We take pride in growing healthy happy pasture raised pork. I want to clarify that when we say pasture raised pork; that does not mean 100% grass fed. While our animals eat primarily grass, and hay; we do supplement this diet with small amounts of a grain based feed ration. Pigs especially need a delicate balance of minerals in their diet to stay happy and healthy. We are able to maintain this by feeding a specialized ration on a daily basis. Feeding time also allows us an opportunity to socialize with our animals. This is extremely valuable, because we can quickly tell if an animal is not feeling well; and it allows us to keep tabs on their growth and overall well-being.

When you buy a pig for meat from Boulder Ridge Farm, the weight you buy is not the weight that will go into your freezer. This is because of the parts of the pig you cannot eat. This includes most of the internal organs, hair, and other inedible products. So if you buy a 180 pound hog, it will weigh about 130 pounds when it is hung up to cool. Then when the pig is cut into pork chops and bacon it will lose some more weight from deboning and fat trimming. So you will get approximately 105 pounds of meat to put into your freezer from a 180 pound pig. Below is a pork cut chart listing all of the different cuts of meat you can get from a pig. Please note you may not be able to get all of these cuts from the same pig. If you are interested in buying one of our pigs, please feel free to contact us using our contact form.
