New Piglets at Growing the Future

Posted under Eco-Tourism Blog by Grootbos on 23rd October 2012

Growing the Future's beloved sow, Scratchy, gave birth to five healthy little piglets over the weekend! Staff and students are delighted with the new additions to our little farm.

Our free-range pigs generate an income to the project, prepare our land and we use their manure in our composting process. Our pigs are fed (spoiled) with both high nutritional organic feed and leftovers from the kitchen and harvesting, something they thoroughly enjoy! Here are a few shot of mother Scratchy with her 5 little ones.
