All our meat is organically raised on pasture at our state-of-the-art hog facility. You may purchase our meat by the whole hog or by the cut. Orders must be picked up by the customer, as Rodale Institute cannot ship hog and pork purchases.

Order a Whole Hog

To place an order for a whole hog:

  1. Please fill out the form below to submit your deposit, reserve your hog, and choose a pick-up date. Dates may change due to the processor’s schedule—we will email you if this is the case.
  2. Once the deposit is processed, our Food Production Specialist Jesse Barrett will contact you for more specifics about your desired cuts. Cut information due dates correspond to pick-up dates and can be found on the form below.

Hogs are $4 per pound, which is based on their hanging weight (200-220 pound average). Your deposit will be subtracted from the total cost of your hog upon pick-up.

On your pick-up date, please visit the Main Office at Rodale Institute Headquarters in Kutztown, PA, to pay your invoice. A staff member will then escort you to the freezer to load the product into your vehicle.

Lehigh Valley Meats butchering and processing fees will apply to orders. Please visit their website for more information and prices on butchering and other services.

Meat Cuts

To place an order for specific cuts, please contact Heather Gurk, Garden Store Manager, at Heather.Gurk@RodaleInstitute.org or 610-683-6009. You may pick up orders at the Garden Store during open hours.
