buying in bulk
The PTB Farm Fall Meat Sale is an opportunity for you to buy the highest quality meat at the best price while filling up your freezer and supporting our farm!
Buying in bulk means you get all the cuts -- "higher dollar" cuts like pork chops or filet, as well as "lower dollar" cuts like sausage, ground beef, or oxtail -- at the same price. In fact, you will get a whole, half-, or quarter-animal raised in the best possible environment, slaughtered in a humane-handling facility, and cut and wrapped to your specifications. Buying in bulk gives you the opportunity to experiment with new cuts and enjoy the whole beast in new and exciting ways.
The quality of our meat is consistent and excellent from the shank to the loin. If you have not experienced curing a pork belly on your own, cooking spare ribs or figuring out what to do with a shank; then what are you waiting for?
While buying in bulk may start as a wonderful adventure for the first-time purchaser, it will likely become a yearly tradition that is anticipated and enjoyed by friends and family. Buying in bulk allows you to receive an array of fine cuts at a reasonable price. While every animal produces a slightly different amount of meat, you can expect approximately 60 lbs of meat from a half hog, and 150 lbs from a quarter beef. We calculate the exact amount after your meat has been cut and wrapped to your specifications -- you only pay for the actual amount of meat you receive. You can fit a typical half hog into a mostly empty split fridge/freezer unit. We recommend that you set aside 2.5 cu/ft to safely accommodate a half hog.
