Pigs go for $/lb live hanging weight -or email me for live pig prices
We have been quite busy on the farm -new underground heated hog waters, new fencing and a succesfull forage season.
This spring we planted 4 acres of forages mixed. We divided the fiels into 1/2 lots and used temporary fencing to rotate the hogs every week. The temp fencing worked really, except for the piglets that just ran under them and about!! Drarft essex rape, clover sorgum, millet and hairy vetch. The hogs were grazing until the middle of November
It worked just great as our feed costs dropped well below our seed costs for the plantings.
Ross at the Rodale Institute has been great in providing support as we approached our forage season. We did pick up an Old Spot from them to add her into the mix - -"Pinky"
As we are expecting new piglets shortly, we picked up 2 nice large black hogs (LBH) for breeding. Check back frequently as we will post photos of our new family members and will post our next litters
Exciting times, yes exciting times!!
Thank you all for a successful 2015 and look forward to 2016. We are now taking orders for April litters avail in May or June.
Place your orders and send your deposits as we sold out last year. We planted some mixed forages in the pastures last year and plan on replicating some of them and trying new combinations. A rye grass, dwarf essex rape seed, oat and forage soybean mix seemed to work well.
We also ran fencing deeper into the woodlot down to a muddy area - -A favorite hang out for the pigs during the dog (or HOG) days of summer. They enjoyed eating the beechnut and acorns this fall. Another big treat, in addition to the banana chips was the apple harvest from our 4 different apple trees-nothing went to waste...and we have some of the best chemical free apple sauce for the rest of winter!
Just picked up 1/2 ton of dried banana chips for special treats for our hogs. I give them some after nightly organic grain feeding and a dessert!
You can hear them munching and crunching
