Six piglets joined us Friday on Antiquity Oaks. Like all pigs we've had so far, they're Tamworth, which is a heritage breed. There are three gilts (girls) and three barrows (castrated boys). They'll all become pork in the fall.
Although they have the entire walnut grove to run around, they're a little scared about being in a new place, so they're spending a lot of time in their shelter. We keep them in the walnut grove because black walnut hulls are a natural dewormer, and walnuts make a great protein source.
