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 reservations for pork shares
Tamworth pigs are raised on the pastures of Wild Plum Farm. In addition to a diverse pasture forage, the pigs are fed non-gmo barley fodder and rich alfalfa and oat hay, along with free choice apples. Free of hormones and antibiotics...full of goodness. 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.
We receive deposits throughout the year, and fill orders on a first come first served basis. Once on our reservation list, you’ll be contacted as soon as your pig is ready for Freezer Camp. We will work with you to determine your cut & wrap instructions.

25lb. minimum orders (can mix and match spice options to reach minimum). $5/lb.
*Unless you wish to butcher your pig we will deliver your pig to a local butcher for processing. We work closely with our butchers to manage the delivery and pick-up of your pork. Humane slaughter, scald and scrape are done on farm.
