Yes, Yes, Yes, You Should Have Pigs!

Candi JohnsI know not everyone has the space to raise their own animals.

I know how blessed I am to have the choice to raise my own meat.

If you live on a little piece of land without a HOA bringing you down — you should go get yourself a couple feeder pigs to raise.

Spring is in the air and that means that there are spring piglets for sale if you know where to look.  


The pig is often overlooked as a homestead animal because of their smell and lack of tidiness. We have raised pigs for years and I can tell you that pigs are great. To avoid the smell just be sure they have enough room to spread out and put the pig area downwind from your house. The mess can be a blessing if you plan it right. Just put those piggies on your future garden spot and you'll love them for prepping the land for you!
