Purchasing Half or Whole Hogs
Get your Customized Cuts
Advantages to ordering your hog straight from Eggleston Farms: Our animals are pasture raised, grazing off grass and walnuts adding to their meat flavor while receiving a supplemental corn feed which adds some marbling. You can customize all your cuts and you don’t have to worry about running out or price going up. Visit our Facebook and Instagram page for photos of live pigs.
A whole hog share yields approximately 216 pounds of cuts plus 9 to 10 pounds of leaf lard, 10 to 12 pounds of organs & bones and 15 to 20 pounds of back fat. You will be able to customize your cuts with either Trackside the butcher and Trish Eggleston can help also. For a half hog you need 3.5 cubic feet and for a whole hog you will need 7 cubic feet. 1 cubic foot of freezer space for every 15 pounds of pork. Average pork intake is 66# per person/year.
