Pork Loin

We picked up our pigs from the bitcher yesterday.  These animals were pasture raised and finished on apples and barley.  I decided to cook up a loin for dinner tonight.  This meat needs no gilding; just a bit of salt and pepper.

We picked the pumpkin patch today and moved Eva's piglets in to clean things up. #heritagebreeds #heritageseeds

Healed up

Stinky Roger dislocated his ankle about 11 weeks ago so mike set it back in the socket and casted him up. The vet said a dislocation takes quite a bit longer to heal than a broken bone so we waited until now to check it. We cut the cast off today and it looks perfect! Not even a rub sore or hair loss. We decided to wrap it back up with fresh gauze and put the old cast back on as a sort of sandwich splint. We'll leave it on  another month or so just to be sure it's well healed before removing it for good. #nigeriandwarf #tcb

Moved the 16 toddlers down to their new big pen on the lower ranch this morning. They are "digging" it. #mangalitsa #oldworldpigs #gourmetpork

There are always a lot of wagging curly Qs at dinner time. #mangalitsa #woolypigs
