Our hogs love grass, roots, and grubs and now they have access to lots of these through our rotational grazing setup at Living Roots using easily moveable electric fencing. Our current pork for sale includes: chops, tenderloin, boneless pork loin, bacon, jowl bacon, sliced ham, chorizo, bratwurst, ground pork, Italian sausage, salt and pepper sausage, sage sausage, ribs, and lard. Most Pastured Pork pigs get a non-GMO grain (the grain is still grown with chemicals), but our pigs get a Chemical-Free grain (our local supplier doesn't certify organic but the grain is just as clean), making our pork about as clean as you can get.
You can find our pork at the Bloomington Community Farmers Market year round, in our CSA, or you can order direct from our farm.

How to Order our Meat

Orders can be made ahead of time (email or phone) to pick up directly at the farm near French Lick. Please call a day or two ahead so we can have time to pack your order and schedule a pickup time. Minimum $30 order (meat, eggs, or produce).

If you order a pork bundle or other bulk amount (above 50 lbs), we can deliver to you, as long as you are in our region (see bundle page for delivery area) for a $9 delivery fee.

Buying a Whole or Half Hog

The pricing advantage to buying pork in a whole or half hog is that you get all of the cuts(including the expensive ones) for less than the price of the cheaper cuts. Another advantage of purchasing in this manner is that you get to specify the processing details (e.g. type of sausages, etc.).
