An attempt to declare the Glory of God for what He has chosen to do with our lives. A legacy to leave to my children in the telling of it.

P-O-R-K

These cute little piglets from this spring have grown into big porkers. Three of the six pigs were shipped a few weeks ago weighing over 250# each and the other three will be shipped this week. We will keep 2 of them for our family and the others we have standing orders for with a waiting list for more if we wanted to raise them. Being Rob works at the dairy he is able to bring home cheese scraps and whey occasionally to supplement with the feed, food scraps, and hay which makes for some good pork chops, and ham, and sausage, and bacon.
