We are sitting here pondering on what we should be charging customers for our pork £/Kg. Previously we've taken the retail price average from the Farmers Guardian but maybe we are selling ourselves short, this week it's averaging about £6/Kg?

If you are talking about selling as complete pigs, butchered, boned, rolled etc then I would say you are doing very well indeed.
Still a good price even if proportions are made into sausages.
The average price you mention will be reflecting a butchers counter price where only specific cuts are sold piece by piece.
Hope that helps but if you have a strong market and can achieve more then all the better.
All the best,
