Butcher Hogs

Offer your family and friends quality Berkshire pork that is antibiotic free and naturally raised.  Hogs processed locally at The Meathouse or at a butcher of your choice.

With a market weight of 270 lbs and average 63% yield, without the skin and head, the typical whole hog will produce a 170 lb carcass.  This will yield approximately 145-155 lbs of meat total (this may increase or decrease depending on your butchering choices). 

Weights on hogs will fluctuate.  We aim for live weights between 270-290 lbs.  At $3/lb "hanging weight" a whole hog, processing included, will average $510-550.  If you have a number in mind you're looking to spend let us know and we'll pick out the appropriate sized hog to suit your needs.

Example: a 270 lb live weight hog will average 63% hanging carcass weight of 170 lbs.  170 lb hanging weight x 3= $510
