Large Black Sow
We're getting pigs!!!! Greg and I are going to be getting 5 Large Black/ Berkshire heritage cross piglets on July 1st, and we can't wait!! It took us forever to find piglets but we lucked out and found the perfect cross heritage breed. Our neighbor Deborah Evans breeds and raises large black crosses but unfortunately we are getting our piglets from someone else, hers are all going to the butcher. We stopped by her farm last week and got to see her beautiful animals. She has the best dogs!! They're Australian shepherds and they were so friendly and cuddly. I couldn't get enough of them. She has quite the operation over there. She's raising so many animals, a herd of different breeds of goats, sheep who've just had the cutest baby lambs ever, guinea hens, 2 donkeys, 1 llama, 3 dogs, 3 large black sows, 11 5 month old Lg black/ Tamworth piglets, and a brand new litter of 8 Lg black/ berkshire piglets. They had just been born that morning when we stopped by. It was quite a sight to see and her farm is beautiful. Her property is located right across Smith Cove from Castine. It was beautiful. Here are some shots of her animals and farm.
