2018 Pork Shares Available for Pre-Order


We sell our pork as whole and half shares. We price our pork shares at $3.50 per pound (hanging weight) plus butchering fees, which cost around $150 per half share. Typical half-share hanging weight is around 100–115 lbs. This means a 105-lb half share will cost approximately $515.

In order to sell pork in the state of Wisconsin, it must be butchered at a USDA-inspected facility. Your pork share will be butchered and available for pick-up from Geiss Meats in Merrill, Wisconsin in mid-November. Local delivery will be available on a limited basis for an additional fee.

Please contact us (orangedogfarmWI[@]gmail.com) to reserve your pasture-raised pork share. Each share requires a $150 deposit.

What comes in my box?

Following is an example of the types of cuts and quantities you should expect from your half-share. We aim for a hanging weight of at least 100 lbs per half-share. Our butcher will guide you through selecting your cuts, trim options (e.g., brats, bacon, ground pork, breakfast sausages, etc.) and their packaging. We can also make arrangements post-processing if you would prefer to butcher your half-share yourself.
