Put Your Pig Pants On
As a kid my nickname was Stinky. My sister still calls me that in fact. But Stinky would be an appropriate nickname for me here at ARI because one of my duties on the farm is working with the pigs. It has been great learning and a lot of fun even if Anna says I need to wash my clothes twice daily. We've got around 50 pigs at any given time and after butchering the meat comes back to the ARI kitchen to feed the community.
I have enjoyed working with these animals and more than a few times I have remembered the creation story: And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so.
Here are few pictures giving the lowdown on what I have been up to in the pig pen.
