Cooking dead animals WHOLE-Greenville SC

JB BANNISTER Jun 26, 2011 12:19 PM

I need a supplier for 10-15lbs baby pigs. I am willing to drive up to an hour away to get them. Live or dead it does not matter. I am working on a recipe for a boneless stuffed baby pig and I need a small pig to debone first.

Any help is appreciated.

    This is what I ended up with. I stuffed him with corn bread dressing, pork tenderloin and chicken breast. Over all is was good but I with I had put cherries in the eyes for the pictures.

      Hi Jeff! You might try Hickory Nut Gap farm up near Asheville. http://www.hickorynutgapfarm.com They pasture raise pigs and might be a possibility.

        Just having bought a pig for a pig roast I can tell you what I found in the Asheville area. Hickory Nut gap could not provide me with the 50 pounder, I wanted. All they had was a half of pig at 90lbs. I don't think they breed but instead purchase them young, That being said the only location I could find with a pig the size I wanted was M&M Meats in Hendersonville. (828) 692-3558. Good luck and let me know if you were successful, I would like to cook smaller pigs as well.

          I just was able to secure one from a place here in Greenville. I was lucky as I don't think they normally do them this small. Two 4 week old pigs were $75 a piece alive. I took them to Vaughn's in Greer to be processed. Vaughn's did have some small 45lbs-65lbs pigs. I will probably call them next time I break out the La Caja China for a party.
