Using larch planks milled on site we set to work building a two sided pig sty with a couple of dry areas and a small pen. The pigs have access to a vary large area of ground which will ultimately become a horticultural area. They are clearing the the site with their natural rooting behaviours.
We have five pigs, three female and two males. They are an excellent addition to the site and they have proved to be a fantastic addition to the learning experience at the farm. Students have learned to build the accomodation, fencing, water supply and feeding station. They also understand that the final destination for the pigs will be as food in the kitchen.
