Lorna and Chris raise pigs at Grassy Gnome Acres.
The pigs are fed certified organic feed and spend their whole lives outdoors.
Being the rather fair-weather creatures that they are, they prefer to lounge in their shelter during the heat of the summer or on rainy days, but eventually, their curiosity gets the better of them and they go out to root and graze.
Variety Packs: $9.50 per pound. Available in approximately 23 to 35lb packs from Vale Farms.
