    That's a glorious sight, eh? Especially since there's two whole bellies there to be done; the food of the gods! :)

    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.
    nice fridge.............
