The start of your Bacon sandwich

We take pigs in at the farm from a month old.There could be 300-1000 at a time. They stay for 8 weeks.It isn't often we get any other colours than white. They come on a bed and breakfast basis. Dont worry they are not at this side of the road so you dont smell them. We supply them with a shed with lots of straw in and the water to drink. The supplier has a mill and bring their food. It is stored in a large bin holding about 5 tons of meal. Nicholas uses a loadr tractor to transfers the meal into a feed hopper. They are feed

ad-lib. They leave the farm after 8 weeks and go to another farm where they are fattened up before they got to the abattoir
