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.

That'll do, Pig

Its time for a pork update... behold the bacon:

Are these some monster hogs or what!? And can you see the long and low belly on these guys? That's bacon friends.

We've moved them into the "new" goat yard due to complaints by the union of mistreatment and the constant screaming by Nibbles. More on this later but the porkers are doing a great job of hogging down their new space. And we don't have to put out as much feed. They are happier than pigz in... well... mud and lots of free eats.

Would you just LOOK at the loins on these guys? Wow oh wow are we gonna have amazing chops.

All we need is a couple of cold nights and all our pork dreams will come true. Thanks again to D. at Springhill Farms for these amazing bacons. Remember if you are in Central Ohio and can't raise your own... give them a call to get your box of pork heaven.

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea for you to raise your own stock!. I'd save up for it.

Hey Ginny! Arent they beautiful? I can't wait to see the chops and the hams are probably gonna be too big for me to carry!

Thanks Jeff! And yep - they are "yumilus" for sure!

Aint that right, CC! ha!

Hey Dave - we'll probably butcher early in Nov. But really if we get a couple of cold nights in a row they will be "bacon walking" for sure.

Those pigs are coming along nice. I love being able to see how they turn out. So many times they leave here and even though folks tell me how great they turned out a picture is worth a thousand words! I can't wait to see the hams. That's an area we have worked on upgrading since Tamworth traditionally have smaller tapered hams. Thanks for the update.
