Yesterday we harvested one of our Tamworth pigs. This was a first for us and we were very thankfull that it went so well. The only real mishap was getting shocked by the electric fence. It only went so well because we had some great help from our friends; Sandra, Tiffany, Kory, and Judy from Atlanta Farm to Fork who took the following photos. Warning, real life happens in these pictures. If you don’t want to see how we get healthy sustainable meat from pasture raised animals, you might want to leave now.
From here the carcass was placed in a large cooler, we salted it and covered it with ice. 24 hours later we will be smoking!
