My New Pig

Yesterday I took delivery on my quarter share of a heritage breed pig from Harry Ludlow's Fairview Farm (69 Horsemill Lane, Bridgehampton). That's almost 65 pounds of pork in my freezer. How long will it last? We will see. I'll start off slowly tonight, sauteeing 3 ounces (out of 4 pounds!) of pancetta along with some baby kale from Bette and Dale's (1726 Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike), to serve alongside my Tuscan beans and whole wheat boule from Cavaniola's. I'll post the recipe tomorrow, the first of a weekly feature on how to eat a quarter of a pig. Stay tuned.


  1. Hi Lauren,

    I have another quarter of that pig (I'm Jonathan's sister), and the link that got us all to this (not-so-little) piggy. The Ludlows have been our neighbors for 24 years.

    Look forward to reading your blog and meeting you one of these days via Jon and Sue.

  2. Is there any more pig left?

    I've been looking for a local source like this for a while, but haven't had any luck on the North Fork.
