Fill your freezer and eat well all year

Have you ever wanted to buy a whole pig?

There’s nothing like the comfort of knowing you have just put a whole pig in the freezer.  Buying a whole pig is about getting the best quality free range pork for the best price possible and best of all, you cut out the middleman by buying direct from the farmer.

When you buy a whole pig from us we take care of all the logistics for you. All you need to do is tell us whether you’d like a spit pig (whole) or how you would like your pork cut up. Your pork can be bagged and boxed ready for you to fill your freezer.

Whole pigs are priced at $16.50 per kilo hanging weight*. This is a flat rate per kilo to process, transport and butcher a whole pig into fresh and cured pork cuts.

Eat Well, Live Long

At the time of ordering a whole pig, we take a $200 deposit to secure your pig. Once the pig has been processed we will send an invoice to your nominated email address with the balance owing. The balance must be paid prior to collecting your pork.

A whole pig will usually weigh 50 to 60kg hanging weight (occasionally more), with a final cost to you of around $650. Hanging weights will always vary, as we are producing pigs under natural growing conditions.

You will receive approximately 40 kg of dressed pork from a whole pig. That means the free range pork going into your freezer will average out to be as little as $16.50 per kilo.

*We charge by the hanging weight, which is the whole carcass after butchering. This is the simplest way to calculate the final cost for you the customer. You can take as much of that whole pig as you want – you’re buying the whole pig, nose to tail!

The butcher will usually butcher your pig within four days. Note: we  not currently providing cured hams, salamis or bacon

Final payment to us for the balance of your whole pig is required prior to pick-up from the butcher. Your pork will be bulk packed in butcher bags, so make sure to have some freezer bags on hand to portion up your cuts as required.

Curing/Ham/Bacon We do not currently cure your cuts. Commercial smokers are large and expensive. Smoking meat also requires an additional food safety program, as it involves heating/cooking of meat. 

You can always cure and smoke your own bacon and ham – it’s easier than you think! Just select one of the larger cuts (ie: whole belly bone out for streaky bacon) then visit your local butcher supply shop for everything you need. If you don’t have a butcher supply shop close by, try Bunnings or Barbeques Galore. If you have a BBQ with a lid, you can smoke meat.
