Life is busy and if we don't stop and plan sometimes it feels totally overwhelming. I like to plan meals for the week on Sundays. From adding things to the grocery list, to pulling meat out of the freezer to quizzing the kids on what they want to eat that week. It helps me feel more organized and ready to take on the week! Here are our top five tips for keeping your family on track!
If you have never ordered a half or whole pig it can be an intimidating undertaking and we are here to help out! Our pigs range from 200-350 lbs, so a whole pig is about 5 boxes worth of meat (and a half is about 2.5-3 boxes) Depending on how you customize your pork order will depend on how many of each cut you get, but we have included an example of a whole pig order below.
I often get asked how the business started, well to be honest I can't really remember the exact timeframe when the idea began, but I know for sure it was in the kitchen with my mom. I am one of six kids, and the oldest daughter, so naturally I got to spend time in the kitchen helping my mom keep everyone fed. On our farm we have a couple of apple trees and every fall we pick the apples. It was always great fun seeing how many we could pick, if you could reach the perfect one and occasionally rescuing a brother from climbing too high.
