We are very excited to have Swabians on the farm. We are one of three breeders in the country that have Carl’s special breed of hogs. These hogs do well on pasture and fodder which fits in perfectly with the Jade Meadow philosophy. We look forward to some delicious and healthy Christmas hams in the future.

Carl also got one of our Australian Shepherd puppies to help herd on his farm.  The pup took to Carl immediately and looked right at home on the farm.  Carl has a herding trainer friend coming out to get them started training and on the right track to working the farm.
