We are welcoming the newest addition to our farm. Lily is our new sow and is due to farrow in mid April. She will farrow without a farrowing crate and has done this successfully in the past. Lily is gentle and loves to have her ears and belly rubbed. Her favorite treat is egg bagels.
This is our first sow. Up to now we have been purchasing feeder pigs from local farmers that we have raised for our pork.
We are very happy to have Lily as she allows us to take the next steps toward sustainability, self sufficiency and animal welfare. We will be especially excited to see her farrow without being confined to a crate.
