The last pig has been taken care of.....
if you're new to reading our blog, we buy lil weaner pigs in the early Spring.
They're maybe 40 pounds when we get them and over 200 pounds when we slaughter....
We raise 'em up here on the farm, growing them out on some grain.
They don't get much grain....we raise them out on pasture, plus feed them lots of veggies.
They taste fantastic! Must be all that pasture they eat....
then they are finished on all those healthy veggies....
Want to see the butchering process?
Go ahead and take a look, we don't have pictures of the
slaughtering, it's just the butchering.
I'm convinced that if more people knew how their "grocery store meat" was treated and handled, they would Never buy from a grocery store.
We make sure our animals have a wonderful life for the time they are with us....they get to run around and forage, root around and eat lots of bugs, worms and really good food.
A couple of pics from our pork this year...
We do all our own brining and smoking of the hams and bacons...check this out
if you want to see how it works.
There's smoking of fish on that link as well....just scroll down a bit and you will
see the pork post.
