Alright, this blog took a major down turn this summer (as in, I neglected to post anything for months). Suffice it to say, I learned that farming July – September can be fairly miserable. There are a ton of posts that will be going up in the coming weeks to get caught back up on our travails over here. We’re also working on a farm website (lochhollandfarm.com – coming soon!), updated social media, etc, etc. In the meantime, we’ve produced some pork. If you would like to purchase it, I would be happy to accept most forms of currency.

About our pork
Currently, we raise two types of heritage breed pigs, Red Wattle crosses and Gloucestershire Old Spots. Our pigs are raised on a mixture of pasture and woodland, and are moved to fresh forage about once per week. We also feed crushed or fermented grain (depending on availability), some hay, fresh whey and whatever leftover fruit and spent grains (from beer brewing) we can get our hands on. We practice multi-species rotational grazing, so that our pigs, goats, and chickens work together to help manage our pastures (and each other’s diets) more efficiently.
