I need to buy a pig (whole) -- triangle area -- recommend a source?

hey all -- having a pig pickin soon with a friend and i'm wondering if anyone can recomend a pig farm/raiser/salesperson -- i'd prefer a naturally/organically/humanely raised animal, one raised with love and one that will be smoked and eaten with love. nice to be at the top of the food chain sometimes....don't mind travelling a little bit to get it...

anyway, any help would be much appreciated....

  1. Cane Creek Farm (http://www.canecreekfarm.us/) has DELICIOUS pork.

    Depending on timing, Chapel Hill Creamery sells whey-fed pork...the ultimate in recycling. Rather than dealing with their whey as waste, they raise tasty pigs on it. Old article - http://www.weaverstreetmarket.com/art...

    1. Cliff at Cliff's Meat Market in Carrboro can get this for you.

      1. i agree with will-- if you get it from cliff's, there's no guarantee on humane/organic/source, etc. another avenue to check is with eliza at cane creek farms. she's at the carrboro farmer's market on wednesdays and saturdays. i'm using her pigs for my wedding reception. (pig pickin)

        1. whoops, i didn't read will's whole post. he already said that. sorry... happy eating!
