This little piggy...

Went to the freezer :-) 
Today we picked up a pig we had processed at a "mom and pop" meat processor. We didnt raise the pig - this time - but bought it from a local farmer. If you've never had farm fresh pork, you're missing out! 
This is the third time we've purchased a live pig for processing, and havent purchased any kind of pork product at the grocery store in nearly three years. I love that we know where our meat is coming from, that it's not loaded with hormones and who knows what else. I also love the money we save. 
We had the pig processed into a variety of the following: chops, steaks, ham slices, whole ham, bacon {mmmmm, bacon}, sausage, roasts and ribs. Broken down we paid $2.58/lb. You can't beat that price. This should be the last pig we purchase though because hubby plans on raising our own pigs this spring. Stay tuned for more details on that hobby farming adventure!
