Well, as you can maybe surmise by my previous posts is the pig project mostly failed. but not for trying.
After spending time reflecting on just went wrong I have distilled it down to 3 conditions
1. Expensive feed: I was not able to procure enough cheap feed like many other pork producers do.
2. Got in to Pig Breeding/ Rasing instead of starting slow and just rasing feeders.
3. Transportation. After the Truck broke down, I was spending so much money on feed that I could never get enough money to get the truck fixed... Everything spiraled down from there.
On the upside, the pigs did a fabioulous job of clearing the land so there's that.
I have now decided to get started (slowly) into the garden market business.
I just started learning the strategies from Curtis Stone, you can find out more about Curtis on
I am currently taking his online course and hope to replicate what he has done but on a smaller scale
his plan is based on a 1/4 acre..... more to come
