What do I get when I buy a pig from Miles?
Each half or whole pig contains the same cuts of meat. You will receive pork chops, pork steaks, pork roasts, pork ribs, pork sausage, old-fashion cured/smoked bacon, and old-fashion cured/smoked ham. If you wish, you will also receive the lard from your pig. The meat will be cut and packaged to your specification. This includes such things as the thickness of pork chops, the size of roasts, how much of the meat is cured/smoked, and whether the sausage is made into links, patties, or bulk packages.
A whole hog (approximately 300 pounds live weight), will yield about 160-170 pounds of wrapped meat. A half hog will yield approximately 80-85 pounds of wrapped meat. Your purchase price is based on the live weight of the hog. This cost will vary depending on the weight of the live hog and the market conditions at the time of your purchase. You can expect to pay approximately 50-60 cents per pound of live weight. You also pay for the processing. The cost of processing varies depending on your specifications.
