Welp, here you go 😂🤣😆 (sound 🔊🔊🔊) It’s #farmvideofriday again, curated by @unconventional_acres! A very disgruntled Ham Solo being encouraged back to his pasture (“But, Ma! The acorns!”). This is also probably the last time we were able to get him off the ground. Since then? 🙅🏼‍♀️ | #rhfarms #heritagebreeds #americanguineahogs #freerange #pastureraised #acornfed #pasturedpork #iamyourfarmer #thefarmerandthefisherman #farmvideos #farming #pigs

The sun came out on Sunday while I was spending time with our #americanguineahogs and this little stinker stole my heart. I watched him stop and drop into a small feed bowl. Swipe right to see how his hind legs didn’t end up in the bowl.... #sweetpigs #homestead #homesteading #livingthedream #slumber #sunsout #heritagebreed #farmlife #farmlifebestlife #pastureraised #greenvillesc #upstatesc #southcarolina #pig #pigs #hog #hogs #pasturedpork #onthefarm #iamcountryside #modernfarmer #adorable #agha #livestockconservancy #americanguineahog #heritagebreed #homesteadersofamerica #loveourpigs #pigsofinstagram

God is so faithful it blows my mind. I shouldn't be surprised. I don't know why I am. Large family life isn't for the faint of heart. Homesteading isn't for the faint of heart. Homeschooling isn't for the faint of heart. How often have you felt like you are not enough. Not patient enough. Not smart enough. Not strong enough. Not financially enough. Not enough. YOU ARE. Through HIM you are everything you need to be. You are equipped to do the works to which He called you. He chose YOU. . . . #rejoiceinthelord #mothering #motherhood #momtomon #momtomany #homesteading #americanguineahogs #hogwild #farmboy #countryliving #countryside

My daughter took this video of our day old american guinea hog piglets this summer. Sweet girl was caught in the middle of a yawn....I think. Nevertheless, it is precious!

It never ceases to amaze me how animals seem to disregard the cold weather! It was 23 degrees this morning and Mama Pig decided to bless us with 7 healthy piglets. Another thing that also amazes me is how the Guinea Hogs will help raise the piglets as a community. It's not uncommon to find a mother of one litter tending to piglets that don't belong to her! I am so glad we started raising this breed. They truly are a great choice for a Homesteader! #pigletsofinstagram #pigstagram #babypiggies #winterbabies #americanguineahogs #homesteadlife #BigBearHomestead

It is difficult to find a superior method of consuming the notably perfect flavor of home canned peaches straight from a quart sized ball jar. Nonetheless, when pig meets peach heavenly things occur that transcend one's preconceived notions of what pie has ever become in this lardless society we've grown accustomed to. #pasturedpork #pasturedlardishealthylard #peachpie 🍑 #homecanning #homesteading #americanguineahogs P.s in deep irony, I find it amusing that these particular pigs ate a great deal of discarded peaches last summer 😂🐖🍑🥧

Our contribution to Sunday night family dinner this week: Diantha’s blueberry pie made from the fruits of our summer labor - homegrown blueberries and pie crust made with lard rendered from one of our #americanguineahogs Reuben. Putting food up for the winter is so very satisfying, but eating and sharing that food with our family and friends is what it’s all about. This is why we do what we do and love what we do. #pie #blueberrypie #lard #castironskillet #homegrown #winterfood #delicious #farmfood #family #knowyourfarmer #knowyourfood

Pigs and chickens - our #1 combo, and I'm not just talking about our bacon and eggs! 🥓 🥚 We're always looking for ways to increase the quality of our animals' health. Sometimes that means combining systems for the benefit of the livestock -- like with our chickens and pigs. They both benefit each other and this arrangement saves us a lot of time, money, and the headache of trying to keep them separate, too. 🥚 The pigs get cleaner pastures, less pests, and the occasional eggs if they're laid on the ground. In return the chickens get whatever extra food the pig don't eat, and most importantly protection from predators. We don't have wild/feral pigs out here, so the local carnivores get pretty freaked out when they come across our pigs. Our predator problems go away as soon as we put some pigs around the chicken coops. 🥚 This arrangement also benefits them in the future. The pigs and chickens working together means more black gold (aka, poop) to fertilize the ground, and the chickens speed up that process by spreading it. The chickens eat the bugs and fly larvae, efficiently helping to break pest cycles which benefits the pigs out tremendously. After the pigs are done mowing the grass down they start to till up the ground (if we leave them there long enough to) to get at roots and grubs. Once we're satisfied with the state of the paddock, we move them to the next one and they repeat the process. Then after the area has fully recovered and grown back it'll be even better and greener than before. . #baconandeggs at Chatham County, North Carolina

#americanguineahogs - These VERY friendly compact heritage farm pigs are  easy to manage and they recycle leftover farm produce/kitchen scraps and provide excellent pork for the table and lard for cooking - they graze grass and clover all day long and rarely root if grazing is available.  We couldn't run our farm without them.  These hardy hogs require no shots, no chemicals, no deworming.  Male guinea hogs raised for meat do not need to be castrated.  It's very easy to keep a breeding pair and to provide your family with a constant supply of the best pork you've ever tasted.  Our farm helped rescue this breed from near extinction over a decade ago, and we happily teach others to raise these important animals.  We always have some excellent stock for sale.

I get sick when I think about how people today are so far removed from their food sources. We go to giant stores full of food that was shipped half way across the country, cut up and packaged, with buzz words decorating the plastic to trick the customer into thinking that product is superior. And we don't question it. What person is going to call the company directly and ask questions, or ask to visit the farms and see the conditions that the animals are living in? The conditions most of them live in are inhumane and downright disgusting. Cows are being fed chicken poop, chickens are canabilizing and suffocating each other from lack of space, and pigs, one of the most intelligent species, are living their entire lives on slatted floors and in crates. Those animals will never get to run through green fields or roll around in mud wallows. This way of raising animals isn't just bad for them, it's bad for our health and the environment. About eleven years ago we started to realize what we were supporting. It sickened us. I eat meat. My family eats meat. That's not going to change. But we can make sure that our dollars are going to something we can be proud to support. Something that we can take our kids to see without wearing hazmat suits. Something that will help heal the environment, not hurt. Something that we can proudly say we support. . . . #votewithyourdollars #knowyourfarmer #mEatlocal at Chatham County, North Carolina

Baby watch 2019 has officially begun here on the farm!! We've been working hard this week putting the finishing touches on a pen for Pepper to have her babies and it looks like she has already made herself at home. We thought she wouldn't like being without Pork Chop and Pudge as she's never been apart from them, but she seems to be loving having her own space all to herself. I'm not 100% sure when these babies will come but have a feeling it will be any day now. We can't be more excited!! #asimplehomemadelife #americanguineahogs #americanguineahog #pigsofinstagram #pigfarming #pastureraisedpork #farmlife #farmlifestyle #backyardfarm #hobbyfarm #farmfresh #organicfarm #familyfarm #mycountryliving

Tonight we picked up our male #americanguineahog #piglet from a local farm. Tomorrow we are picking up two females from a farm about an hour north of us. We don't want to leave him alone tonight so he'll spend the night in the garage with Hades, Rock, and Maxx (the dogs) to keep him company. Once we have all three #americanguineahogs we'll put them out in their #pig pen #agh #pigs #farmstead #pastureraised #hogs #homestead #farm #newfarmers #pasture #farming #countrylife #countryside #organic #organicfarming #naturalgrowing #poconos #poconomountains #agriculture #farmersmarket #growyourown #piglets #farmer #farmers #sustainableliving #agriculturelife #americanguineapig

Don’t mind our moms recording skills (none) our morning root before she leaves us alone for a couple of hours! 😡🤬 wagging my tail now, but she’ll see how we are going to turn her house upside down. Our neice Salem is going to help us destroy things too! #theadventuresofonyxandeclipse #salem #Blackpigs #BlackCat #animalsarefriendsnotfood #Rescues #RescuedCats #RescuedPigs #vegan #plantbased #veganfortheanimals #Veganforhumanity #crueltyFree #ADOPTDONTSHOP #SAVEALIFE #potbellypigs #americanguineahogs #minipigs #stopthebreeding
