piglets……now life is complete again!
We really missed Roxy and Matilda’s presences since their harvest two weeks ago. We’ve been enjoying the fruits of that harvest, but pigs are such astounding animals to have around……we missed them. So, today we picked up our three little piglets from Turnip Rock Farm in New Auburn, WI. Our friends Josh and Rama raise pigs organically and had three sows give birth over a month ago, so they had lots of cute little piglets available. These three girls are half Duroc, which is a pig breed renowned for some delicious flavors. And they are just really freaking cute. They’ll be smothered with love (we can’t stay away from them actually) for the next 6-7 months and fed like queens- we seriously made smoothies for them today in the blender, since they can’t digest whole or cracked grains yet being so tiny! They are 25-30 lbs now, and will grow to 300+ by late April. Two pigs are available to the first takers, email for details.
