The Process of butchering the pork

After the hog is slaughtered it is hung in the cooler to pull the heat and moisture out of the carcass.  It is monitored until the hog is ready to butcher, usually beef hang from 3 to 7 days.  The pork is then processed according to the customers specifications.  All the cuts are then wrapped in freezer film or vacuum packed.  The trimmings that remain will be deboned and double ground into Sausage.  The sausage is packaged into freezer bags and tape tied.  The bags are completely microwave safe.  The pork is then placed into the freezer.  The pork will remain  in the freezer until it is frozen hard and the customer comes for pickup.
