Beef and Pork Sale

We are having a SALE on Beef and Pork!

Sides and quarters (beef) or whole and sides (pork). Sale on now until February 15th.

Pork Sale!!

Whole and Half Pigs!

Normally our pork is $7/lb, but we’re doing a special sale if ordered by Feb 15th

Order Now to Avoid Disappointment!

If you’ve never before tasted local, organic, heritage, pastured pork, now is your chance to fill your freezer with all sorts of delicious cuts for you and your family.However, there is a limited supply, so order now to avoid disappointment. Our pork is popular and we will sell out quickly.

The sale price is $6 per pound with an additional cost per pound for sausage and smoked meat (ham, bacon, hocks etc.). You will be charged according to the “hanging weight”.

You can expect a hanging weight of approximately 150 – 200 pounds for a whole, and75 – 100 pounds for a side.

A deposit of $400 is needed for a whole pig, and a deposit of $200 is needed for a half pig.

There are many different ways that you can cut up your half or whole. From the popular bacon, ham and sausage to the rarer cuts, we are happy to inform you of your options and walk you through the ordering process.
Our pigs are Tamworths. One of the oldest breeds in the world which originated in a town of the same name in England. They are raised the old fashioned way on a diet of local organic grains, veggies and wide-open pasture during the warmer months of the year. They are renowned for their unique flavour and hardiness, well-suited to the cold Canadian winters and for making the most scrumptious sausages and bacon. Raised with lots of TLC and the utmost attention to health and welfare. We hope you can taste the difference!

Beef Sale!!!
Sides and Quarters!!

Regular price is $7.50/lb but if you order by February 15th then you’ll receive our sale price.

Beef Quarter: $6.25/lb
Beef Half: $6/lb

A deposit of $400 is needed for a half cow, and a deposit of $200 is needed for a quarter cow.

You will be charged according to the hanging weight. You can expect the hanging weight to be between 100 and 125lb per quarter.

Our beef is 100% grass fed and finished. They spend their lives outside with access to our barn shelter and are rotated through our pastures using a rotational grazing system. We spend a lot of time with our cattle and we name each one. We really love them, and we hope you can taste this in their meat.

There are many different cuts that you can choose from. Maggie will walk you through this process.
If you have any questions at all about our pigs or cows, what exactly you can order, how you order, and what you actually get, please call Maggie at (519) 856 – 1384  OR  email us atwholecirclefarmcsa@gmail.com

A Small Share is suited for a small family, couple or a vegetable loving adult. With this year’s addition of the Medium and X-large share, there is is just that much more selection.
