American Guinea Hogs

American Guinea Hogs are an amazing, gourmet quality pork producing breed.  Guinea Hogs are in demand at high end restaurants.  

This is a fairly rare breed that you will never find for sale at a regular grocery store.  American Guinea Hogs grow slowly and distribute body fat better than quick growing (i.e. cheap) commercial breeds. These two factors make their meat extremely tasty and well marbled.

Marbling is just as important in pork as it is in beef!

How it works

Buying Pork from us is pretty simple.  You put down a deposit and then we will let you know when your pork will be ready.

We don’t process an animal until a customer is ready to purchase so every meat purchase is super fresh.   Sometimes we’ll have pork ready for you pretty immediately (within a week or two) and other times you may have to wait a bit until your pig is done growing.

Feel free to contact us to find out when the soonest pork will be ready for you to pick up! FlipFlopRanch@gmail.com

What breed of pig do you raise?

We raise our own American Guinea Hogs, which is a breed chefs are raving about.  We prefer this heritage breed for their superior taste, quality and natural foraging ability.  We have never raised any other pig that tastes as good as an American Guinea Hog.

Why is FFR pork so expensive?

Well, it’s actually not.  Our prices are pretty comparable with store prices.  You’re getting one flat fee for all quality of cuts ranging from cheap soup bones to expensive ribs and pork chops.

Having said that, if you want cheap meat then by all means head over to your grocery store for that dry gross product they call pork.  If you want something so much tastier, gourmet quality that store bought doesn’t even come close to touching-buy it from us.

When and where will they be butchered?

The pigs should be finished by the end of the year, but we ask you to be flexible as raising animals is always unpredictable. We will determine the “when” by gauging their growth rate and harvesting them at their optimum size.

The pigs are always butchered right at the ranch so they don’t have to be stressed out by being taken to a butchering facility hours away.  Eddie at Barstow Country Butchering will be processing the pigs and he always does an excellent job.

What is so special about your pork?

Our American Guinea Hogs are a slow growing breed which is one reason why they taste so much better.  They take twice as long to grow and cost us twice as much to raise as the poorly treated store pork.  Our prices reflect the quality and the care with which our animals are raised.

You cannot find grocery store pork that tastes anywhere as good as our’s.

How will the pigs be raised?

No hormones, no antibiotics. The pigs will have plenty of fresh air, clean water, grass in the form of hay or pasture and be fed vegetable scraps from our all-natural vegetable garden.

What’s the final yield?

Typically a pig will yield about 50-60% of the dressed weight. So a pig that dressed out at 200 pounds may yield about 100 pounds.  You’ll need about around 2 cubic feet of freezer space for the whole pig.
Weight ranges depending on the size of the pig, but we guarantee a minimum of 50 lbs for the above quoted price.  Please note the final price may be adjusted depending on the final weight.

Don’t Have Enough Freezer Space For a whole Pig?

Fortunately for freezer space, Guinea Hogs are small pigs.  Consider splitting a pig (and the costs) with a friend, family member or neighbor or only getting a half share.

How To Reserve Your Pig:

You’ll need to send a $150 deposit check or paypal it above (nonrefundable unless of course we have to cancel the order for some weird reason). You don’t have to decide on how to butcher your pig until its ready and balances will be due once the butcher knows the final dressed weight. The balance owed to Flip Flop Ranch must be paid in full prior to the butcher breaking the pig down into individual cuts. From the time we email you with the final balance due, you will have 2 days to pay the outstanding balance in full to Flip Flop Ranch.

Where to Pick up Your Pork:

We will pick up your finished pork at the butcher’s and bring it back to the farm for distribution or you can pick it up from the butcher. We’ll give everyone as much notice as possible of when this will be.

*The Butcher Fee:  It is a legal requirement to pay the farm fee for the pig and the butcher fee for the meat separately.  The total quoted above includes the cost of the butcher fee.   The butcher fee will be subtracted from the total amount quoted above so you will not be paying any extra.  For instance, you purchase a half psigshare.  The total amount is $450.  The butcher fee is about $100.  You will pay the butcher $100 and the ranch $350 for the total amount of $450.

Please note: Pigs are a “seasonal” farm product at Flip Flop Ranch, we will only be growing and butchering one batch of pigs this summer… order yours today!!
