Prices after the holidays went up because of low availability. Since after the Chinese New Year prices have not come down as much. Availability is back since the farmers who got back in the game now have corn feed. With all this snow dropped in the east coast there should be plenty of corn to feed these hungry piglets. If the pigs are well fed this is good news for everybody. I'm not changing the price on the menu just yet so it's better to call 201.439.0522 for updates.
