One of the things my husband has talked about doing for quite awhile is processing his own pig. Not the actual slaughter, we paid someone to do that! But our own cuts, the way we want them. If we are going to be meat eaters, then this is one of the most basic, most primal ways to get back to basics and control our family’s diet. Now that we have recently moved to upstate NY and into a rural area, it proved to be the perfect opportunity.
So we bought a pig.
