Bringing Home the Bacon

It's always fun to bring home a batch of feeder pigs. We don't have enough fencing up to pasture them very much, so we do feed them grain. However, we feed a lot of other things to the pigs to cut the cost of the grain, and to vary their diet. They love whey, garden scraps, and any extra eggs we have. In the end, we get delicious pork. Can't complain about that!


  1. Would love to see the progress on your porkers. DH mentioned getting a pig next spring to fatten out and I always like to see how it REALLY goes!

  2. Goats are so complimentary to goats and chickens, in my opinion. I'll try to post any tips/tricks we use to make it easier.
