I just went to a fun little farm by my home with my daughter.
We saw all sorts of animals like horses, cows, ducks, chickens, rabbits… and one of her favorites: pigs! Pigs is another great animal that is fairly easy to raise on your own homestead. Plus let’s face it… little piglets are adorable. If you have been thinking about raising your own pigs then this article is a great place to start:
If you’d like to enjoy pork that costs only pennies (not dollars!) a pound and tastes far better than the plastic-wrapped meat you buy in a supermarket, you ought to consider raising pigs of your own. Just one of the chunky critters can produce a great deal of premium, low-priced meat for a homesteading family . . . and the four-legged garbage disposals can be fattened on a diet that consists of little more than garden by-products and kitchen leftovers!
Do you own your own pigs? Any other pointers?
