pig barn tour

Here's a little video I did this morning, between the rain showers, of our pig barn. My husband built this about a year ago.




One thing that I forgot to add in the video was that we made the floor out of wood instead of cement. I believe that most folks use cement because it is much easier to clean. We have an abundance of lumber here though (hubby being in the tree business and all) so it was NOT cost effective for us to pour a cement slab.
Also, the window in the barn was recycled. A contractor friend of Gavin's had a bunch of windows that he had removed from homes that were just up for grabs!
We're hoping that by raising hogs now from May-September that we won't be dealing with the amount of mud that we had to by raising them last fall and into winter.


Hope that you enjoy the video!

We want to do pigs SO badly..in due time. :)I agree, you need to post pictures of your pigs once you have them. :)

Enjoyed the video and will look forward to seeing the new pigs. We built a little barn and raised
a few pigs to sell about 20-25years ago. Baby pigs are soooo cute!

Getting ready to bring the piggies home is so exciting!! I can't believe how fast they grow! Ours are getting huge! I have visions of bacon dancing around in my head and they can't be ready soon enough because we ran out a few weeks ago :(

Running out of bacon is so NOT o.k. ;)
