First you contact us to let us know what you are interested in. We will then schedule in your order (Keep in mind we have hogs available year round, but cattle only in late summer into fall.)
On the appointment date, we will deliver your hog or cow to the the Locker Plant. There it will be processed according to your specifications. In a couple of weeks your smoked pork chops, sausage, etc. or T-bone steaks, roasts and hamburger, etc. will be ready for pick-up.
Cattle will become available starting in the summer until late fall. Hogs are available year round.
First of all the hog we deliver should weigh in around 250 lbs. Based on that assumption, you can expect to get about 140 lbs of frozen pork products from a whole hog. These cuts would include the following* : Ham, Loin Roasts or chops, Bacon, Spareribs, Shoulder Butt Roasts, Shoulder picnic, sausage or pork burgers, and lard. Here is an example of how we had a hog processed. It was a 257 lb. hog

HOGS: We will try to deliver a hog that is between 250-300 lbs. As of 9/24/2022 the market price of hogs has been changing quickly. As of 9/24/2022 the market price is $.90/lb. live weight. We will add $50 to the market price on the day we take the hog to the processing facility. So for example, a 280 lb. hog would cost $302 for the live animal. The processing fees at the locker plant vary according to how your pork is prepared. Generally, it should be around $300. So you can expect the total cost of the hog, including processing to be about $602. You would pay us for the live animal and the locker for the processing fees.
We have pork appointments at the Sugar Rock Farms meat processing throughout the year.

BEEF: We are unsure of what cattle prices will do by the time they are ready. At this time we are anticipating the live weight price to be $1.50/lb. Price of half of a 1300 lb. steer would be $975 plus processing. The processing fees depend on how you have your meat cut but should be around $350-400 for a half. So the total cost of the half at $1375*. We accept payments made by cash or check for the live animal. You will need to pay the Locker Plant for the butcher cuts.
Our next beef appointment are for August of 2023 at Sugar Rock Farms meat processing in Westport IN

All of these cuts are locally processed at a state inspected facility
