A Baker’s Dozen

A Baker’s Dozen is thirteen items. I’ve read that this originated in the 13th century when bakers were threatened with the loss of a hand if they short changed a customer. So they threw in an extra to be safe.

In my case I’m making my Baker’s Dozen be 19 rather than 13 just because there are so many fun photos to share from our farm for the Kickstarter reward. That’s a baker’s dozen beautiful downloadable all natural art photos of our pigs on pastures plus six more bonus photos from our farm. Our baker’s dozen features big, beautiful buxom lady pigs and their giant gentlemen friends! Oo-la-la! Au Natural pastured pork indeed! Perfect for screen savers and desktop background. (G-rated content. Void where prohibited. Walk on the grass.) Below are low web resolution versions with some text to explain each photo. Backers are getting an email with the secret location of their Baker’s Dozen.

    The picture of Kia, Mark and Charlie is just begging for a caption contest of some sort. They look like they are sharing a great joke. I enjoy your blog very much. Keep up the good work!

    Have you considered publishing a Cafe Press calendar each year?

    Please let me know the breed of your pigs. People have asked me when I’m wearing a tee shirt.
