New piggies arrive!

Did you know …

Our piglets are not born here on the farm.  We have friends in Kendall County that birth them for us.  They have all the sows (mommas) and boars (papas) and raise the babies for several weeks until they are about 30-50 pounds.  Pigglets1

Then we pick them up and bring them to their new home at our farm.  They stay here with us for 6-7 months until they are around 300 pounds and ready for the butcher.

Here’s Andrew with one of these little ones this fall.
