A Whole Pig

A while back a friend of mine and I bought a whole pig and split the meat between us.

It was one of the greatest purchases of my life and sparked my love for quality pork. Not only do you get loads of ground pork but you get, ribs, pork chops, bacon, organs, fat back (to make your own lard), tenderloin, and roasts. I can easily tell the difference between a store bought pork chop and one from a superior pig, like the one we bought. The fat is the best part for me and you know it is quality fat since we never know where that meat in the super-market came from.

We paid the extra money to have it packaged and cut for us instead of buying the pig and butchering it ourselves.

Half a Pig

We bought the magnificent pig from the wonderful people at Olde World Farms and picked it up at the Urban Harvest Farmers Market

I encourage anyone who likes meat, whether beef or pork, to buy the highest quality and in bulk because per pound it becomes cheaper than any cut at whole foods.
