City Drop Off & Sides of Pork

Posted on by Emily teBogt

Hello Everyone,

The Dartmouth drop off is set to go for a trail run January 25. If you haven't signed up yet it's not too late, send me an email or call.. For those who haven't heard: The pick up location is at The Alderney Landing parking lot in Dartmouth at 6:30 pm every other Monday. I may be there a little earlier for those who want. How does it work? - Email or call me with your order by Monday morning at 10. The product list can be found on the "Price List" page of my website or I can email you a copy. I sell cage-free eggs, pork, no spray vegetables and grass fed lamb (livestock raised without use of antibiotics). Winter veggies include potatoes, carrots, onions, kale, leeks, sweet potatoes, squash, beets, turnip, cabbage & parsnips. This is not a CSA but if you absolutely can't pick out your own groceries then I can make you a share. If you're interested then check out the "Farm to City Drop Off" page on the website and send me an email etproduce@gmail.com.


I have 18 hogs at market weight and not enough buyers. Sides of pork are $3.25/lb. which includes cutting & wrapping but smoking of ham is an extra $10 and smoking fee for bacon is $8. My butcher can also make nitrate-free bacon which costs $15.  Sides of pork are around 100 lbs. After cutting it will loose a few pounds so you aren't getting exactly 100 lbs or pork. A side of pork can fit into the freezer compartment of an upright fridge easily. Whole hogs are $2/lb. plus cutting & wrapping and weigh close to 200 lbs. (perfect for large families or restaurants/butchers).

If a side is too much for you I have pre-made boxes: The large size box is $100 and contains 6 pork chops, a package of spare ribs, a shoulder roast, a small ham or ham steak, a package of bacon, 2 packages of sausages, and 3 or 4 lbs of ground. The small size box is $50 and contains 4 pork chops, 2 lbs. of ground, 1 lb. of  bacon, 1 lb. of sausages, and a ham steak. Or you can always place an order for whatever pork items you'd like.

I can deliver sides of pork or the box shares to the city, around the Annapolis Valley, New Ross and the Truro Area.
