Whole pig in Philly area?

  • 6

Does anyone know where I can get a whole pig for roasting in the Philly area? I'm looking for a fairly large one, 80 lbs. at least...

  1. One of the best places is Blooming Glen. Its in Upper Bucks County, about 45 minutes from Center City.

    They can provide equipment too, or just the animal.

    You will see pricing for just the animal or including prep and equipment.

        Is this the place across from Tussock Farms?

        1. re: paychecktoday

          Exactly... Tussock is at 1239 Rt 113 and Blooming Glen is at 1248. Names are confusing up there as the Blooming Glen CSA actually uses part of Tussock farms to grow the vegetables for the CSA. Blooming Glen catering are the folks that also sell bbq on the weekend.

      2. You can definitely get a whole pig Cannuli's in the Italian Market (they'll also roast it for you if you want).

        1. Also at Esposito's on 10th and Tasker in South Philly (Although I believe they only do cooked)...
