It's Piglets !
Charlotte gifted us with 9 piglets on April 19th after a long and
arduous labor. We have 5 boars(boys) and 4 gilts (girls)
We have 4 weaner/feeder pigs available in 6 weeks We are now
accepting deposits on them, they are $300.00 each. Please email
quickly as they go fast !
Available with paypal at our "store" boars/barrows/gilts.
Additional requirements and costs
To purchase a weaner pig you must reserve in advance with a $100
deposit per piglet.
The picks of the litters are in the order we receive deposits.
Pigs are due to be picked up within 5 days of pick-up date which is
at 7 weeks old for weaner piglets. Customers that need us to hold
their pig past 5 days will need to pay a daily boarding fee for
organic feed and straw.
Customers who want to haul pigs across state lines are responsible
for travel permits, costs $55 per load, and vet inspection fee
(split evenly amongst the out-of-state customers who are buying at
the time). We are happy to arrange all necessary paperwork.

We are keeping them close to us until they get a little bigger.
But they have oat grass and plenty of sun and room to roam.
A peasant becomes fond of his pig and is glad to salt away its
pork. What is significant, and is so difficult for the urban stranger
to understand, is that the two statements in that sentence are connected by
an "and" and not by a "but."

The Exceptional Taste of the Large Black Hog
The pork is lean yet micro-marbled for a moist product on the grill or in the
oven. The texture of the pork is extra tender due to the short muscle fibers
which has earned it a place in some of the most exclusive restaurants in New
York and Europe. The meat is slightly darker in color with an old world flavor.
Large Black Hogs are also famous for their exceptional bacon.
