Sandy Hall wrote:Hey John! Sorry for the slow reply, things have been hectic I have Ossabaw Island Hogs. They're a small (150-200lbs) heritage breed listed as critical by the Livestock Conservancy and are also listed on the Slow Food Ark of Taste. They're lovely, hardy foragers and I'm hoping to start offering a small number of piglets beginning next spring.

Thanks Sandy!
I hope sometime next year to have an arrangement on our land where I can accomadate a few. We'll see how it goes and maybe we can do some business.

I ran across this link for "The Future of Food" an awesome documentary film. I would rate it as one of the best I've seen on the subject matter.
By following the above link you will be able to watch the film for FREE until OCTOBER 17th
I'm looking for a source for Alfalfa hay near central West Virginia. Anybody know a source?
I think it's a great idea. Let us know which phone apps you like.
I'm in WV, so naturally, Flora of West Virginia by Strausbaugh and Core is my go-to for the most detailed descriptions.

Curious how you process the acorns for your hens and if you've noted any change in egg quality or production? I have yet to see my hens attempt to eat an acorn.
