Well what a busy time we have had this last week.
Our last lot of three berkshire pigs went to the abattoir.
They arrived home on Saturday, we were very pleased with the fat content especially as we thought they had run a few weeks longer than they needed to.
We kept half a pig, back for our freezer which dad butchered on Sunday. His skills have improved so much! He made a great job of cutting it up.
He also butchered the fallow deer which has been hanging in the fridge the last few weeks.
Whilst dad was busy in the fridge, Gareth, Grandad and me set off to collect our next pigs. Four large blacks from the Rodings Plantery. Thank you Jane and Andy! Lovely pigs!
Whilst Maurice took delivery of his new toy! A snazzy larger rotator.
