From an email:

“We [Three Little Pigs] get a lot of customers asking us for butchery classes and fresh cuts of meat. So, we just decided to offer both – at the same time! The idea is simple, you, and if you’d like, a couple of pals pitch in to buy half or a whole pig from TLP (the pigs come from Polyface Farm). You come in on Saturday (and if need be Sunday) and we will teach you how to butcher your pig any way you’d like. From there, we portion everything out and you take your custom meats home for yourself or to share among your friends and family. It’s going to be awesome! Here is the breakdown:

1/2 pig weighs approx 110lbs. The price per pound is $3.75
Lecture and instructional – Half Pig: $375 -or- Whole Pig: $500
The service takes place on weekends only (scheduling at least two weeks ahead)
Each customer can bring two guests. Additional guests can attend for an additional $100 per person
We will be selling cutting boards, butcher knives, and aprons can be purchased at a discounted rate
TLP will provide lunch and kitchen tour to all guests”
