Where can I find a whole pig in MSP?
Does anyone know where a good place to find a whole butchered pig in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area? I'm looking at roasting one this weekend.
Thanks in advance.
I have no idea but it's good to see you guys back on this board! Will you be here for a while?
I would try Nelson's Meat in Hopkins. I know they also do pig roasts so they do have whole pigs.

We are probably delaying the whole pig thing because we don't have enough people coming and most pigs tend to be about 40#. However, I did want to share 2 other tips I got outside of chowhound for others who may have had their interest piqued:
By the way, the reason we are interested in this is that my birthday gift to Paz was something called La Caja China: https://www.lacajachina.com/
Finally, JohnE: that'll do pig. . . that'll do.
