Farrowing huts for pasture-raised pigs!

Modified A-frame farrowing huts

These awesome farrowing huts help keep newborn piglets safe and warm in outdoor pasturing systems like ours (Honeyman and Roush, 1997). Thanks to Tom’s construction expertise we built each hut in just a few hours! We are deeply grateful to A Greener World for funding the project.
