New pigs have arrived

We finally have our new batch of piglets. Having just arrived we’ve put them in the stables for a few days until they get used to us and learn where their food comes from. This will make them much easier to move around once they are out and about.

After a couple of escapes from the stables we think we have finally perfected the pig-proof stall and will release them into their new forest home soon. They’ll have about 2 acres of mature woodlot to fossick about in with fresh water and a house to shelter from the weather. The entire perimeter has a snout-height electric wire to keep them safely in the woodlot (and our adjacent gardens safe from them).
