Our two British Lop pigs are getting big – very big. They are off to the abattoir next Monday morning, but meanwhile they are having a great time sunbathing, rooting around, hanging out with chickens and enjoying the lovely autumn weather we are having. We are hoping to have our pig made into sausages and bacon and packed by the butcher. We will then start to sell these from the smallholding – all very exciting. I am currently trying to sort out the relevant regulations as we want to make sure we do everything properly. We have already bought our commercial grade freezer so hopefully we have everything in place to provide people with very local, very happy pork.
