Wild Plum Farm offers pork shares in whole or half pig portions. These are available throughout the year, depending on size and quantity desired.
WILD PLUM FARM is now taking reservations for pork shares.
Tamworth pigs are raised on the pastures of Wild Plum Farm. In addition to grass, barley fodder and alfalfa hay, they are fed spent brewer’s barley, cracked Emmer wheat, excess dairy milk, the occasional bakery treat and loads of fall apples and pears. They are free of hormones and antibiotics. Tamworth is a heritage pig known for its long, lean confirmation and tasty red finish meat. Read more about lard vs. bacon pigs at Sugar Mtn. Farm.
Due to their diet, these pigs take a bit longer than grain fed animals to reach butcher weight. We take deposits throughout the year, on a first come first served basis, and will contact you as soon as your pig is ready for freezer camp.

How about more sausage? Consider fewer classic cuts and instead use those portions for additional sausage.
