So much has been going on; shaping up our little farm.
The fence project – is done!!! The pasture still needs seeded (need a rain, first), but holy-hallelujah, the fence is built!
The landscaping project is complete:Our faithful assistant, Hunter, is home as of this morning – and doing well! Now, to recuperate from the femural head ostectomy.
What else could be new? OH YES! Pig-farmer is back in business. (That, of course, will lead to more
ammunition inspiration for my blog.) I also think that they mean more work for me…. Ah well, meet the new additions – Berkshire meat-quality pigs:
Now, I’ve got to get back to work. Too much to do to sit still for long. Have a good day!
Cus everything looks great house and critters enjoyed the view go cards Greg
Thanks! I’m glad you get to “see” my home/farm. 🙂
Just remember, Marla, a Happy pig is a Tasty pig.
I think keeping them cool with the hose should help keep them happy during this awful heat!
Only one rocking chair on the front porch? Why exactly did Pig Farmer decide to raise pigs. And what exactly do ya’ll do with the goats, i.e., what’s their purpose?
Ah, good observation! The 2nd rocker is there, just out of sight. The porch is L-shaped and it is back in the corner. Pig Farmer raised pigs as a kid and he is fascinated with them. We used to have show pigs – but with the kids older now, we decided to switch to the best for meat quality. Goats – Boer goats are meat goats. My two were an experiment to see if we enjoyed them (YES!) … now we will get does and raise our own. We’ll keep females to expand and sell the males.
Don’t goats get ornery just like some chickens? If you have does, won’t you have to milk them? You gonna make cheese?
I am sure they have that capability (especially un-castrated males), but my research shows that, as a whole, Boer goats have good dispositions. Boer goats are meat goats not dairy goats. No milking needed!
Well, that was educational!
The landscaping looks great – doesn’t it feel good to have that all done?
OH my ! Does it ever. Thanks!
Love the landscaping. And the pigs are adorable even if they are quality meat lol
Thank you! These pigs will at least be on the production end of things. It will be when the gilt (sow) has piglets that I don’t want to get attached! 😉
Nice fence! The landscaping looks good, as does your buddy, Hunter. Bert and Bernice, like the names. Pigs have such cute faces.
It was fun seeing your place! A goat proof fence is always a big job, ever so worth it!
We are hoping it is goat-proof! Thanks for checking in.
