Happy 2nd Birthday Blog

Today the blog turns 2 years old. So, we got it some pigs!


Our buddy Huck was kind enough to loan us his kennel, so we could transport the five piglets. We went out to a farm on a windy ridge-top this morning and loaded them in the Subaru. This makes the third kind of livestock that car has hauled. 


Farmer John had a big grin on his face for the whole ride, despite the smell. 


They are settling in to their new home. They have two stalls in the barn with lots of hay bedding. We built a trough for their food and have a tub for water. They were happy to find both - I'm assuming they were happy from all the snorting. 


Thanks for reading along with all the farm adventures!

    You will soon learn to love the fragrance and the piglets. They look pretty happy to be riding to your farm. Their grins are as wide as Farmer John's!

  4. Will you be raising them on conventional feed, non-GMO or organic?

    1. Tari, at this point we are giving them feed from the local feed store plus scraps from the house. When they are a bit bigger we'll put them out in the pasture/woods to forage but still supplement with feed.

    1. Well, I'm not sure. So far there hasn't been much pig-cat interaction. Although, Badger seems VERY interested!
