It was time to say goodby to the pigs and lambs at Orchard Cottage. I raise them for home produced pork and lamb for friends and family. It’s always sad to see them go but they all had a very happy life in the orchard.
Cuthbert, the ram, will be joining the Hebridean ewes in a week and will spend winter with them under the apple trees. Hopefully his lambs will be born over the Easter holiday. In April I will also pick up the new pigs, usually at 8-10 weeks old. Spring is a great time to visit and meet the new babies.
