The Pigs Have Landed!

Our two new Berkshire barrow pigs made it here safe and sound last night. They came from Jacksonville, FL, which was a bit of a trek. However, Berkshires are a heritage breed known for producing the best tasting, melt in your mouth, weak in the knees pork, so it was worth it. They also thrive outdoors and are superior foragers. We look forward to seeing them grow as we pasture them in our woodlot.

With no further ado, Pork and Chop's video debut!
