We're taking deposits now for half hogs available throughout the mid-late summer and fall. Pick up is at Revel Meat Company in Canby, Oregon.
Your cost will be $4.50/pound for a half hog, plus butcher fees. Final cost will be determined by the dressed weight of the animal before it is cut and wrapped. A half hog will typically weigh around 100 pounds "on the hook," and yield 60-70 pounds of wrapped meat, ready for cooking. The weight lost is moisture and excess fat, skin, and bones.
Butcher fees will vary based on your preferences, but a typical butcher bill will be around $125 per half. This includes slaughter, meat cutting, smoking, curing and packaging.
Total costs: $450 (half hog animal cost, payable to Campfire Farms) + $125 (butcher cost, payable to butcher) = $575 total for one half hog

If you aren't ready for the half hog, we offer an easy bulk box option: the Box o' Pork. It's about 25 pounds of sausage and roasts and costs an even $200 all cut and wrapped and ready to go. This is 10% off our retail prices at market.
Exact amounts will vary based on availability, but a typical box includes:
5 lbs pork chops
7 lbs sausage (bratwurst, breakfast, etc.)
4 lbs ground pork
9 lbs shoulder roasts
It's a great way to stock up the freezer without having to buy a new one for the garage! This will typically fit in about one cubic foot of space.
