Over the last year my family and I embarked on a journey into new territory. We took on the task of raising pigs for the first time. I want to take a second to say a few things and hopefully inspire others to take the leap for themselves.
Thank You to Brandon and his family over at http://www.farmsteadmeatsmith.com/ for producing the videos that inspired me and my family to decide to bring pigs into our lives. The way you and your team have taken the art of butchery and interwoven it with history and story telling was exactly what I needed to push me other the edge. Your work very accurately showed the beauty that can be experienced through respect and good management. From the bottom of my heart, Thank You.
Thank You Walter and Family over at http://sugarmtnfarm.com/ . Your knowledge base and expertise here on permies as well as through email conversations made all the difference in my approach to raising pigs. I really appreciate the wealth of information you have and the extra care you take in making sure people are well informed. When my efforts failed to find a trustworthy and knowledgeable local farmer from which to purchase my piglets, I had no qualms about driving out to VT to buy them from you and your family. I'm glad I did. Thank you for all of you help throughout the season. It's made a world of difference for my family and our land.
