Big Bear (our Boar) and Goldilocks (our sow) with a cameo appearance of Blueberry (Mangalitsa sow) complaining that I am not moving fast enough. They are telling me to hurry up! They are hungry! What a bunch of whining pigs...
In honor of #nationalpigday yesterday, we introduce to you two-time #fundafarmer grant recipient, YKer Acres. And Big Bear and Goldilocks too!
Matt and Sara Weik own and operate YKer Acres in Wrenshall, MN, a small city located 20 miles south of Duluth and near the shores of Lake Superior. The Weiks and their son Josie raise pigs. Their mission is to have diversity in the food they raise, extend their growing season through low energy consumption methods, and promote connection between local food and people.
Head over to their page and give them a like to follow their farm adventure!
