Weekly Delivery Route
(Click For Big Picture)
Pickup is available at the farm or on our weekly delivery route around Vermont up and down I-89 & I-91 and now that we are USDA inspection and USDA labels we can ship outside of Vermont. 40 lbs of meat in a box (50 lbs with insulation and box) is a good economical shipping size. Shipping a whole pig takes four to five boxes at about $50 to $150 per box plus about $25 each for the special insulated boxes so figure about $500 or so for shipping on top of the cost of the pig. If you would like shipping, email me your zip code with what you’re thinking to buy and I can give you a more precise quote. Smaller orders can be shipped too but the cost is a little higher per pound which is why for shipped orders I recommend at least 20 lbs per shipment and preferably 40 lbs in a box.
For small orders or to try our pork visit the many fine stores and restaurants that carry our products – see delivery route at right. We do not have a farmstand at our farm so it is not possible to browse the available cuts here at the farm. All sales are by pre-order. No drop by sales as we’re simply not setup for that.

Roaster Pigs: $100 deposit. $215 minimum.
Small roasters that you can do in your home oven, medium roasters for China boxes, big roasters for the spit. All are possible at Sugar Mountain Farm!
Oven/Suckling = 10-50 lbs $6/lb

Quick order form charges just the $100 non-refundable deposit.
Add $65 fee for USDA slaughter to all prices.
Final amount due at pickup based on hanging weight.
For example: a 31 lb roaster x $6/lb + $65 costs $251.
Up to 35 lbs can cook in a typical home oven.
Figure about 1/2 lb per serving account for bones and trim. Mostly deboned roaster pigs are also available as the Easy Carve Porchetta Pigs in sizes of 30 lbs and up.
Big pigs require long cook times and are hard to handle. I recommend two smaller pigs instead.
For roaster pigs enter the desired event date in the order form. It typically takes three weeks to get into the schedule so plan accordingly.
For more about roaster pigs see the Roaster Page.
For the ultimate roaster pig try an Easy Carve Porchetta Pig which is a roaster pig where we’ve removed the bones that get in the way of carving at the table.
Let me know if you have any questions. You can reach me by email at walterj@SugarMtnFarm.com or by phone typically around noon to 1pm or 6pm to 7pm except Thursdays and Fridays which is when I do butchering.
Porchetta Rolls & Pigs:
Porchetta is an elegant, delicious traditional Italian pork roast. We do the hard work of deboning, aging, spicing and tying the pig so it is all ready to cook in your home oven.
For the Easy Carve Pig we remove most of the pig’s bones leaving just the front trotter and head bones for presentation. We stuff the pig with meat, sew it tight and tie it for roasting in typical home ovens. Because the pig is nearly bone-less it is easy to carve at the table.
Both roll and pig porchettas are a fabulous show piece for events and dinner parties!
Easy cooking directions from our family’s own kitchen are on the label.
Figure on about 1/4 lb per serving. I recommend buying larger than smaller because the left overs are fabulous for lunches and traditional Italian style sandwiches.
For porchetta enter the desired event date in the order form. It typically takes two weeks to make up a roll porchetta and three weeks if it is a pig porchetta so plan accordingly.
Custom weights, lengths and spicing can be accommodated. For example we can do a longer Porchetta Easy Carve Pig if you want to do it on a spit or have a larger oven and we can eliminate certain spices such as black or red pepper if you prefer for a modest $25 charge.
Custom Cut Pigs:
We can custom cut a pig to your specifications. Like extra thick chops? Chine-off? Bone-in roasts? Pork neck? Liver and heart? Bones cut for soup? We can cut all of the legal pig to portions that fit your needs.
Quarter Pig = 43 lbs for $360 or about $8.24/lb + custom options
Half Pig = 87 lbs for $580 or about $6.64/lb + custom options
Whole Pig = 175 lbs for $950 or about $5.43/lb + custom options Best Deal!
The quick order form does a $100 deposit for custom cut pigs. The rest is due at delivery. The final price depends on final pig weight and options you choose such as sausage, smoking, etc. Full details and pricing of the various options are on the cut sheet.
If ordering a quarter or half pig we recommend splitting a whole pig with friends or family to get the best deal and the lowest price.
Traditionally over the past two decades we’ve sourced pigs from our genetic lines which we’ve developed since 2003: Yorkshire, Berkshire, Large Black, Tamworth in addition to our primary cross lines such as Mainline and Blackieline. See the Pig Page for details. We also buy pigs from other farms when needed. You can select one of the Sugar Mountain Farm (SMF) lines at an additional cost if you would like. Picking genetics, sex, etc may delay orders in some cases. Otherwise its farmer’s pick at no surcharge.
Let me know if you have any questions. You can reach me by email at walterj@SugarMtnFarm.com or by phone typically around noon to 1pm or 6pm to 7pm except Thursdays and Fridays which is when I do butchering. After 7pm is family time and no phone calls. Email always works.
