Will Feeding Honey to Piglets
We made a major score of honey: 250 lbs for free. It had been going to be used by a cheese making company to make a special cheese and then they found it didn’t come out very well so they tossed it all. As a long time, but not current, bee keeper I was stung. But pleased too. I’m not one to look a gift bee, er, horse in the mouth parts.
The honey has created quite the buzz at our house. The piglets and growers have been getting a bit of honey on their hay. They also get butter, curds and whey with their hay. Pretty happy healthy pigs! The extra calories in the honey and butter do them well during the cold of winter.
The honey was Fed-Ex’d – imagine that for so much weight. It came in very heavy duty mylar bags with caps. Will, who’s feeding the piglets above, is cleaning out and saving the bags for one of his Water War projects.
