Polyface brought pigs to the farm as a way to build compost. They turn the wood chips and hay used to bed down cattle in the winter, oxygenating the deep bedding into compost we use on our fields and gardens. During the summer and fall, pigs are put into special Savannah pastures and rotated every few days to new grass and foraging opportunities.
Plants and animals should be provided a habitat that allows them to express their physiological distinctiveness. Respecting and honoring the Pigness of the Pig is a foundation for societal health.
