Time to take care of those pigs.
Last night we reviewed the DVD that John and Lisa Mesko of Lighthouse Farm produced, entitled, "Hog Butchering". You can find details of the DVD here. The information was very helpful for today as we got started on processing a pig.
This is what you do when you need some help!
Notice the computer screen in the background is still on Mesko's hog butchering DVD for reference.
Even the refrigerator has been taken over by pig information!
Peter and Jim are working on pork chops (and they tasted very good at suppertime).
Jonathan working on the chops as well.
Andrew was helping with cutting fat to render into lard. We went from the odor of dehydrating onions to lard being rendered. Good thing we aren't expecting company. I neglected to take a photo of David as he helped me package meat.
