    Delivering a variety of our

    healthy, high quality, vacuum-packed pork cuts to your freezer.

We are the farmer and this is our pork. From our farm to your freezer to your fork; this is the Whole Pig experience. We specialize in a variety of high quality pork products that you can pick up at our on farm store or get delivered directly to your home. We also supply you with the tools and recipes to maximize your dining experience. Now, just for clarity, even though we are called The Whole Pig, you don’t have to buy a whole pig. You can pick up a package of 2 chops, or a pound of gluten free sausage, or a pound of our premium dry cured bacon….just to select a few items. Also we now have fully cooked, ready to serve pulled pork and St. Louis ribs. mmm good and quick, easy, nutritious and tasty. These two products can be on your table from the freezer in 10 to 20 minutes. And for you Garlic lovers out there we started growing garlic a few years ago and have fresh in season garlic in our store as well. Look for Garlic Scapes in June and fresh garlic in July.

Our farm store hours are 9 to 5 Monday to Friday. Most Saturday’s we are open til 2:00 however, check out our facebook page or call us to make sure about the weekend. Our store number is 519-237-3255 or cell at 519-851-3327 or contact us for inquiries. We invite orders on our answering machine, e-mailed, faxed and we take payments can be made by cash, cheque, e-transfer, debit & credit cards. We try to make it easy so you won’t go “porkless”

Our pork is home grown at our farm near Dashwood, Ontario. Just outside of the beautiful resort community of Grand Bend. We use the highest quality standards when raising our pork, Canadian Quality Assurance Certified (CQA) , which is obvious in the end product. Our pigs are fed corn, soybean meal, whey and a supplement which is fortified with essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids to optimize our pigs’ health and nutrition, on the advice of our animal nutritionist.

The main products are processed at our local abattoir; Metzger Meat Products — where the talented Gerhard Metzger and his team trim and prepare the pork to our specifications. Our pork is always vacuum packed, well labeled and frozen within 30 hours of processing, or as we like to call it “freshly frozen”. (Porkerettes are vacuum packed not frozen) When our product is properly defrosted at home, it will be equivalent to fresh pork and have very little moisture loss.

We have three products that are ready made. Our fully cooked pulled pork and smoked St. Louis ribs are ready to heat up and enjoy. We work with Buster Rhino’s from Whitby and Grandpa Jimmy’s from Grand Bend supplies our pork’n rolls (flavored up ground pork in pastry). To compliment our pork we have BBQ sauce from Buster’s and Garlic spreads, sauce, and spices from The Garlic Box from Hensall, Ontario.

We sell individual packages (1 lb. of bacon, chops, sausage, …) or in packages. They come in a variety of sizes and themes, with the smallest fitting into most fridge freezers. We also sell ¼ ½ and whole pigs. A quarter order gives 2 people, 2 meals a week for 6 months with at least 15 different meal options. The IHNIWTOO (I Have No Idea What to Order Order) includes Roasts, Ribs, Steaks, Sausage, Bacon, Burgers, Pork Tenderloins, Chops and Hocks and specialty items like Porkerettes, Black Forest Ham, Peameal Bacon and Marinated Pork Chops – you get them all. FYI Porkerettes are awesome 100% Pork Meat Sticks and were featured on the show “How it is made”. I take some with me all the time for that afternoon pick up)

JWYWTOO, (Just What You Want To Order Order) is our individual product order we have developed if you aren’t sure about the the 1/4, 1/2, or whole packages. Download info. Through our website, you have access to a nutritionist, wellness coach, chef and Pork Fits. Pork is an important part of this. Not only does pork supply you with essential vitamins and minerals – it is a lean source of protein and tastes really, really good. Pork has been misunderstood for a number of years when it comes to fat content. Did you know pork has 10 cuts that are lower than 6 grams of fat per 100 g serving? Or that Pork contains no trans or hydrogenated fats? Also, with meat protein you will feel fuller longer and again helps to curb that overeating thing. One serving of a pork tenderloin is 28 grams of protein and less than 6 grams of fat.

With The Whole Pig you will know how your food is raised, know it is butcher shop quality, and our ground pork, burgers, sausage and porkerettes are gluten free (Ingredients: our pork meat and spices).

Whether you choose a lb. of bacon, themed packaged or the Quarter, Half or Whole Order, we can tailor a pork package to suit your lifestyle.

We deliver a to areas within 100 kms, and sometimes further, however, we love when customers come to our farm for a chat. We stand behind our product and give money back guarantee if you are not completely happy with your purchase. A package of our products in your freezer is like having your own personal meat counter available to you anytime.

We look forward to serving you.
