And now we wait…

We are ready for our newest additions!!  Next weekend we are picking up our piggies and we are so excited!!  We have planned and planned and built a great place for them to live and play and now we have to wait a whole week…I might just explode. 😉

In the beginning there were over 100 pallets…

And one handsome hubby…

And some good friends…

And some adorable kids…

And some grey, yucky looking pre-spring grass…

And a little extra bracing for some strong pigs….

And a little break for some in dirt playing….

And a ton of screws…

And a hill for extra grazing…

You can huff and puff, this house is going NOWHERE…..

Any pig would be glad to reside here in their 64×22 pen…

Less than $250 for pen and housing…reusing and reclaiming = Green living and happy pigs

And one approving hen awaiting her friends. ❤

There are nay sayers, those who think we are crazy for taking on this responsibility in addition everything else that we do in a day.  The difference is that we WANT to do this.  We want to have a little farm and learn how to grow our own food and sustain ourselves.  I love knowing where most of our food is coming from and that we know how to make and grow our own.  We are always learning and love that about this adventure.

Life is learning, I learned that from my Dad… ❤

  1. My husband and I also recycled things to build our chicken coop and have 10 chickens on our desired little farm (I often feature them and our two dogs in my blog) . Good luck with your new arivals (when they get there). I know how hard it is to wait 😉

    • We love bacon…it that a good enough reason? lol 🙂 It was a bang for our buck, ease of raising and space limitation decision. We don’t have any large outside structures as of yet, so the pigs were a good choice for us. I don’t know much about turkeys, are they a flight risk? We have tons of wild turkeys and they fly high! Next year, maybe bees and meat birds. 🙂 Hopefully I can update the blog on the pigs enough that we might help with your decision. 🙂 Good luck to you!
