If you are thinking of keeping pigs, this day will be invaluable. We will teach you everything we’ve learned about keeping free-range outdoor reared pigs. The aim of the course is quite simply to give people confidence in handling pigs and to educate them in successful ways of keeping pigs.
It is suitable for complete novices or those wishing to expand their knowledge. Course numbers are restricted to a maximum of 8 participants so there is ample opportunity to ask questions. And there most certainly will be the opportunity to get up close and personal with the pigs!
Topics covered will include fencing, farrowing, feeding, housing, and lots more. At the end of the day, you will go home well prepared to keep your own pigs.
If you are a group, on an allotment or smallholding, we can tailor a course to your needs, just give us a call.
Alfie and Margaret are both qualified trainers.
Have a read of Matt’s experience here on 12th April 2014.
