Pastured Pigs and Pastured Turkeys

In Uncategorized on July 29, 2009 at 12:33 pm

The beauty of pasturing pigs is that they are always happy. I mean, very, very happy. They are living the life that they want to: being naturally inquisitive, and doing natural rooting of the earth and making up their own fun activities like creating muddy wallows and playing tag. Pasturing pigs provides them with the resources and freedom that I only see when I am on vacation. The same with the pastured turkey. They are a little less inquisitive, and far less destructive to the pasture, though their feet do pound the ground pretty flat after a while.
Both the pigs and the turkeys are heritage breeds, so our animals in 2009, are being provided the life that their ancestors had back a few hundred years– isn’t that neat?
Imagine the pigs during the Civil War, or the pigs during the American Revolution largely having the same life then as today” healthy plants, pasture and water. Time travel, courtesy of your local farmer. đŸ™‚
