Can't get enough of our pork? Treat yourself to a whole side (half a pig). We can have our butcher cut & wrap for you, or we can ship the whole side to the butcher of your choice.
A side weighs about 40kg (90lbs) and you will end up with about 70lbs to take home including some nice marrow bones for stock, some extra fat for rendering, & organs & "odd bits" like ears, etc. About 53lbs of that will be cuts like chops, ribs, bacon, sausage etc. To learn more about all the options and different cuts of pork, please check out our blog.

A butchered side will fit in a 3 cubic foot freezer. Here is a photo of a side, cut and wrapped & ready for delivery:
Cost & Timing
There are three costs associated with a side of pork:
- The cost of the side
- Butchery fees
We charge $4.50/lb for a side so the side is usually around $405 for a 90b side. The kill fee is $50. Butchery fees vary depending on what you want done. If you just want basic "cut and wrap" is $1/lb so around $90 or $108 if you want your meat vacuum packed. If you want bacon and sausage too, that will be about another $100 (based on 6lbs of bacon and 30lbs of sausage). So for a fully butchered side including the cost of the side and the butcher fees you are looking at between about $545 and $645.
If you can pick up at our butcher in Kamloops, you won't have any other costs. Shipping to the Lower Mainland costs about $70 for a butchered side or $100 for a whole side. If we have enough deliveries, we try to do them ourselves which saves you a bit of money.
Your $100 deposit (payable here) reserves the next side we have available.
We will contact you within a few days to get your butchery instructions and will be in touch a few days before your pork is ready for pickup or delivery. The balance is due via email money transfer before your meat ships. We will send you an invoice for the total amount.
