Animal Spotlight: Rosie

Long, lean and an innate forging ability are all qualities you will find in this purebred Tamworth sow.RosieRosie is a gilt (first time mom) with four piglets who are four weeks old  (in the photo above the piglets are only a few days old)and already rooting in the pasture alongside their mother. When she was younger Rosie had a penchant for escape, we would often wake up to find her rooting around the rose bushes in the garden. As she grew up her adventurous spirit waned somewhat and in its place came a sweetness and friendless unrivaled by any other pig on the farm. We are exited to meet (and eat) Rosie’s long bellied offspring for many years to come.
