Roasting Pigs FAQ

Do you cook the roasting pig?

No, all roasting pigs at J&J Packing Company are sold fresh or frozen.

Do your roasting pigs come with the head on?

Yes. All roasting pigs (Less than 100 lbs.) are sold whole with the head on, feet on, and skin on. You can request to have the head removed, but you will still pay for the full price of the pig (head included) if the pig weight is less than 100 lbs.

Roasting Pigs Over 100 lbs. can be purchased with or without the head. If the head is removed, the weight of the head is not included in the price.

Are your roasting pigs degutted and dehaired?

Yes. All roasting pigs sold at J&J Packing are degutted and dehaired.

What does “dressed” mean?

The term “dressed” means that the pig has been degutted and dehaired. It can also mean “ready to cook.”

How are your roasting pigs packaged?

Fresh Roasting Pigs are sold covered in a thick clear plastic bag. They are not vacuum sealed.
