What’s in a pork share?

We get questions about this all the time, so it seemed like it was time to do a full scale breakdown. The last pork share that we kept for our family had a hanging weight of 170lbs. On this post you will find pictures of the finished pork. I have listed out the approximate weight of each type of cut we received below.

Something to note: If you would like more traditional looking ham and bacon, you will want to have your meat smoked. We choose not to have our meat smoked because the smoke spices contain sugar. We do have a pretty great recipe for curing our ham and bacon, which we are happy to share upon request. Maybe that will someday make it on the farm page!

15 lbs. Bacon

27 lbs. Ground Pork

15 lbs. Pork Loin Roast

5 lbs. Pork Spare Ribs

17 lbs. Pork Butt Roast

5 lbs. Pork Chops

7 lbs. Pork Rib Roast

2.5 lbs. Baby Back Ribs

11 lbs. Ham Steak

12 lbs. Ham

2 lbs. Tenderloin

Bacon
Ground Pork, Roasts, Ribs, Chops
Ham, Tenderloin, Roasts
Ground Pork, Pork Chops, Ribs
Ham Steaks

This is not the exact cut sheet for the meat above, but it is similar.

I hope this is helpful information!!
