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.
Our t-shirts come in eggplant, ocean and black colors and in women’s: small, medium, large, XL and unisex: small, medium, large, XL. Please indicate during checkout which you prefer. The shirts are manufactured by TS Designs.TS Designs still sells largely to local, environmentally and socially-conscious businesses and organizations . Special thanks to local artist Lori Melliere and graphic designer Tripp Tuttle for creating these shirts.
Our prosciutto is made with our Ossabaw Island Hog. The ham is cured for two years, thinly sliced, and ready for your fancy dinner party or camping trip. Each package is 4 ounces and they are $13 each. We ship at the beginning and the middle of each month priority mail (takes 2-3 business days). Order as much as you like – it keeps for months in the refrigerator and it’s great for gifts.
