Molly, I have been picking people's brains about raising pigs, since we may or may not this year on our farm. What people tell me is that feeding them is the most time and money intensive part of pig raising, most ended up driving to several farms and/or grocery stores every day to pick up leftover produce. We have been researching planting fodder crops (such as turnips, beets, rutabegas, kale, etc) and if you have enough space and moveable or electric fencing, you could let those crops grow and then run the pigs through them. Pigs LOVE to dig up roots and eat them. Also... author Joel Salatin writes a lot about raising pigs and using them for many farming tasks (ie: turning compost, sealing ponds) so I would recommend his books-- some of them available at our county library system.

I might come get that fridge from you this week!  If you could email me your address and/or phone #, my email is chrisandbella@yahoo, and my phone is 961-9028. Thanks so much!

Does any one know 1st hand about raising pigs? Have loved the ones I knew in the past but would love some present day comments or advise.

Does anyone have an omega or champion juicer that they have used to make nut butter with or to grind flour with? I have read that these masceration  type of juicers also grind. Before I buy one I'd like to know how well they work for grinding nuts or grains. I know they are good for juicing.

Also I'd be interested in borrowing an omega or champion juicer for a week to make juice. Can anyone loan me one?

Thanks,

Angela

Hi Chris we have a frig you could have it is old but works. I have no way to get it to you. veggies or eggs would be nice but not required. We are in the Laural district. Tell me what you think

Comment by Chris Wolf on March 10, 2012 at 11:14am

Hello friends... There are several things we need as we are starting our small farm business here at Riverhaven: (1) A refrigerator for storing eggs, (2) A 10x10 foot collapsable canopy for using at the Lynden Farmer's Market, and (3) Some long collapsable tables for setting up at the farmer's market. We would appreciate donations of these items to support our new local farm, or could trade you veggies and pastured eggs, and/or some cash if you require that. Thanks! -Chris Wolf and Krista Rome

Looks like the coops have been "adopted", much to the delight of the person who unwillingly inherited them!

Comment by Sandy Hoelterhoff on March 6, 2012 at 8:18pm

We are just about to start building a coop and would be interested.

Comment by Jean Kroll on March 4, 2012 at 9:02pm

Anyone seeking a chicken coop?  If so, I'll put you in touch with someone who has one to give way (there might be two of them)
