Our awesome Ossabox’s are finally available again in early October and we’re taking pre-orders now.
Deposit required – $100 – due September 15th.
Pick-up at the Carrboro Farmers’ Market.
The Pack- These weights are estimates, but should be very close. Each package is $250 and includes:
– 1/4lb of prosciutto or 2-5lbs of salted fatback (salt pork/lardo)
– 2+lbs of molasses bacon
– 8 lbs shoulder
– 4 lbs ground pork (4 1lbs packs)
– 6 lbs chops (3 packs of 2 chops) or loin rack
– 2-4 lbs spare ribs (2 racks 2 lbs)
The Hog- The Ossabaw produces some of the most flavorful pork products in the world. The meat is a dark red and the fat is soft, creamy, and high in Omega-3’s. Many call the Ossabaw the walking olive tree. These animals take 18 months to raise correctly, at least twice as long as other pastured hogs. We then hang their hams for another 18-24 months, resulting in wonderful prosciutto (and some seriously SLOW food).
The History- The Ossabaw Island pig came to America when Spanish settlers dropped off their beloved Iberian Hog on the barrier islands of North America. The pigs turned wild and successfully adapted to their islands, in this case, Ossabaw Island, GA. Cane Creek was one of a handful of farms to begin domesticating this breed again, and we now have one of the largest herds anywhere.
