And this little piggy…..



Irchester’s year 3 and 4 Farmers have just taken their second trip to Spinney Barns.

The last time we visited they were only 2 days old and not out of their pen yet. But now they are out running about in the mud.


These 3 week old saddleback piglets will be raised for slaughter and we will be following them on their journey from sow to sandwich as we learn more about where our food comes from and how important local agriculture is to our communities.
