Hog Coming

My sister-in-law had one of her hogs butchered a few weeks ago and our half is finally ready for pick-up!  Mmm, chops and bacon and sausage and roast.  This will get us through the summer BBQ season nicely.


  1. Can't wait to hear about the difference in flavor of your pork and conventional pork!

  2. Well, this is our second home-raised pig and I think it's a huge difference, both in flavor and also in how fatty the meat is. My SILs hogs got exercise, because they were pastured for a portion of each day, so the meat is much more lean, which I like! But some people actually prefer their bacon a little fattier, although I personally like it better.
