Mama Pigs on the Farm

Here's a tour of our 4 sows on the farm.  We'll have 2 litters of piglets in just a few days from now. We have sows at the farm so we can raise our own piglets.  We've struggled with finding piglets at the right time, with the quality, breeding, and characteristics that we must have to raise great pigs out on pasture.

This is Swanannoa, a Duroc/ Berkshire cross, who is expected piglets in just a few days from now.

This beautiful pig is a sow (mother pig) who is expecting piglets in just 8 days from now. We are on baby pig watch! Her name is Chestnut.

This is Flopsy Lopsy. She'll have piglets in July. She is half Large Black heritage breed and  half Hampshire. She was bred to a Large Black boar.

This is Clementine. She is best friends with Flopsy Lopsy. She'll also have piglets in July. She is also a Large Black and Hampshire cross.

More food?
