Weaned and ready for pasture!

This year’s first litter of piglets is just over 8 weeks old, weaned today, and they’re ready to head out to the pastures that are flush with Spring!

We were a little worried how Wilhelmine would react to the end of nursing, but as always, she took it like a champ. If anything, she seemed relieved to be done with eight large piglets fighting over her milk. She quietly walked over to her new paddock before the piglets woke up this morning, and promptly fell asleep laying in the sun — and napped for the entire day!

Final reservations and deposits for this litter will be filled in the coming week or two. A $200 deposit secures your pig, with a processing date of mid to late August.

As always, we hope you will come and visit the pigs in the field while they are growing!


Welcome to Hands-on Hogs! In the coming months, we are building the facilities, processes, and this site to share with you the joy of raising, pasturing, and processing your own meat. Learn what it means to care for and ensure a healthy and happy life for an animal, then join us on the farm to learn hands-on how to process and prepare your own meat.
