Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Pigs are here...

...and I hate them already. Here they are:
Stinkin' it up already...dang! I hates me them pigs.

The goats hate the pigs too -- here is their reaction, priceless:

The welcoming committee was anything but....

The pigs have been here a couple weeks but due to a lot of unscheduled ridiculousness... I haven't been able to catch you up on their goin's on.

So, thus starts a series called, "How to Get Pigs, Raise Them Up, Butcher Them, and Fry Them Up In A Pan."

First entry: Pig hatefulness: I hate pigs - everything about them except they are just bacon on legs.

Stay tuned - more to come but for now I think we are headed out to dress turkeys.

Happy Monday!

I'm also not a pig lover, unless they are witty bitty bottle baby pigs and then you can't help but fall in love. Otherwise you are right, they are just walking pork chops and I can't wait to butcher them! We don't keep them anymore and I'm really glad! ;)

Hey, how come they don't have the cute curly wool like hair you have been dreaming of?

I can't wait until you get to the part about how to disguise their particular fragrance.

Hi GW! I left you a comment. Hope you are well. And nope, I don't even love the little ones.

SOMEONE (you know who you are) is bottle feeding a witty bitty one... we only said that we had a hoagie roll that was about the right size for the worlds smallest hog roast. HA!

Chai Chai:
AAAAAAAGHGHAHHAHAHAHHGHHGHGHGHHHG

thanks a lot. Now the nightmares will start again... yikes!

BR - The only pork rescue around here is when I drop a slice of bacon and have to fight the dogs over. HA! Oh piggy piggy piggy pie... let me count the ways I hate your squinty eye...

Plus them rescuers might need some rescuin' themselves... that electric fence packs a wallop, iffin' you know what I mean.....

Pigs stink. You've got the right of it. All they are good for is bacon on legs. And the ham. Man, I want some ham. :)

Last year we had a little over 76lbs of ham cured and smoked.. I believe we are most of the way thru it. And there are just TWO of us... we loves us the ham, for sure.

Awwww! But they look so pink and cute in the pictures. I bet they would let me pet them...

Ohiofarmgirl said...

Mimi! Get away from them pigs! Right now! Do NOT snuggle the ham!
