As the darkness of winter recedes and spring comes, so too will piglets. Two Dog Farm will start the pigs just as Vermont’s infamous mud season opens. I suppose there’s no better time to get some pigs then when there’s already mud everywhere. The animals will have the freedom to roam the pasture at will, though their diet will be made up in part by grain to insure their nutritional needs are met. Two Dog Farm is also planning on having the pigs forage on a field of sown root crops to experiment with some alternative feed options. The pigs will be ready in late summer into fall, and will be available through our CSA. As with the beef, pork will be available in shares ranging from a whole animal (approx. 130 lb.) to a quarter of animal (approx. 40lb.).
