Swabian Hall Piglets

What is better than baby pigs? Nothing. That’s what! After our sows have given birth, the mommas and babies stay in their farrowing huts to catch up on some much needed sleep and bonding time. Once the babies are strong enough (at about 4 days old), they’re free to “walk about the cabin” as it were and start socializing with the rest of the herd in the pasture.¬†Even at one day old, they already have so much personality and energy! As soon as they’re able to start eating solid food, we give them a healthy diet of recycled produce (their favorites are strawberries, watermelons and tomatoes) along with whatever they can gleam off the land.
