The hogs at Sunrise Farms, a Berkshire cross, are fed natural feeds without added growth hormones or antibiotics. They are not confined, have access to the outdoors, are well-bedded, and free to move about our farm. Sows use natural farrowing systems that allow them to come and go at will for birthing and nursing. There is no MSG in our sausage and no added nitrates or nitrites in our bacon or ham. Purchase the whole animal or split it with a friend and enjoy high-quality, healthy meat all year long. The average dressed weight of a whole hog is 200-250 lbs. The amount of table-ready meat after the hog is cut, wrapped, and frozen is approximately 60-75% of the dressed weight.
