We added two piglets to the farm this week. We don’t breed pigs here, so I got these little gilts from a neighbor.
We’ll keep them in a barn stall for a couple of weeks, at the most, until they’re used to us and tamed. Then we’ll put them out in the pasture where they’ll be able to roam freely around six acres, living the kind of lives pigs were intended to live. I’m sure I don’t need to remind y’all of how the vast majority of the pigs in this country are treated and raised.
A recent visitor to our farm said, “If I had to be a farm animal, I’d want to be one here.” I agreed with her.
These little piglets got lucky.
