Skyegroves large black gilt Gloria suckling her 7 piglets, born last night.

We are absolutely delighted that back in November of last year, the pedigree boar, Fouy Bouy obviously did his job!

Gloria with her piglets

Peggy & Gloria

Peggy and GloriaSkyegrove are delighted to extend a very warm welcome to our latest residents — Peggy & Gloria. They are Cornish Large Blacks (pigs), coming from the rare Queenie Line, of which there only five sows left. If they behave themselves they could save their bacon!

Seriously though, we are hoping to use them as breeding sows, but they are great for cleaning up all our waste vegetables, to aid a closed loop system, and also producing manure.
