|We were not expecting snow when we went out to begin morning chores today. Sometime after 5 a.m. it began coming down and is still falling. Only yesterday it was finally warm enough to melt the last batch of snow. Here we go again!|

It didn't take the 5 Kunekune any time at all to adjust to their new home on pasture. They are enjoying the "salad bar" surrounding their Hawg Haus.
|Home with a bluebird house in the yard.|
|The Hawg Haus is equipped with a water storage tank and solar collector to charge the battery which provides the electricity for the fencing.|
|Chomp, chomp, yum!|
|The goats and dogs were fascinated by their new neighbors, but not for long.|

The Kunekunes are here! Charlie drove to Virginia yesterday to collect our five pigs. Unlike other breeds of pig, Kunekune are vegetarian and can be raised on pasture without supplemental grain.

Visitors to the farm are always willing to pitch in and help with routine chores or whatever project is currently underway. Laurie and Brian have been here doing just that the past few days and we are very grateful.
|Brian helped Charlie with the Hawg Haus. The roof is almost complete.|

Charlie has been working away on the portable piggy pens he's designing & building in preparation for the KuneKune pigs we've purchased. While Jonathan was visiting he helped with the construction of the first one and named the structure "Hawg Haus."

|Two days later. Brian just arrived so the work that requires 4 hands can resume.|
