Pigs (Sus scrofa domesticus)
Our Saddleback crosses have now gone, and the meat will be sold through our Farm Shop from the 20th November. The fields have been raked and sown with green manures and grasses, to help improve the soil structure and health, also giving the pigs we buy in spring something fun to dig up and munch on. From next spring, we hope to keep two rare breed gilts to become the Farm’s breeding sows, giving us piglets of our own.
Agricultural uses for pigs:
- Hair: paintbrushes, hairbrushes
- Skin: leather
- Byproducts: soap, glue, collagen, pet food, bone carvings
