Order Your Roaster Pig Soon!

Sugar Mountain Farm Pig Roast

Now is the time to plan your events and order a roaster pig. Roasters can vary from the intimate ~10 to 35 pounders that can be cooked in an oven up to larger spit roasters up to 200 lbs to feed a village. Be sure to order at least two weeks in advance of your event, further in advance is better in the busy roaster season.

Greater New England Backers Contacted

After completing† Kickstarter packages to Vermont backers we contacted everyone in the great states of NH, ME, MA, RI, CT, NY and NJ – that is to say the greater New England area. If you are in these states but haven’t gotten an email from us yet then please let me know by emailing me at walterj@sugarmtnfarm.com so we can connect.

We’ve also been filling the CSA Pre-Buy packages so if you’re one of the pre-buyers for a quarter, half or whole pig – completely separate from the Kickstarter project – and want to get your pork now let me know.

We are still only Vermont state inspected which means we can only deliver within the borders of Vermont. But if you want to meet us along our weekly delivery route or come to the farm we can fill out of state orders now. That saves shipping costs on Kickstarter packages – we’ll give you a big bonus of extra meat to enjoy!



†I say completed with a qualification because there are a couple of people who have scheduled their pickups but not yet actually gotten their meat yet or have gotten partial delivery with more to come.

Along with the warming weather, we’ve delivered to all of the Kickstarter backers in Vermont. Thank you to all of you for all of your support! It was great to meet you and hear all the wonderful feedback.

Extra oddments are available at now charge with the half and whole pig orders.

See the cut sheet order form for details.

There are also a 70 lb and a 22 lb roaster pigs available in the freezer. The smaller one can be cooked in a home oven. See the Roaster Page for details.

Christmas Oven Roasters 2016

Note that we do not cook pigs – we sell them raw ready to cook.

Want an elegant dinner for Solstice, Christmas or New Years? Roast an oven pig! They are easy to do much like cooking a turkey or large chicken. Typical oven roaster pigs are about 20 to 40 lbs and fit in most home ovens. I like to brine them in salt, sugar and spices for a few days before roasting much like making bacon. I currently have one in the freezer – more typically available with three weeks notice.

22 lb @ $150 + $65 processing = $215 ready to cook.

See the Roasters Page for more details.
