We’re pleased to announce we will have barbecue pigs available starting October 18. At this time we expect carcass weights to be around 70 pounds and increasing 5-10 pounds per week thereafter.
These pigs are Berkshire and were born from July 5 to July 16. They have been on pasture since birth and have been fed non-GMO feed free choice as well. They are truly premium pigs.
You must reserve your pig at least 1 week prior to the desired processing date. The pigs will be slaughtered at G&W Packing in Hickory Grove, SC, under SC inspection. They slaughter on Wednesdays and Fridays.
The price is $2.50 per pound on the carcass weight. Delivery can be arranged for a fee. You may also pickup at the farm or at G&W for no extra charge.
Hey! We have decided to do a Farm Tour this Saturday September 30th at 1:00 pm. We ask that you arrive 15 minutes early so we can be ready to go at 1:00 pm. It is $5 per person and kids under 5 are free.
We will be doing a hay ride to see our grass-fed and grass-finished beef, pastured pigs and pastured chickens. We have broilers (meat birds) and layers right now. We will show you our daily tasks with each animal and explain how we raise them.
We will have beef, pork, chicken and eggs available to purchase. If you want to place an order ahead of time (especially if you are wanting a bigger order) you can do that and we will have it ready for you.
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to come. This will just help us know what trailer we need for the hay ride.
We will be processing all types of our livestock soon and we need to make some room in our walk-in freezers.
We’re now offering price breaks on our sausages. The bigger the bundle, the better the rate. And we’re even putting some bundle sizes on sale this month. Here’s the links to our sausage products: Mild and Hot. Bratwursts are also on sale and are great on the grill.
We will be processing beeves on August 22nd and pigs on August 28th. Now is the time to get your bulk orders in!!
It will be a couple of months before we process beef again and it will be several months before we process pigs again.
You have a few different options.
You can choose a custom half or whole beef and pay on the hanging weight. This is where you will tell us your cutting instructions. Here is a link to the pricing. If you want a half or whole pig where you choose the cutting instructions then you can follow this link and see the pricing for them. If you want to do one of these options you can make your deposit at this link and then Kelly will email you the cutting instructions form to fill out.
If you want to take some of the thinking out of it then you can choose one of our bundles. With beef you can choose an 1/8, 1/4, 1/2 or whole. You can follow this link and it will show you what is included in the package and also the total cost. We also offer pork bundles and you can get a 1/4, 1/2 or whole. You can follow this link and it will show you what comes in the package and what the total cost would be.
If you have any questions or if you are interested in one of these options email email@example.com
We would also like to offer an incentive to all of our customers. If you refer a NEW customer to us and they place an order for one of our bulk options then you will get a $75 credit on your account. This will only apply if the customer is NEW. When they place the order they will need to let us know who referred them. Who doesn’t want $75 in FREE product??
We have lots of exciting things happening at Watson Farms. Check out our calendar below for upcoming deliveries. We appreciate each one of you and thank you for your business and support of our farm!!
We recently moved our feeder pigs to a new paddock and refilled their feeder with non-GMO feed we mill on farm. We use whole roasted soybeans which we expect the pigs will find more tasty than their previous ration.
Also, our sows have all finished farrowing and we have around 40 little pigs running around as well as the 5 sows.
If you know a restaurant, grocery store, or other establishment that would be interested in wholesale pricing on pork or any other products we offer, then please tell them about us. All of our products are truly pastured and rotated as they should be. They are also non-GMO fed now.
Here’s a look at our sows which have been having pigs during the past 10 days or so. The sow carrying the weeds and sticks is building a nest and should have pigs in a day or so. We should have around 40 little pigs by the time they’re done. Check back here or subscribe to our newsletter for upcoming opportunities for pork.
We are extremely pleased to announce that we now have all the necessary ingredients and all systems are go to begin making and feeding 100% non-GMO feed to our chickens and pigs. Thanks for your patience as we purchased feed bins, poured concrete, made repairs and finally bought the grain for this goal. We have heard countless requests from customers over the last 5 years for non-GMO feed and we can now say that all of our livestock – not just cattle – are non-GMO fed.
We are sourcing our non-GMO grains from Barrier Farms. We can get about 7 ton of corn or soybeans at a time and its about a 5-hour round trip.
If left raw, soybeans contain a natural growth inhibitor. Barrier Farms roasts the soybeans which eliminates this growth inhibitor and makes them taste better. We also feel like by using the whole soybean instead of soybean meal we are providing a more nutritious and well-rounded feed for our livestock.
