Welcome to our pork loving ag blog where we are Hog Wild about farming. Here in Missouri, at Bacon Blogger HQ, we roll with around 44,000 snouts a year--all of which enjoy indoor accommodations. We want to share our story of family, farming, and food with you! So, stick around to learn about a real farm family and see what modern pig farming is all about...maybe you'll go hog wild too.
Have you ever wondered what the inside of those big white barns with the giant fans look like? If you haven't seen one yet or if you've only seen what anti-aggies have posted, here's your chance to see the real deal from a real family farmer. I will be starting a little photo tour of our barn so everyone can see the process of raising pigs. In this first one the barn is empty to show how clean it is before the pigs come in. You can also see the shear size of it, this thing is huge.
Here are a few pictures to show the length of this barn. It's a heck of a long walk to the end!
Before every group of new pigs we have our barns power washed and disinfected to ensure that our piggies come into the cleanest environment possible. We also take this time to do work on the barns, repairing what needs be repaired and performing routine maintenance on the barns. Once we're done cleaning this barn it is cleaner than most homes! Doesn't it look brand new?
This is my husband, Aaron. He's fixing the water lines using his carpenter stilts. Beats a ladder!
Soon the baby piggies will be here and we can't wait to show them to you! I'll keep you updated bloggers.
