An exciting morning on the Cromwell Farm today. We were greeted by 12 lovely little Large Black x Berkshire/Hampshire piglets from our Gilt Diesel. And what little black beauties they are – Diesel, girl, you are a star! It must be true that heritage breeds happiness. So happy. A special thanks to mid-wife Linda for the preparation of her hay hotel and for great room service after the delivery.
This picture, taken last night, is pretty cute. I am pretty sure Diesel was looking at these chicken nest boxes we put in and asking herself, “What are these crazy farmers thinking?”
