Old McHatcher Had a Farm

A recent article from Time has me feeling nostalgic for my days of feeding the hogs on my Granddaddy's farm. I'm tempted to gather up the wife and kids and buy 20 acres somewhere out in the middle of nowhere and start raising Heritage animals. Ten dollars a pound for pork is pretty amazing.

Yeah - I'll believe this pipedream when I see it in action.

Oh, it won't happen. My wife would never live within five miles of a pig farm. Her nose is way too sensitive.

How can she stand being around you?
By the way with the price of pork at $10.00 a pound you would probably go for ohh uhhmmm lets say $3,400.00.
Yeah I believe it would be a good investment. For some reason though I see you fighting with your livestock over their food...... Unless of course its protien which you would discard and look for more carb's....
