We have new pigs!

We got new pigs this past week. Here they are on the trailer getting ready to get out into their paddock. The pigs give provide so much for a homesteader. The amount of meat that we get from a pig is a great return on the investment in feeding them. We feed them grass, scraps and leftover milk. We supplement with feed as needed. We are trying to grow quite a few vegetables for them to have in the fall. We are growing potatoes, turnips, beets and other root vegetables to help feed them. Ideally, we would love to be able to grow all of their feed. That is the eventual goal that we are working towards. The kids were really excited to see the pigs come in! They are looking forward to sausage, ham and bacon again.
