Once in awhile you take a chance. We saw a trailer parked down by the marina with this sign attached advertising "Tiny's Happy Hogs". I gave the number a call. I talked to Tiny and he explained he was in California working at the refineries temporarily. His parents owned a hog farm in Illinois. They processed the meat at a USDA inspected facility and was delivered to him by tractor trailer. He operated out of his small trailer and freezer in a back shed. He sent me a price list.
Happy Hogs has nose to tail offerings. You can even buy a whole hog if you pre-order. I ordered some bone-in chops, sausage and bacon. I met Tiny at his trailer. Tiny is not tiny. He is a hulking giant of a man who probably eats very well. Once home we tried the sausage and pork chops. They both were very good. Happy Hogs prices are reasonable and we were satisfied. Some times it pays to take a chance.
