    We are looking at getting a couple of pigs for next spring. First I need some info, what's the best way to keep a pig penned and happy, and where to find a butcher.

    Thanks, Hannah

    Plenty of food, water and shade. You need a sturdy fence, pigs are pretty good at getting out of pens, mine used to push the hay bales up against the fence and 'climb' out.

    We're interested in getting a couple of piglets, but are having trouble locating some. Anyone know of any breeders in NW PA?
