“What’s up, Sunday!” says this little piglet.
.
Grant is leaving Tuesday morning for @farmbuilder_1 ‘s Farrow to Finish pig school, (with a visit to @Polyfacefarm first!).
.
So we’re getting a lot done today before he leaves me and our staffer Brittney to (wo)man the farm all week. 👩🏼‍🌾💪🏻👩🏻‍🌾

🐷 Healthy snacks for piggies!🍈
.
The Large Blacks (aka Emo Ear pigs) are a little more tentative than our Berkshires and Herefords with kitchen scraps, but nonetheless today it was their turn for some treats: cantaloupe rinds and seeds, basil and mint stems and elderberry branches and berries!

I rendered lard all day yesterday.  It smells like I murdered a pig in my kitchen. 
And my 11 year old son just told me it looks like pee.

Toby & Baby! ⛈ 😴 💤 ❤️ Just two farm pigs cuddling & snoozing while it storms outside.
This sight is priceless! Rescued animals are absolutely amazing!

We gave Fern a jungle.... It’s the remnants of the sweet potato vines.  We dug up the taters yesterday. 
Unfortunately for DH - They are currently residing in the garage (curing) 🍠

I believe the name of Large Black breed of pigs (yes that is actually the name of a breed, how creative) should officially be changed to Emo Ears. More descriptive AND more creative. 😉 Whose with me? 😂
.
These Emo Ears mamas are enjoying life piglet free (since they’ve been weaned) and with views of the cattle and goats. 👌

Pretty sweet little scene, huh? 🐷💕
.
The reality is that we let this first time mom farrow with her older sister (they had their litters two days apart) and she is hardly nursing, has barely any milk and is generally way less attentive to them. Pretty sure the piglets all think the other piggy is their mom and this one is an extra milk bar *if* she’s remotely feeling like nursing. Most of the time I see all 12 nursing on the other sow.
.
So... likely on the cull list for this piggy. As we’re building up our herd we’re in cull-heavy mode. We have lots of great gilts to choose from in our spring litters, so we can afford to pick the moms with only the best traits. Years down the road we will be very grateful for good genes and good mothering skills. 👌

Well, we had hoped to get a bunch of feed out of this sweet corn but it was a new plot and we were quite late planting and the first fall frost came pretty early. Good news is the pigs still love it!

We’re using pigs to turn a new field over. They’re fun and good at it. #mangalitsa #farmpigs #veggiefarmersgrowingpork oh, and you should see them devour unsold tomatoes. Almost more satisfying than selling them
