Pork Shares and Winter Shares!

happy powisset pigs

Pork Shares for Sale!
This season at Powisset Farm, we raised twelve piglets to market weight (between 225-250 pounds).  Our pigs were born on our farm in March and lived here, enjoying the pig pasture and quality care from our farm staff.  Our pigs are raised on grain, supplemented by pasture and of course, farm veggies.  When it is time for market our pigs are handled humanely throughout transport and slaughter.  Our pigs were processed at Adams Farm in Athol, MA; a USDA inspected facility.  We are thrilled to provide you the opportunity to purchase pork from Powisset Farm raised pigs.


This season, for the first time, we are offering a Powisset Farm Pork Share.  By purchasing a share, you are ensuring yourself a variety of cuts, including chops, sausage and bacon.  You are also getting an overall discounted rate on our pork and helping to support the Powisset Farm pig operation.  ***we are only selling a limited number of shares!***

The share includes:

1”chops - 4 packages
Tenderloin- 1 package
Country style ribs - 2 packages
Spare ribs - 2 packages
Sausage - 6 packages (1 pound packages)
Bacon - 4 packages (1 pound packages)

The share will contain about 25-30 pounds of pork.   
The shares will be priced at $7.50/per pound of pork.

Shares are available on a first come-first served basis.  
 If you are interested, please email Meryl at or call at 508-785-0339.   

You must provide a $50 deposit to hold your spot.  When you pick up your share, you will pay the balance due, which depends on the final weight of your box.  We are expecting the boxes to weigh between 25-30 pounds.  Therefore, your final cost will be between $185-$225.


We’ll also be offering Powisset pork by the cut at the farm stand.  If you are interested in just a few pounds of pork, you can find pork chops, sausage, bacon and a few other cuts, at the farm stand in our freezers.  Then cuts will be for sale by the pound.

Price by the cut:
1”chops: $7/lb
Tenderloin: $10/lb
Country Style ribs: $7/lb
Sausage: $7/lb
Bacon: $9/lb
