Pigs

Our heritage breed Red Wattle pigs are sourced from Hindsight Heritage farm in southern MN.  Theresa at Hindsight Heritage has a fantastic love for these old breeds and has worked to develop a hardy strain of pigs that lives outdoors year-round and does not need a barn to survive winters.  The pigs are used to consume large amounts of vegetation in problem areas on our pasture.  They work as bulldozers to rough up the soil organically.  This allows us to follow behind them with any number of seeds.  We are experimenting in 2018 with prairie restoration seed mixes as well as pasture forage supplements to identify what works best for the land, the animals, and the farm.
