All six piglets are eating well and growing like weeds. They have become more curious about us and will now eagerly approach us, probably since we are now their only food source. A few let us pet them while they eat, but as soon as they notice it's us touching them, they scamper off and circle back around to the food. I noticed this week that the littlest gilt, with the most white markings has blue eyes! Her picture is below.
In other news, Rocky is now believed to be pregnant and will probably be having her litter in the next month or so judging from her size. We are fencing another pasture tomorrow and Nick will build another pig house. We will separate her in the next week or two, so she can prepare for her new arrivals and not have to compete for food.
I have added another page to our site with information on reserving your half or whole hog of pastured pork. We also finally got our honey bottled from our very small harvest this year and have a few bottles left for sale.
