last 2 Pigs just came home in Big bits
Just sits in the New Full hight fridge
Our 2 are due for slaughter just before xmas. Most being turned into bacon, salami and sausage
That's a glorious sight, eh? Especially since there's two whole bellies there to be done; the food of the gods!
Parcel some up and post em if you need help disposing of it!
Corrr blimey when can I move in? You'll have a great time polishing that lot off - nout better than pig, tastiest stuff going! Mmmm bacon mmmm you've done well there .
Damn that looks good! Making me feel hungry
Put me down for some Dunc!.
That's proper food!
That is one awesome looking fridge, I am very jealous. Gotta be loving the pig.
yes the Full size chest Freezer and Under counter freezer are almost full with the last 2 so gonna have to cure a fair bit to get it to keep
with pretty much 300Kg we need to eat nearly 6 kg a week to get it gone before the next years piggies are ready
What a wondrous sight!!
Ahhh, nothing better then your own meat. The factory farmed pork stinks. We just slaughtered 2 pigs on monday that my grandfater raised. I'm learning how to slaughter now as he is 75years old and I'll be the next to provide the meat for the family. We found that it's the best to grow pigs for 1,5 year then they get to about 180kg and are excellent meat. When he raised them one season they would be 110-115kg and would not produce nice bacon. well done.
The aspect of growing up on a farm that I value most is turning a pig into food, with my Dad, and some simple tools. It does give you an understanding of and respect for food like nothing else.
and some damn tasty meals.
I think a wee trip up to Lara's' Dads place may be on the cards before Christmas
