Little Large Blacks

Our latest porcine addition to the farm is a pair of Large Black heritage hogs. They are the future mothers of Frith Farm piglets, currently betrothed to our young Tamworth boar. They are barely 40 lbs now, but by early next year should be pushing 600 lbs or more. Even at this size, Large Blacks are known for their docility (partly due to their large floppy ears that impair their eyesight), their forage ability, their mothering traits, and their excellent meat quality. Right now our little Large Blacks are known on the farm for their unequivocal cuteness.
