One day freerange pig rearing course.
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 organic pigs for over 17 years. 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.
Whether you are a complete novice or you wish to expand your knowledge of raising pigs this course is for you. 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 legislation, fencing, farrowing, feeding, housing, pricing, routes to market 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.
We can, if you like, do a gift voucher…. this could be a great present for the pig lover in your life 🙂
