We got our pigs today!

Last year we raised pigs for the first year ever, and we loved it!  Not only was the meat amazing, but they decreased our waste by eating all of our scraps (except meat products).  And, this is perfect timing with this pasta sale at Shaw's.  Last year I scored 46 boxes of whole grain pasta for free and we fed it to the pigs, this year I'm hoping to do a whole lot more!  Nothing like feeding your pigs for free!

Just to give you an idea about how small they are...that is my two year old son in the background.


  1. Awesome!! Do you process the meat yourselves? That is a great idea.

  2. No, we sent them down to a place in Mass. The meat came back all packaged, labeled, and frozen. You wouldn't believe the quality compared to the grocery store! And we know what they have been fed. We think it's great for the kids too, to know where there food is coming from.

  3. That fantastic! realy! these website is way better then everything I ever saw.
