2023 Preorders are here!

by | Jan 1, 2023 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

I raise my own protein. I don’t trust anyone else to do it at my fanatic level. Fanatic to me means, happy animals, fed the best locally sourced food in a way that is good for them and the land they are raised on, without drugs or hormones and processed without stress and bleach. There is more on this on our main web page.

We ask our customers to preorder because we only raise what is ordered.  While I’m raising my food, I’m willing to raise the same food, at the same fanatic level for you and your family.  If you want that level of attention paid to your food as well, let me know by putting down a deposit.

Pigs / Pork

Sugar and Spice
Spice and Sugar

We used to compete in professional barbeque competitions (like BBQ Pitmasters). While playing around in that hobby, we discovered that not all pork is alike, some has flavor.  Being a self proclaimed fanatic, I had to figure out how to get the most flavor into our pork.  At first I shopped around piglet producers to find someone making the best quality pork.  I found commercial pork, okay pork and good pork.  Don’t get me wrong, even commercial pork raised my way is better than the store (and better for you).  

There are only two breeds of pig that are considered quality pork, Duroc (tender flavorful pork) and Berkshire (juicy flavorful pork).  The picture shows Sugar and Spice. They are the start of our pig breeding program.  The girls are pure Duroc. We artificially inseminated these beautiful gilts at the beginning of December with juice from a lean Berkshire boar. We know what the result is, wonderful fat interlaced pork (flavorful, tender and juicy). The best you can get in the Inland Northwest!   By now I’m sure you want one of my pigs!

Butchery is extra.  We will schedule the butchery for you or if you order a whole pig you can have it butchered at butchery of your choice.  Lastly, you can be involved in the processing of your pork, email for details.

We are offering another “type” of pork this year. We call it “Planners Pork” and this product is the same delicious pork as I listed above. The only differences are you know the whole price up front, you don’t have to make any butchery choices and the pig will be harvested a little earlier. This is a great way to see if you are cut out for buying sides of pork!!! More details can be found at https://www.springcreekidaho.com/product/planners-pork-half-deposit

An important note on both chicken and turkey orders, if you don’t have the freezer space I can hold them for you until September, but they must be paid for and absolutely must be picked up before September 1st.

Turkey preorders will be CLOSED on February 15th. They will be processed, frozen and ready for pickup on August 1st this year. So the pickup window will be between August 1st and 3rd.
