• Pork

Pork is sold on hanging weight, the weight after butchering, but before cutting into into individual pieces. Depending on your instructions to the butcher you'll take home 70% - 80% of the hanging weight.

The cost of pork is $4.30 per pound, plus approximately $1 per pound for processing (depending on your order)

An average pig is around 200 lbs.

A whole pig (including processing) will cost approximately $1060, a half around $530

Following is a list of possible cuts from a whole pig. Following each cut is the number of packages and their approximate size. You will work with the butcher to customize your cutting order.

20 pork chops
8 shoulder steaks
4 shoulder roast
2 packages ribs (3-4 lb pkg)
14 lbs sausage (you choose the seasoning)
52 lbs cured (includes ham & bacon)
Neck bones, liver, variety meats

Angus Beef


Before your meat is cut to your specifications a deposit is required ($150 for pork, $150/quarter for Angus beef).  You can mail your deposit to 

Cedar Valley Sustainable

Ottawa IL 61350

 The remainder of your payment is due when you pick up your meat.


Once we receive your deposit we will assign you to our next available butcher date.

For Angus beef and pork we schedule appointments with the butcher approximately once a month, and orders can be delivered along with our CSA shares on this delivery schedule.

You'll get an email letting you know when it's time to call the butcher and work with them to make your cutting decisions. Their staff is helpful and experienced, don't worry if you haven't done it before!
