New Pasture for Our Hogs

On February 6th, we moved some of our gilts and barrows into the pasture above. It's carpeted with lush green grass and bordered by oak and black walnut trees. The pigs spend a good time of their day foraging on the grass and rooting for acorns and walnuts. 

Our hogs do eat organic grain feed, but they appear to be instinctively searching for fallen acorns and black walnuts. It's a thrill for us to watch our pigs be pigs!
