I once had a pig drown in one of our ponds...put it in our huge compost pile. The heat cooked it and the proteins broke down real fast. that part of the compost got really really hot. Did not smell anymore after about a week.
So i have been trying to find a list of medicinal plants for pigs, especially out of the ordinary that may not be going in my specific plot. So if you have any experience or suggestions i would love to hear them. I currently reside in northwest al.
We have started to sell organic feed for the locals in north Alabama. We have swine food which is all milled and not heat treated, smells amazing. we also have chicken, horse and cow feed as well. We have started to feed our kunekune and American guinea hogs the feed, and i know that they are pigs, and pigs will eat anything but its amazing to see the difference between this feed and other organic feed. Extra care was taken to make this.
feel free to contact me through our website. Hogontherange.com
Our evolving farm is located north of Shoals Creek in beautiful Florence, Alabama. Natives of the west coast, our family relocated to Alabama to pursue a dream of a more quiet and sustainable life. After two diagnoses of autoimmune and neurological disease within our family, we decided to strive for a more natural diet free of pesticides, additives and GMOs. Initially, our farm was set up to provide food for just our family, but after much interest from our friends, family and community concerning our choices of livestock, farming methods and sustainability, we decided to open up our farm to all who are interested and create a small business. We are always learning about new breeds and farming methodologies. Currently, we pasture raise heritage breed hogs, chickens and specialty breed rabbits using organic practices to provide a source of sustainable and local food for the community. Be sure to check out our For Sale page to see available livestock. If you have questions about our farm, please contact us! We love to share our ideas and hear from others who are into sustainable food. Our happy hogs love visitors, so come see us – just don’t forget the carrots!
Sounds like its time to schedule another meetup. What days are best for everyone? Please list 2 if you can. I am free most anyday weekend and during the week..besides sunday. My preference is a weekday so please mention your location and willingness to travel. Lastly mention your prefence for a lunch establishment or should we head to someones place?
Martha, I love your idea. I think, this (rumors) will give us a chance to meet everyone, so you dont have a bunch of permie goofballs, running around your place. However, i think on sautday we should talk about planning another outing...and since your apt to volunteer (martha), maybe we can head to your place.
till then lets all try to meet at rumors at 11:00.
Great. So far that is 4 total (one pm). Since i am in the waay north and we have one in bham...maybe we can meet in between. I know a couple of places out in cullman that are pretty good lunch spots if that sounds like a decent mid point for everyone.
Ok...so i mentioned a meetup. I am looking to get a bit more serious so i started a thread about it. go over there post your location and days/times that are best for you...then we can all make a decision on where to meet. I suggest maybe a lunch or something.
So I see several people in North alabama...anyone near florence (north alabama)? Would love to maybe start a group that meets ever so often to share advice and maybe see about helping one another out. Any takers?
