Last week we took the two young boars off in a trailer and this today they came back in a couple of cardboard boxes.
How to fit two pigs in the back of a car!
They weighed in at 37kg and 38.9kg. Pretty small, but I expected that given that they are a mix of traditional, slow-growing breeds and they had to go off at just under six months old to avoid boar taint.
I am pleased with the meat though. Not too much fat at all, but enough to give it succulence and moisture.
This is how the meat comes back from the butcher.
All I have to do is price it up and put it in the freezer.
I have used a new butcher this time around, Tan Rose in Parson Drove, and they have made a very careful job of their work. I have also gone for smaller joints and packs of meat as most of my customers are couples for whom a large lump of meat is just too much.

Tonight we'll be eating fresh liver, a lovely part of the pig all the better for being fresh. I can't wait to try the sausages too. Maybe for breakfast tomorrow.

And if anybody local wants to try some too, just pop in to the farm.
Here's our pricelist.
