We butchered our first three pigs before Thanksgiving. We went this past weekend and picked up the meat. As soon as we got home, we came straight inside and cooked some bacon, sausage, and fresh eggs. OMG!!! That was the best pork I have ever eaten. I've always heard that the meat you raise yourself tastes better, but I never believed it would be THAT much better!! Anybody that has been considering raising a pig for meat really should do it. Definately worth the time, work, and money.
