- In the woods with the critters
We had farrowing pens, birth pens, raising pens and they roamed in a 4 acre pen outside. We did also have a slaughter house, scalding tanks, and huge gut tanks for the blood and unwanted parts. We had a hot water jacket pot used to make scrapple which we sold wholesale. I discuss a lot about my hoggin days on my journal.ohiofarmgirl said:hey MP!
thanks for joining us.. do you have anything to add about the hoggin?
for instance, did you scald? skin? or do it old school hillbilly and use a torch to remove the hair, part it up, THEN skin???
and what is your favorite pork preparation? ribs? scrapple? liverwurst?
If you look here, you will see whats left of my old hog farm I grew up on, very sad really.
