Getting Ready

The hogs are gone and it is time to start getting the ground ready for growing season.  Chris went out and started on the garden and our expansion area.  We are tilling under more land so we can plant a good forage crop for the new hogs we are planning to get late Spring.  Once we have more information on pricing and availability of the hogs we will post it on the site.  Here are some shots from this weekends work.

Hen Boxes

We ordered some new Hen boxes from Henpals.  Check them out:

 The Hens love them.  Our hens started laying early and we are getting just over a dozen a day.  If you want to purchase some farm fresh eggs and are in the area (Yuma, CO), let us know.

Hogs in the Garden

Once the hogs got bigger we moved them into our garden.  The garden had turnips and radishes that were planted for them and lots of left over crops to forage off of.  This is part of our plan to produce lean and healthy hogs.  Below are a few pictures of the hogs a couple months after being in the garden.
