Farm Welcomes New Arrivals
This go-round we are excited to be receiving weaner pigs.
So, what's a weaner pig?
It's a pig in a bun...duh!
But seriously, a weaner pig is a piglet freshly weaned from his/her momma. They are just little guys and gals. They are also very, very cute!
This group of snouts will be with us for the next six months or so and we will raise them to a fat and sassy 280-300 pounds, approximately. It is a fun adventure and rewarding to know that these guys and gals will go on to feed thousands and thousands of people--including my family.
What would you like to know about pig farming or farmers in general?
