Last summer we bought three baby pigs when they were they were about eight weeks old. They were so cute and we had quite the adventure getting started with them. Once we got them all settled in, raising them to butcher weight was very easy. We kept them in a large wooded area with electric fence. They enjoyed rooting around, eating grubs, acorns, and any other goodies they could find. We provided them with plenty of table scraps, whey, and soaked non-gmo/soy-free grains. They were happy, grew well, and got nice and fat.
