Celebrate the culture of agriculture & share skills (Growing! Cooking! Eating!)



Meet the newest members of the farm... Two Potbelly Pigs. They are both sows. We are searching for the a suitable husband "hint hint" lol.

We recently acquired these beautiful little piggies from a very nice lady over in Gurdon. They are a little on the hefty side. They look like they age too many jelly beans and peanut butter cups hence their names ha ha ha.

We are currently working on their barn and play area so stay tuned for future posts about them coming up soon. We are also working on their own page too so watch out for the Potbelly Pig link coming soon!!

Follow along as the Potbelly pigs make themselves at home here on the farm and as they grow up and start families of their own. We are "SUPER" excited to have them and look forward to their happiness in the years to come.

If you have Potbelly pigs as part of  your farm family please share them with us. Send pictures or comments and let us know about the wonderful time you have with your pigs. You never know....we may even feature your entries on the "BRAND NEW" Potbelly Pig Page coming soon!!!

Hope everyone has a blessed day and as always...

I know someone who had over weight potbelly's and the Vet said to find a container (A very strong plastic bottle) that they could roll on the ground. Pigs are a grazing animal. Cut a hole in it (just the size of their food kibble) and put their daily food into it. When you go to work, fill the bottle and put it on the ground. They would keep occupied rolling it around, get some exercise and keep busy eating their food that they had to work for.  I do this with my in-door cats. They would prefer to "work the bottle" than eat out of the bowl!

That is an absolutely WONDERFUL idea Ginny!! I will definitely have to try that. The people we got our girls from had a huge bowl of food in their pen and kept it full all the time. I guess they dont realize they are doing their pigs more harm than good by letting them eat all day everyday lol. The day we brought them home their bellies were actually dragging on the ground a little. We have had em about a week or so now and they seem to be doing MUCH better. Thanks again for the great idea.
