****** About Living Traditions Homestead ******
Living Traditions Homestead is all about living a simple and sustainable way of life. We believe the world has gotten too “busy” and that people are missing out on many of the true blessings this world has to offer. We started as a small urban homestead in Gilbert, AZ and after the city grew up around us, decided it was time leave corporate America and take a big leap of faith by moving our family to the Missouri Ozarks.
We put out 2 new videos every week! Tuesday and Saturday. We hope you will become part of our homestead family by subscribing to our channel and watching as we give up the rat race and live simpler, more fulfilling life in the country.

We eat everything on a pig from the rooter to the rooter, the head makes great head cheese, pickled pigs feet, pig ears,chitterlings, intestines, hog mags, everything

Do you realize just how expensive the intestines are in the stores and the stomach. You may not eat them, but some people love them. You should check it out more money for y especially at holiday season. Just a tip for a loving couple

This was worth watching just long enough to hear the past tense of skin. I have never heard of scun. Or did I spell it right maybe my predictive text didn't spell it right. I'll look it up. Clean well-presented video

What do you do with the heart, liver, kidney, intestines, stomach, blood, head and skin? In other cultures almost all of the parts are eaten except maybe for the lungs. Most people in Asia would either burn or scald and scrape the hair off. The skin is actually one of the prized parts. Blood is used for sausages and in the Philippines and Portugal. Blood it is used to make dinuguan (blood, fat, some meat, intestines). Intestines are not good for sausage casing, but it works in other dishes. The head is deboned and cheek meat is prized. The ears are crunchy and they also make good dog treats if you roast them crispy. It does take some getting used to the aesthetics and some parts are an acquired taste. Some Filipinos I know are surprised that I eat dinuguan , otherwise called chocolate meat. But is it basically a deconstructed Portuguese blood sausage without all the onions, parsley and and different seasonings. They are also surprised I don't mind goat skin which is usually reserved for the cooks. Pork skin is made into chicharon (fried pork rind ). It is a snack and sometimes an ingredient in pancit, but personally I don't like it much. If you tried some of these other options, you could get a greater yield out of the pigs.

Thank you! I am learning so much you make it very interesting I know I will never be able to do these things but I still love learning about them. Thank you also for showing respect for the pig! I know it has to be done but after raising them I bet it’s still a little hard to kill them. God Bless you and your family!

If you split the skin on back feet, expose the tendons and hang from there not at the hock the pig will then fit your gambrell/single tree

Make a nice fire burn it down to coals and throw the skin on it fur down. Burns off the hair and renders some of the fat, then sun dry in the cold air. Pretty good dog treat that way.

Thank for this video. We are just getting started with a small homestead. I thought about raising a pig to process, but this video made me realize I don't have what it would take. I love all meat. I know this is what is necessary. But when you drove that pig out at the beginning, I started bawling my eyes out. I couldn't do it. I would get too emotionally attached. I love your videos. Thank you for being real and not sugar coating life on a farm. God bless you! 🙏

I had a butcher process a pig and leave my tenderloin attached to the loin chop, by the time the chop was about MW the tendwrkoin was shriveled. For our taste i dont care for a true medium on pork but that tenderloin attached to the chop was a regret for our tastes and cooking style.

Very nice I did three of these this year. How has your deer hunting going? I use a razor knife and set the blade at 1/4”deep cut skin vertically all the way down past the neck. Cut every four inches or so and pull the skin with vise grips. Leaves all the fat on the pig and is much faster and easier I think. Thanks for all you do

Hello! Coming from a different place I know a different way of handling a pig. Watching you was educational, I never missed a video, and I've learned a lot from Sarah. On a way smaller scale I do things your way, 100%! Love it! I wish I could communicate more.... Thank you and God bless.

Love your channel! You are one of the main reasons I chose Idaho Pasture Pigs. I have 4. 2 we're going to keep and breed and 2 going to freezer camp. I know you are experienced hog raisers and I was wyif you could do a taste test comparing the taste of IPP's and regular bacon pigs, or market hogs. I've heard the meat is marbled like beef and they taste great. Thanks!

I had to laugh. You said was once alive. I raise my own meat and my mom and sister say, "Yes, my meat was alive but came from the pork chop tree." They refuse to eat at my house because they have seen the face of their meat. I guess ignorance is bliss. 😂😂🤣🤣

We raise our own pork and beef. We have 5 pigs that are ready to be butchered. We don't do them ourselves, we take them to a butcher. I am definitely going to ask about the leaf lard. I love how much respect you give to the animals you raise. Kudos to you!!!

Wow. Thanks for this experience! So interesting and educational! I love to know where my food comes from. Will you do the same sort of video for the chickens, rabbits and cows? I'd love that. I love your respect for the animals. Question: I'm thinking you must have some substantial refrigeration / freezers on the homestead. Any chance you can give us a video tour? Thanks

Love this we butchered when I was growing up it was a big thing the only thing we did different was we scraped the hair off by pouring hot water on the hog and we also rendered our lard down and stew meat but we butchered 2 hogs with a family friend. It is a wonderful thing and the meat is the best....

I don’t like to skin critters when they hang off a gambrel because they spin and twist. Tie a rope to each leg and tie each seperately.

Kevin please be careful working under a raised loader bucket, you should put a cylinder lock on the lift cylinders in case a hose blows out and you loose pressure and oil. i worked for a john deere for 50 years and have seen these hoses blow and the bucket falls. thank you for your great videos
