Hosting a big outdoor summer party got a lot easier in Oxford County when this pork producer started selling whole, hot, barbequed pigs. “Party PigTM” is a ready-to-serve, pig roast in a box which is sold directly to consumers. For even more convenience, customers can either pick up their pig or have it delivered. At the same farm, a catering business has been set up with a 2,400 square foot commercial kitchen – enough capacity to cater a party of 5,000. By using meat and produce from local farms, the business supports the economy. The owners are also talking with several of these farmers about renting the kitchen out to process their produce.
