Hogs

We picked up the hogs this morning!  They will be ready for butcher between Oct-Dec; dates vary depending on the size you want them.  Call now to reserve your whole or half hog.





The above picture is of the forage crop we planted for them.  It is coming up very nicely and should be ready for them to be turned out to pasture in 30-40 more days.  

For more information on our hogs, visit the hogs tab on the page or feel free to contact us by email or phone.

Getting the Garden Planted

Chris got just about everything planted yesterday.  The only things left are the onion bulbs, radishes and the pepper and tomato plants we have been growing inside.  He will get these items planted in another week or two.  Here is a collage of pictures from yesterday.
