It’s lovely mate, I always have a good bit of fat on my pork because the fats the flavour.

Meat is slightly darker than factory pork.

They have a good coat too because they live out most of the year.

Proper meat with a good healthy layer of fat imo.

We had a small piggery, a small shed which into a small field. Easier to handle. I would do things differently now if I had them again though.

Long gone are the days where you could get slop for free from kitchens, it's not cheap any more to feed em!

Seen one neighbour, with wild boar. Big brute, with a temper to match. Never asked how it turned out. 

Any of you gentlemen have them

I reared a couple of wild boar crosses, they were fine and they tasted amazing

Wish I could release some here on the bog, they'd do really good, but it's tight, and they'd know it was me 🙄

He bought these off the dealer, up in mayo some place,  think it was 60 quid he paid for them, slow enough to grow he said, but when they did grow, they were big and touchy

I made €80 each of these little rascals and nobody batted an eyelid at the price.

That's a good fair price, well worth it.

Isn't funny how years ago, every one with a bit of land, small holding, kept a pig or two, some hens and ducks for the table.

Not many do it now, myself included. 

Shame really.

They turned out exactly how I wanted actually so I kept back a brother & sister and I will breed them together and see how they turn out.

I always find it strange that most lads here keep cattle and yet they have never eaten their own beef ......they shop at Supervalue instead which I just think is mental.
