Many Hands Organic Farm Pork

Many Hands Organic Farm is proud to be one of the very few certified organic pork producers in Massachusetts. We buy our Tamworth piglets from Misty Brook Farm in Albion, ME. We are raising 6 pigs this year so pork quantities will be limited. They will be slaughtered at Adams Farm, a USDA and organically certified processing facility in Athol, MA.  The pork will be ready for customers in late fall. We sell our pork by the pound. All non-smoked cuts are $14/lb.

Processing

Cured cuts, such as bacon and ham, are processed at Vermont Packing House in Springfield, VT. There they use a natural cure of celery juice, sea salt and maple syrup to age and flavor the pork before smoking it. Ham and bacon will be available in late December at $20/lb.

Lard- Frozen (Sold Out)

Sorry, we are sold out of our 2022 lard. You can pre-order lard from the 2023 pigs which will be ready in late December 2023.

We make our certified organic lard with the fat back and leaf lard from our pigs. We render it on our wood cook stove and freeze it in quart containers. We generally have lard available most of the year, but prefer not to ship in summer. Contact us for availability.

Lard costs $20.00/quart. We sell it locally and also ship frozen lard in plastic quart containers, packed in insulated boxes sized to contain 1 to 4 quarts.

Shipping costs for lard orders: We charge $5.00 for the box and shipping supplies plus the actual USPS priority mail shipping fees. It is most economical to order lard in quantities of 4 quarts. Julie will bill you for shipping separately once your order is packaged.

Price Increases

Since COVID, prices for supplies, feed, animals and slaughter have gone up significantly each year. Using organic pig stock and grain is an environmental and human health choice that requires us to keep raising prices in order to make a very modest profit on our animal products.
