Here at the Little Portion Monastery Farm we pasture-raise hogs that live happy, healthy lives. Our animals are treated respectfully, humanely and even affectionately! They are fed only natural foods without growth hormones or any other harmful, unnatural additives. This creates the best pork available in this area! See the bottom of this page for current pork prices.

PORK PRICES: The following information reflects our pork prices at the present time.
Bratwurst, sausage patties, and smoked sausage are not normally included in the "package" when someone purchases a whole or half hog. These products are not considered "normal" cuts of meat, but represent value-added products. In other words, we must pay the butcher extra costs in order to process those three products, and those costs are reflected in our prices. We have an ample supply of bratwurst, sausage patties, and smoked sausage in our freezer.
Below the "Pork Prices" are the standards currently used for calculating the composition, or cuts, that go into a half hog. If you purchase a whole hog, you will receive twice as many pounds of each cut.
