whole hog cost/supplier?

So I've been tasked with helping organize a pig roast...

What does a whole hog cost nowadays and can anyone recommend a butcher who would accommodate this?

        Dan, iirc darrelleats is in Calgary and writes for FFWD :)

        I'd suggest contacting Broek Pork Acres as they process what they raise and they do list whole pork skin on/off on their wholesale product list:

        HTH :)

        1. try Spragg's meat shop at the CFM, their phone# is 403-378-3800;

            Spragg's also has a booth at Kingsland Market.

          2. I'm doing mine next weekend. I got mine from Spragg Farms. CXalled Bob at Second to None Meats and our hog is 80 lbs at a fixed cost of $325.

            1. We just did this and Bon Ton Meat market supplied that pig and large box to roast it in. I don't know the cost.
