Moving about…

A bit of rearranging was needed in the pig pens today. We still had two females in pen 7 with their seven brothers and they were approaching piglet making age!!! After a bit of hassle trying to open the now very firmly…

An early start…

We were off to the Fruit & Veg Market nice and early this morning to stock up on apples for the pigs and carrots for the sheep. We’re often lucky enough to get ‘horse apples’, apples just past their prime, at a…

Babe & Flower had visitors…

Babe & Flower’s young, schoolgirl owners came by the farm on their way to their horse riding lesson and were amazed by the size of their ‘little’ piglets! The girls have known from day one the purpose of the pigs…and as David always says…
