Some of you will know that the past 6 months have been to say the least traumatic here. Alfie had a major heart attack back at the beginning of October. The recovery process has not been totally smooth, with many set backs along the way. He had his most recent heart surgery just 2 weeks ago, and so far this seems to have worked, but we won’t know for certain until mid-May.
As you can imagine all of this has played havoc with pig farming and pork sales.
We ran out of pork supplies around Christmas.
Thankfully we had been in the process of re-stocking and introducing new stock when the first heart attack struck, so had reduced stock to just 2 sows.
All of this has led us to re-evaluate our lives and examine how we can best continue doing something we enjoy, but with a lower stress level!
We are sharing our thoughts here, and hoping you will give us your input, please!
Our plan is to restructure how we sell the pork, rather than selling pork boxes in 4 kg. boxes.
Our questions to you…
Would you pre-order a full or half of a pig? A full pig would be approx. 60 kgs.
Would you commit to doing so in advance? You would be given a date – in October/November – when your meat would be ready.
We would grow the pig ethically, organically and free-range for you. You would receive your meat butchered and freezer ready.
We would love to hear your opinion and thoughts as to whether this is something you would consider.
