Buttered Pigs

Pigs Eating Butter on Snow

Maple syrup on snow is a long time tradition in New England at the sugar houses. These pigs are getting a slightly different treat – butter on snow. Sometimes we get a batch of butter from the creamery that got cooked too hot and is not sale-able. It’s loaded with calories and other good nutrients but must be rationed carefully to the pigs. Too much all at once can upset their digestion, to put it mildly.

    What no popcorn served with the butter? The pigs need a movie with that too!

    Gives a whole new meaning to greased pig. I bet they do love it!

    Popcorn and “Babe.” Or maybe toast and tea and a bedtime story about–what else–the three little pigs?
