We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to take care of piggy chores a couple days ago. Our Meishan sow, Sweetpea, gave birth to her second litter. All black, one waddled, and so healthy. We’re thinking we’re going to call these blends Keishans. Mune Mune is odd.
We just harvested one of her piglets from last year, a Meishan xx Berkshire cross, during our class with the Farmstead Meatsmith. The pork has been delicious – ZERO boar taint.
Sweetpea’s a great mama and her piglets look good!
