Took a loooooooooong round trip to Liberty, KY to pick up our processed pork and deliver 1/2 to a friend. We put some serious miles on the car, but it was worth it.
The live weight of our first hog was a bit less than I had hoped for, coming in at 223 lbs, but I’m still thrilled with how the meat turned out.
Check out 1/2 of the sausage:
And this is 1/2 of the other cuts (not including Bacon)
I didn’t take a photo of the bacon, however we got back 7 nice packages of generously sliced bacon. We ate an entire pack this morning. It did not stay around long enough to pose for a photo. Yum!
We will process the 2nd hog in about another month… so… we should get this same amount of meat back AGAIN.
Yippie!!!!! It’s thrilling when the farm work really starts to pay off.
