Best Pork!!!

Slaughtered some of our AGHs (American Guinea Hogs) this weekend. These pigs are some of the best pork you will ever eat. It is so delicious. There really is no way to explain it till you try it yourself.  These guys come out with the family dinner size hams, shoulders, ribs, etc. for approximately a family of four.

On a side note we are registered AGH breeders and almost always have hogs for sell. Feel free to contact us.

 

This one never made it to the freezer. It went straight to the BBQ pit. We just could not wait to eat one and after butchering a few of these guys we are gonna have an appetite worked up like a big grizzly bear.

New Born American Guinea Hogs

These piglets are less than two hours old in this video. They are some of the most docile, disease resistant, self sufficient, loveable, climate tolerant, do well on pasture, etc. pigs you will ever find. You couldn’t ask for a better pig on your homestead. If you have a homestead and are wanting to be self sufficient these guys are for you. We almost always have pigs for sale. Feel free to contact us with questions. We are registered breeders. Located in South Texas.

 

 

Spending time with our AGH boar

Ernie is just a big baby. He is so spoiled and loves to be scratched. We enjoy spending time with our animals. They need to have a happy life and we do what we can. If you are at all interested in buying any American Guinea Hogs we are registered breeders with registered stock and almost always have some for sale.

 

Compost and pigs

We decided to do something different with our compost area. Figured we would let our little boar piglets turn the compost for us. Here you can see one of our compost turners.

Things are much easier when you have help. Let your animals work for you. They will actually enjoy it and you will get more work done in a shorter amount of time.

Enjoying time with our animals.

Kids enjoying petting the rabbits and pigs. Notice they are petting a sow in one of the pictures and the boar just walked up plopped down and laid his head in her lap wanting to be petted also.

Pig Feed trough

We decided the pigs needed a feed trough of some sort. After gathering some cedar fence pickets and squaring off the dog eared ends with a skill saw. We got out a trim gun and nailed them together. There was no plans or thought put in to it. It was just thrown together. Now from here we can see what we like or dont like for the next one we build. We will see how our prototype works before we build another or change the design.

Picking up left over produce / compost.

One of the ways we get feed for our animals is to pick up left over produce or what some call compost. There is always all kind of goodies for the animals. We feed this to all of our animals, but do have to be careful depending on what we are giving to which animal. This is a great way to cut feed cost, mingle with great people, spread the word about local farming, and just get a quick break from the farm.

 

Full load of goodies for the animals. The hog will be eating high on the hog tonight.

Loading the goodies in the tractor to distribute to all the animals. Our tractor has to be on of the most useful tools we have. Its like having 20 more people working for us. The Mahindra 4wd 4025 model is what we have and we love it.

We always have to be thankful for our kids because they always lend us a helping hand. Kids love animals and what better reward for them, but to spend time feeding and watering animals. there is always entertainment watching the chickens peck.
