We are getting pigs!

We are getting pigs!

We have just ordered 3 piglets which will be ready to collect in the middle of March.

We have ordered gilts (females) which will be easier to keep and unlike boars will not taint if I keep them for too long!

The idea will be to have three, two for us, and one for a friend, and they will be in the freezer by early October, and we will probably just have them for pork, rather than sort out any bacon or gammon.

I do need to sort some housing out & cor blimey isn't stuff expensive, so it's going to be a DIY house for them, and it'll be one that can used to house some of our pygmy goats at a later stage.

I'm looking forward to the challenge - watch this space for pictures!
