Aren’t these piglets cute? It is wonderful when you see really healthy farm animals and I had that privilege yesterday when I visited Phil and Lis Beattie’s property in the Derwent Valley.
They are dairy farmers but raise a few pigs totally free range and this is the result. It is so important that we get the labelling laws changed to make it clear that there is a significant difference between bred free range and free range pork.
Bred free range means they are born outside but then the pigs are barned or penned thereafter whereas free range pigs are born and live outside and can dig and wallow to their hearts content.
