How Much Meat will I get?

How Much Freezer Space Do I Need?

To store a whole hog (125-145 lbs.), you will need about 6-7 cu. ft. of freezer space. Thus to store a half hog (60-70), you will need 3-4 cu. ft. of freezer space.

Measuring your freezer

If you do not know the size of your freezer or how much space you have available, follow the steps below to calculate it:

  • Remove all the items from within the freezer, or move to the side to take measurements.
  • Measure the height of the freezer from the bottom to the highest point it can be filled without obstructing the lid for a chest freezer, or to the top for an upright freezer. Record the number using feet as a measurement. For example, 2 feet 6 inches is written as 2.5 feet. Every 3 inches equals 0.25 additional feet, ie. 9 inches equals 0.75 feet.
  • Measure the interior width of the freezer from one inner wall across to the other. Record the number as well, in feet.
  • Measure the interior of the freezer from front inside wall, or door for an upright freezer, to back inside wall. Record this measurement in feet.
  • Multiply the three numbers together to determine how many cubic feet are available to fill with pastured pork.
