As I have mentioned in earlier posts we will be bringing feeder pigs onto the farm this spring.  In preparation for them I am diving into everything hog related.  I have decided to document it all here and on my youtube channel.  Videos will give you a first hand look at what goes on raising feeder pigs from 40 pounds up to just shy of 300 pounds.  

I will record the good, the bad, and hopefully the not too ugly moments of being a beginning pig farmer.  Look for The Pastured Pig Program (working title) this coming spring! 

Between now and then I still have a lot of work.  We are still researching breeds and will most certainly go with a mixed breed.  We will also make sure that mom was pasture raised as well.  Other than that the rest is still to be determined.  This winter will be filled with research and visiting local hog farmers.  Come spring we will have a clear direction set and a plan in motion! 

Stay tuned for more info on the Pastured Pig Program and any other pig related news.  If you have any suggestions or comments we would love to hear from you.  As always email or leave us a message in the comments section.
