    I had a wench once... didn't need my son's help. I was on a mini deployment to Subic Bay in the PI... Oh, wait... that's a story for another place and time :duc:hide
    Or did you mean (I hope not) wife? :hide:smack I hope you meant winch... ;) I'm by myself here (& not so young anymore) so in the interest of my health I think when the time comes I'll pay to have it processed.

    My hub came home and told me about the veg thingy.. where I heard it.. He does the selling and advertises them as veg protein raised... soybean/corn/barley etc and not meat protein rasied..
    sorry for the confusion...

    @Farmer Connie - it's all good. :) Sure wish you and I lived closer to each other.

    Heck, any pig farmers close to me? WV? Maryland? Penn? VA? OH? I miss having pigs and fresh pork. This place isn't set up for pigs yet. That will take time. :)

    HA! I feel your pain. I bought 7 American Guinea Hogs off Craigslist all for $100 -- an intact boar, his 4 sisters (1 pregnant), and 2 unrelated females. I sold 2 females to a friend. And then when the sow had her litter, I sold 3 piglets to the same friend. BUT, it turns out that ALL 6 FEMALES WERE PREGNANT! Those 7 pigs have since turned into 40! :eek: They are making my rabbits look lazy!

    Anyone want some piglets? Bulk pricing available! :D

    I am about 15 minutes from the WV border in Washington County, MD. Not sure how far that is away from you, but we are about 30 minutes from Martinsburg. If you want some pork, I have two 350 lb gilts I could sell you :) We just butchered two this past weekend.

    I would think it might be the goats that might not be safe right now. :lol:
