4th of July Hot Dogs!

Sugar Mountain Farm All Natural Hot Dog Label

Holly picked up the next big batch of hot dogs from the smokehouse yesterday and delivered them to stores. Read the label and notice how short the ingredient list is for our famous all natural, pastured pork, smoked, skin-on hot dogs with no-nitrates and no-nitrites. All the goods stuff you want your kids to eat. All that delicious taste and the snap of natural casings that you love pan fried, in the oven or over a cookout fire. Look for the label in your local stores including:

Now’s your chance to get them before they sell out which happens very fast. We can’t make enough – they’re that good. As one customer in Norwich, Vermont put it, “Sugar Mountain Farm hot dogs are the best hot dog I’ve ever had – they’re as good as it gets.” Can’t be much better than that!

Outdoors: 72°F/54°F Sunny, Light night rain

    yumm – those hot dogs sound wonderful. Wish you weren’t so far away!

    I can’t believe how long I’ve been reading your blog (years!), and can’t believe that I may finally get a couple of pigs next week! I moved to my 10 acre farm 18 months ago, and have taken my time learning my land, my physical limits (I’m a 60 yr old former city person!), and learning how to get things done. Pigs weren’t on my list yet, but there’s a couple of young, 50# pot-bellied pigs that need a home, and I could use some meat in my freezer next winter. I like that they’re small, and hope that means they’ll be easier for a rookie to work with than the full sized guys. I’ve got my electronet ready to go, and a 1400 sq foot area that needs clearing – for starters. Next up this weekend I need to build them some shelter for shade…. using all of the heavy wood I shunned for my chicken tractors. Can’t make a pig house too heavy, I think? Figured I’ll put them on 700 square feet and watch to see how they do. Everyone here tells me I’m crazy to consider it – pigs are disgusting, will destroy the land, etc. I just smile, nod, and come back here to re-read and prepare myself. Thanks so much for all the advice you’ve shared with your many *lurkers* through the years! It’s been a real eye-opener to learn about integrating pigs into a balanced system. Wish me luck!

    • Hayden,

      Make a strong physically fenced area of 16′ x 16′ or even 32’x32′ to be their home space. Build it of something secure such as hog panels on T-posts, pallets, lumber, etc. Inside that hard fenced area put the netting on the walls but don’t bother to electrify it. Just inside of that, maybe 6″, put step-in posts with polywire or smooth wire. Electrify that inner fence with a 2.5 joule or greater fence energizer. Since you’ll be just doing a small electric netting later I would not go more than 6 joules as it can burn out polywire and netting wires.

      This is where you’ll train them to electric fencing. They need to learn about electric before they go out onto pasture and before they tangle with netting. Later you can use this area as their home base, sending them out to pasture. In this home base you can have a wallow, water, any supplemental food, a shelter, etc. This place will become a great garden for corn, broccoli, cucumbers, squash, pumpkins, etc next year.

      When you have netting out on pasture, tension the corners well and stake down the bottom between the vertical stays. Clip the bottom leads as described in this article. That will help with reducing grounding.

      Good luck with your new pigs and enjoy them both in the field and on your plate.

    I was visiting my brother in law last fall around thanks giving and had some of your wonderful hot dogs at the chubby muffin in burlington. WOW! That is how a hot dog should taste! He had been raving about them apprently he is a regular customer there. I am now spoiled and cant eat other dogs. Do you ship hot dogs? They were just amazing.

    • Yes, we do ship and you can also buy them by the case which greatly discounts the price. See the Order Form on the Literature page for details and shipping costs. I recommend buying by the case, which is 20 lbs, because the shipping is quite expensive since they must go priority and we have to pack them in a special insulated box. There is also a significant discount for by the case orders vs the single one pound packs. We have a number of individual customers both locally and out-of-state who buy the hot dogs by the case this way each year. We just delivered meat to the smokehouse last week for making hot dogs and the next batch is mostly sold out so plan ahead.
