Meet Pork & Chop!
After come careful consideration and planning,
After tasting our home made bacon!) We decided we could manage a couple of pigs...We won't be able to pasture them.. we really don't have the space. But We Can feed the healthy food and table scraps and grow them to a decent size.
The benefits obviously being..home cured ham and bacon without nitrates..
Meat raised on a diet WE choose and with Love we share.
Having said that..we don't want to forget WHY we have them..and so have named them Pork and Chop!
Here they are snuggled down in the back seat of the truck on the ride home!
They are a lot bigger than I expected..but then that is do my advantage also!
They are now settled into the old Chicken coop with a heat lamp and plenty of straw on the floor.
They are already Enjoying the deluxe accommodations and
Right now they are being fed twice a day as their food bowl gets empty..We feed them Hog grower..I mix into this any table scraps which I have cooked and Pureed and I mix it all together with warm water into a thick oatmeal like consistency! Which they really seem to love!
I will keep you posted as they grow!
