based on your favorites.

And if you are a fan of organ meats, you can easily add the pork liver to the order.

How delivery and pickup works:

During checkout, you may update your preferred delivery to either Pickup at Sparrow Hill Farm (or the Dane County Farmers Market) or Home delivery. 

Pickup is free and the option we recommend for customers who live within driving distance of the farm in Monroe, WI or the Dane County Farmers Market.

Home Delivery is $90 to help offset the cost of shipping an order of that size and weight. If you live further away from the pickup locations, this may be your preferred option.

You will need about 1.5 cubic feet of freezer space to store the cuts and take advantage of this deal. Or, go in with friends, and divide your favorite cuts among multiple freezers.

More than a great deal on meat

When you choose to order a Whole Pasture-Raised Hog, you're doing more than getting a great deal on approximately 55 lbs of meat. You also support sustainable and responsible farming practices. 

Sparrow Hill Farm hogs roam freely on lush pastures, enjoying a natural diet and a stress-free environment. We prioritize their well-being and ensure that each hog lives a healthy and happy life, resulting in meat that is unmatched in taste, tenderness, and ethical standards.
