The babies are here.

It is always an exciting time when another batch of baby pigs arrive on the farm. We have had such demand for orders, a seventh pig snuck into the batch.

This year we decided to go with a little sturdier shelter for the babies. We generally have them stay in the garden while they are small. This helps turn over the ground and it allows us the keep an eye on them from the house. In previous years we have taken hay bales and put a tarp over the top for a shelter since they are not in it for a super long time. This year we ran into a vendor at the Minnesota State Fair that had these plastic shelters. We purchased one that was uncut and it has been great.
