Many moons ago, I read about a fellow who was buying bred sows and turning them into a swampy area to raise their litter.  He sold everything each fall and started over in the spring.   Seems as if he was in Missouri.  The fellow had a national reputation for promoting natural farming practices rather than chemical based.  Maybe his farm was called Shangri La?  

HELP!!!

Are you looking for this gentleman? Or are you looking for information someone might have about him, or his methods? I'm not quite sure what assistance you're seeking.

I'm sorry Miz Carla!  I'm looking for info about him.  I'm sure he's been dead 50 years.

Lol! Well, I'm sure he - and his family - would be unhappy, if you disturbed him, at this point! So, information about him & his method, then? Hopefully someone here, can help you, with that. 😁
