Bacon,  Berkshire,  Breeding,  David,  Ham,  Pigs,  Tamworth

Happy great-grandparents day…

…after swearing “no more pigs”, Church has surrendered to my wearing down and come up with some excellent piglets in nearby Lynchburg.

Thistlehill Farm Pigs

You can’t always be sure from a photo of course, but these look like exceptionally healthy, well cared-for youngsters.  Some are Berkshire and the rest are a Berkshire-Tamworth cross.

I’ve always been partial to the Tamworth, particularly for their bacon, but “pig pros” seem to tilt to the Berks.  So here we have on the way the best of both worlds!

Believe it or not, it’s not too early to put your name in for one of these guys!
