We made it through our very first Potter-Tioga Maple Weekend and even though we weren't on the map, we had a fair amount of visitors.
It was so interesting to talk to everyone about the maple process and the visitor's kids really enjoyed going around to visit the horses, pigs and piglets, chickens and ducks, and turkeys. The horses loved all the extra treats they got from their visitors and the turkeys were happy to have an audience to whom they could strut their stuff and show off. The piglets were, of course, a hit. They provided lots of entertainment as they ran and chased one another.
As we were preparing the sugar house for this past weekend, we said that even if no one showed up we would have the sugar house all clean and organized. It was a win-win!
We sold two meat piglets during the weekend. Out of this litter we felt that two piglets really stood out - a gilt and a boar. The absolutely beautiful gilt and a meat piglet are sold for pick up this weekend. We are keeping two meat piglets to raise ourselves and I'm contacting the other people who were interested in meat piglets about the other two.
That leaves this black and white boar. He's really something special and we hate to castrate him for meat. He's a big boy with great body shape and the short nose we want. So, if someone wants to get into Idaho Pasture Pigs, this is the boar you want. Please contact me via the link on the upper right hand side.
