We have a boar and sow known as Bugsy and Rita, who are expressing their piggy-ness, and becoming members of the team that tend the land at The Crossing: turning the soil, fertilising and weeding, keeping the bracken and brambles from encroaching on the pasture.
The piglets are busy at their work. Would you like to co-own a pig? Join the Pig Club. They enjoy a diet of sprouted beans and barley. We are grateful to Seasons the Organic Grocers in the village who give us all their spoiled produce. These have to be the best fed pigs in town.
Kune Kune Pigs, originally from New Zealand, are a small breed and very easy to manage. If you like the sound of this project and would like to be involved, do get in touch with Emma 07976 296 364. Co-own a pig, we take care of them, you can visit your pig, you can learn how to butcher and preserve: make bacon and sausages.
