Pork Chops — 10 pounds for 17% off

$99.00
Price: $99.00

Naturally pasture raised heritage pork chops, available direct from our local family farmCertified organic pork from Whispering MeadowsStock up on our certified organic pork chops and save 17% with a bulk pack — 10 pounds of pork chops (about 20 chops) for only $107.49, a savings of $22.00.  We think you’ll love the exceptional flavour and tenderness.  The meat is rich and juicy, and will make a worthy centrepiece to any meal.

These pork chops are cut from the loin of our heritage pasture-raised Tamworth hogs, which are naturally-raised without antibiotics or synthetic hormones, on free-range pasture with organically-grown feed.

We give you the choice of keeping the rib bone on your pork chops, or having it removed.  The bone imparts extra flavour, and moderates the heat from cooking, so it is the favourite of many professional chefs.  Boneless pork chops are the more common choice, and make a quick and easy cooking option.

Which option you choose comes down to personal preference and how you intend to use it.  Because there is slightly less meat per package on the bone-in option, we give you a small discount from boneless.

10 pounds of pork chops, two chops per package.

Organic Suckling Pig — $95 deposit

$95.00
Price: $95.00

Naturally pasture raised suckling pig, fed on organic feeds from our local family farmCertified organic suckling pig from Whispering MeadowsFor a large gathering, there’s no other dining centrepiece more lavish and eyecatching than a suckling pig.  And it’s not just a feast for the eyes — the rich aromas of roasting pork that fill the air will make mouths water for miles around.

This is a special order, so please allow up to three weeks for us to get it to you.  Your suckling pig will come dressed, gutted, and ready to roast, and will weigh approximately 100 lbs (45.4 kg).

A suckling pig should be roasted low and slow, using a probe thermometer to periodically check the internal temperature all through the meat.  We highly recommend a reverse sear, roasting at 160°F (70°C) for around 10 hours, until the meat reaches 140°F (60°C) at its deepest point.  This should be followed by a rest at room temperature for at least 20 minutes.  Then a final sear at very high temperature to crisp the skin before presentation.

To order your suckling pig, just put down a $95 deposit now, and we’ll be in touch to arrange your delivery date.  Your balance will be due at the time of delivery, based on the actual weight of your pig, at $4.65/lb dressed weight, minus deposit paid.  The average final balance is around $370.

Pork Butt Roast

$34.95
Price: $34.95

Certified organic, naturally pasture raised heritage pork butt roast, available from our local family farmCertified organic pork from Whispering MeadowsThe pork butt roast, despite the name, comes from the shoulder of the hog, above the shoulder blade.  It is a well marbled roast, but with somewhat less tender meat, since it comes from one of the harder-working muscle groups of the pig.  When cooked low and slow, the tougher collagen connective tissues break down into gelatin, resulting in a succulent, falling-apart, melt-in-your-mouth meat.

The fat content of pork butt makes it well suited to any kind of slow cooking — smoking, braising, slow-roasting, Instant Pot, or slow cooker.  With a long cooking time at a low temperature, you’ll get a very tender meat that you can enjoy as-is, or use for any recipe that calls for pulled pork.

This is a bone-in pork butt roast, cut from our certified organic, pasture-raised heritage pork.  Nothing else added.  Order your butt roast direct from the farm, and we’ll deliver it frozen right to your door.  Approximately 3.5 pounds (1.59kg) each.

Pork Shoulder Roast

$31.95
Price: $31.95

Certified organic, naturally pasture raised heritage pork butt roast, available from our local family farmCertified organic pork from Whispering MeadowsThe pork shoulder roast – also known as a picnic roast – comes from the shoulder of the hog, below the shoulder blade.  It is best cooked low and slow, especially with reverse sear methods that give it a crispy outside with a tender interior.

The shoulder roast is a great choice when you want a firmer meat that can give you pork strips, for recipes like ramen, tacos, or pozole (a delicious Mexican hominy & pork stew).

This is a bone-in pork shoulder roast, cut from our certified organic, pasture-raised heritage pork.  Nothing else added.  Order your shoulder roast direct from the farm, and we’ll deliver it frozen right to your door.  Approximately 3.5 pounds (1.59kg) each.

Pork Tenderloin

$29.95
Price: $29.95

Naturally pasture raised, certified organic heritage pork tenderloinCertified organic pork tenderloin from Whispering MeadowsOur organic whole pork tenderloin will let you wow your dinner guests with a memorable gourmet meal, at a very reasonable price point.

Tenderloin is the most tender cut of pork in the entire hog.  At the same time, it is very delicately flavoured, and benefits from marinating in an umami-rich blend:  we suggest a mix of salt, fresh-ground pepper, tamari, minced fresh garlic, and crushed anchovies, applied the night before serving.  Then use the reverse sear method to get the perfect interior doneness throughout, and a richly toasted exterior crust.

Our heritage hogs are organically grown without antibiotics or synthetic hormones, free-range on organic pastures.  They live a stress-free life, with no cages or crowding.  We believe that the extra time and care we take to raise our hogs results in the best pork tenderloin you can find anywhere.

Order your whole pork tenderloin direct from the farm, and we’ll deliver it right to your door.  Approximately 1.5 pounds (680g) each.

Pasture Raised Pork

$25.00
Price: $25.00

Naturally pasture raised heritage pork, available by the quarter hog direct from our local family farmCertified organic pork from Whispering MeadowsOur certified organic, pasture-raised hogs are a heritage variety known as Tamworth, which is one of the oldest pig breeds and is closely related to wild boar.  Many people consider it to have the most flavour of any pork variety.

We raise them free-range on organic pastures, with the same care and kindness we lavish on all of our animals, and with zero antibiotics, steroids, or synthetic hormones.  The meat is processed by hand at a regulated, government inspected and family-owned local butcher shop.

You can choose a whole, half or quarter hog — they are priced at $5.60 per pound, dressed weight, for a quarter hog.  And you can order in larger quantities for a discounted price.

  • Quarter hog estimated dressed weight: 55 lbs.  $5.60/lb.
     
  • Half hog estimated dressed weight: 110 lbs.  $5.25/lb – save 6.3%.
     
  • Whole hog estimated dressed weight: 220 lbs.  $4.95/lb – save 11.6%.

Whispering Meadows local natural pasture-raised pork chopsDressed weight means the weight of the entire side when it is initially hung — before dry-aging and butchering.  This is the industry-standard method of pricing sides of meat.

The total weight of your pork cuts will be approximately 65% of the dressed weight, after butchering into individual cuts and removal of unnecessary bone and fat.  That means your final pork cuts work out to an average of $8.62/lb, or $1.90/100g, if you order a quarter hog.

Half-hog orders work out to around $8.08/lb ($1.78/100g), and whole hogs about $7.62/lb ($1.68/100g).

Shipping is free to Southern Ontario for orders that contain a whole hog.

Although each order differs a little in overall weight, the average quarter hog gives you between 35 and 40 pounds of pork.  The meat ships to you frozen in a convenient 12”×12”×12” box.  One quarter hog fills about 1/4 of an average fridge freezer.

Price: $7.50

Naturally pasture raised, certified organic heritage pork pig's trottersCertified organic pork pig's trotters from Whispering MeadowsPig’s trotters, also known as pettitoes, are often used to make soup stocks and sauces, as they have great flavour and are very high in gelatin and collagen.  They are also served whole in a number of traditional recipes from around the world.

Regardless of how you plan to use your pig’s trotters, you will need to braise them slowly at low temperature for a number of hours, until the meat is falling off the bone.  At that point, they can be served in a number of ways, including being pickled in brine.  Or for a rich stock, you can continue to simmer them for up to 24 hours.

Our organic pig’s trotters are butchered from our certified organic hogs — grown without antibiotics or synthetic hormones, free-range on organic pastures.  They live a stress-free life, with no cages or crowding.  We believe that the extra time and care we take to raise our hogs results in the best trotters you can find anywhere.

Naturally pasture raised, certified organic heritage pork tailCertified organic pork tail from Whispering MeadowsPork tail (or pig tail) can be smoked, fried, or roasted in barbeque sauce.  In The Whole Beast: Nose to Tail Eating, chef Fergus Henderson says: “On other pages, I have sung the praises of how the pig’s snout and belly both have that special lip-sticking quality of fat and flesh merging, but this occurs in no part of the animal as wonderfully as on the tail.”

You can braise your pig tails with herbs and vegetables at 325°F (160°C) for around 3 hours, until the flesh is well softened.  After partially cooling the tails to let them firm up, they can be breaded and browned in butter.  Or you can cover them in your favourite barbeque sauce and oven-roast them until they are a dark mahogany colour.

1 pork tail per package, approximately 1 lb (454 g).

Pork Fat

Price: $2.50

Naturally pasture raised certified organic heritage pork fat, available direct from our local family farmCertified organic pork fat from Whispering MeadowsPork fat is traditionally rendered to make lard, a highly versatile product used for cooking, baking, pastry making, candle and soap making, and skin care products.  A number of traditions also cook pork fat directly, not to mention adding it to pâtés and sausages, especially to give leaner meats a boost.

Lard is making a comeback in home use.  Despite all of the negative press it got over the last 100 years or so, it turns out to be nowhere near as bad for our health as it was made out to be.  It has less saturated fat, less cholesterol, and more unsaturated fat than butter.  And unlike vegetable shortenings, it has zero transfat.

Because animal fats can concentrate environmental pollutants, we highly recommend using fats only from certified organic, pasture-raised animals like ours.  Pastured pork fat also has other health benefits, like over 1000 IU of Vitamin D per tablespooon.

We sell our certified organic pork fat in 1-pound packets, shipped frozen to your door.
