Ferris Wheel at Sugar Mountain
Last night we came home about 8:30 pm from the butcher after having left 23 hours earlier. It’s a long trip. In the summer the trip is longer because we drive during the night so the pigs are not exposed to the stress of the heat of the summer sun during transport.
We gets to the butcher in the cool of the early morning hours. Fortunately we did sleep a few hours after arriving and before making the long trek back. With things that need to happen down there she doesn’t get to head north until about mid-afternoon. It’s a full day’s work. We look forward to eventually having on-farm slaughter which will eliminate this big weekly trip. Less stress for the animals and less stress for us.
Happy Summer Solstice – the longest day (light) of the year!
