It sounds like fun to have baby pigs running around, and it is!  We’ve found Mangalitsas to be the easiest pigs to farrow (have their babies) and raise, but it isn’t all roses.  Mark shows you one of our newest sows and her litter:

Whether you spell it Mangalitsa, Mangalica, Mangalitza, or (as this article does) Mangalista, this pig is cool.  This weekend we’re going to have a lot of porky fun teaching folks how to process a Mangalitsa hog at home.  More info on this at Anyone Can Farm.  This article is a cool story on the history of this breed of pig and the things that we love about it.

The farm is a family affair, and so we encourage the kids to try their hands at something entrepreneurial.  For the last several years Keith has nurtured  his free range turkeys as his project.  He is getting pretty good at brooding the not-so-bright birds and keeping them in good form on pasture.

Now is the time!  A GMO free, pasture raised turkey tastes how turkey should taste, with no added salt water.  It’s just good, clean, healthful food to grace your holiday table.  Reserve yours today by clicking here!

Even pigs having babies can be a family affair.  Here’s how our mangalitsa sows farrow in the summer on pasture.

We do sell weaned pigs from time to time, and pork is always available through our online store.
