Our posse of pigs has it made in the shade on our farm in Jackson, Maine. They move to a fresh woodland meadow paddock every three days, where they chow down on spent brewers’ grain (solid beer!) and the abundant roots, greens, and bugs of the pasture. Their days consist of rooting, grazing, playing, socializing, and many long naps in the shade. Though the porcine enjoyment described may sound like it’s all fun and games, the pigs actually do an important job for us – the first step to reclaiming the pastures of the Great Farm! They use their faces like plows to till the ground we then seed to grass and clover. Our diligent workin’ pigs deserve their brewers’ grain and naps – they’ve earned it!
