Buy local pork online from farmers and butcher shops near you

ChopLocal is incredibly proud to partner with pork farms near you! We offer pork from a network of farms and small butcher shops across the country.

When you buy local pork, you're supporting local farmers and small businesses, and we thank you! Your supoort helps stimulate rural economies and create healthy communities.

Buying direct from a farmer also allows you to have all of your questions answered. Wondering how the pigs were raised? You can ask! Wondering what they were fed? You can ask that, too!

Many of the farms on ChopLocal raise heritage breeds (like Duroc, Mangalitsa and Berkshire), which often leads to higher quality, more flavorful meat than what is available at the commercial level. 

Most Popular Cuts of Pork

1. Pork Chop

Cooking Methods: Pork chops are versatile and can be cooked in several ways. They can be grilled, pan-fried, baked, or even broiled. They can be marinated for flavor or seasoned with herbs and spices.

2. Pork Tenderloin

Cooking Methods: Pork tenderloin is a lean and tender cut. It's excellent for roasting, grilling, or pan-searing. It can be marinated or seasoned before cooking. Because it's lean, be careful not to overcook it to keep it tender and juicy.

3. Pork Loin Roast

Cooking Methods: Pork loin roast is a larger cut and is great for roasting. It can be seasoned with herbs, spices, and a rub. Slow roasting at a lower temperature helps keep it juicy.

4. Pork Shoulder or Pork Butt

Cooking Methods: This cut is known for its richness and flavor. It's often used for slow-cooking methods like braising, roasting, or smoking. It's perfect for pulled pork. A slow cooker or an oven set to a low temperature works well for this cut.

5. Spareribs and Baby Back Ribs

Cooking Methods: Ribs are typically cooked using slow and low methods like grilling, smoking, or baking. They can be pre-seasoned with a rub and then cooked over indirect heat. A final glaze of barbecue sauce is a popular finish.

Interesting Facts about Pork

1. Pork is the world's most-consumed meat!
2. Pork is full of nutrients, including protein, vitamins (including B-vitamins like B12 and niacin) and minerals including iron, zinc and phosphorus.
3. Pork can be leaner than you think! The loin and tenderloin are relatively low in fat.
4. Pork does not have to be cooked "well-done." Cook pork to 145°F for juicy, succulent pork!

Where to find a Whole Hog

Whole hogs for roasting can be hard to find, and we do not have any currently available on ChopLocal.

However, if you want to buy a whole or half hog, processed for your family's freezer, we encourage you to check out the hog farms on ChopLocal, and send them a message. You can also refer to this blog post about buying a whole hog.

Over the Moon Reviews

First time ordering. We brined the two turkey breasts and served them up for Thanksgiving dinner. They were awesome and everyone loved them. Tender and great size for our family of eaters! Can’t wait to try th chicken legs!

Anna, thank you so much for my order! To think I ordered my items last night and they got here today is incredible. I LOVE your products and all your hard work is so appreciated!

The pork is the best! Since moving to Iowa I don’t think I have ever had better meat in my life. Love to support over the moon!

Anna and Shae raise their animals with so much care and you can taste the difference in the meat. We made braised turkey legs with cranberry, star anise and sweet potatoes and it was delicious!

For the past 3 years, we have purchased our meat almost exclusively from Over the Moon Farm and Flowers. From our first 'whole hog' 3 years ago to the recent delivery of pork, chicken, duck, turkey, and lamb, the flavor and consistent quality of the cuts is second to none. The variety offered has expanded our menu and challenged us to try new cuts and new recipes - New Year's Eve roast duck will certainly be a new tradition. They make it easy to order on their website and then deliver right to our door! Give them a try - you will not be sorry. #knowyourfarmer!


We ordered a pasture raised turkey for Thanksgiving in 2021. This was the highest quality meet we have ever cooked. The turkey turned out juice and had such nice flavor. Getting the updates on the turkey's growth was also such a nice, human feeling touch. We will not get our turkey anywhere else. They also have a meat delivery program, it is a MUST try.

Superb meats, absolutely some of the best chicken, beef and pork in Iowa. Lean, deeply flavorful, delivered to your door by the nicest pair of local ranchers. I can’t recommend Anna and Shae and their meats highly enough.

Their pork is out of this world! Absolutely A+. Hard to stop eating:). Fully recommend.
