This weekend one of our Idaho Pasture pigs decided she was sick of staying in her pen and decided to explore our yard instead. Luckily we saw her and were able to get her rounded back up. Today we are moving both of our sows to new pens.

****** 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! Wednesday 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.

People noticing high prices care really just experiencing inflation. Fiat money and the won ton creation is a direct theft of the value of our currency. It takes a lot of extra cash to keep people distracted and pacified as the new regime continues the murder suicide of the nation's wealth structure. It's very sad and yet I'm very grateful to be able to care what is happening through a biblical lense. I remember the pastor saying as Christians we look at the world this way.

Use a double rubber trough. One bolted to the station and one as a liner pan. The liner pan can be removed for cleaning or emptying out the rainwater

I love your garden video's. This spring I'm going to try laying the plastic down to control weeds. Have you ever tried companion planting to control insects. Try reading the book, Carrots Love Tomatoes by Louise Riotte. I'm hoping to have a great garden this year. You guys are our inspiration. Take Care

Next time you build feeders make the 4x4 stick out 3 1/2"out the back then you can attach 2x4 back on the side of the 4x4 instead of the face of the grain much stronger not much extra lumber

I love your pig's ferrowing pens. We are getting ready to set something similar up for our pigs. How do you keep the babies from escaping through your gates? I see that you didn't run the electric wire in front of it and the gates look like they are un-wired.

Your feeding station design is absolutely brilliant!! One of the things I absolutely hated about keeping our pigs was the constant mess with their food buckets ending up in their wallow or half their feed being wasted because it gets lost in the mud.

Confused. On the back panel shouldn’t you have raised the vertical 2x4’s off the ground since they’re not pressure treated? I would think ground moisture would wick up the cut ends of the 2x4’s. 🤷‍♀️

They say pigs are smart, but Mildred must be smarter than the average pig! I just discovered your you tube channel yesterday, 1/10, and you both are so nice and interesting that I subscribed. Hello! Mildred is a pretty pig. I've never seen one that looked like her before. But, truth be told... I was raised in San Francisco and I've actually never seen a pig in real life. So your vlog is very interesting. Happy New Year! Take care!

I love your channel, i watch all your videos, can I ask a question, how big is the shelter in the back? thanks. I want to build something along those lines, as next year i will get a sow, either a great white, a duroc or a belgian. Also, I could not help to notice the feed station base you built, looks a lot like a heavy-duty pallet.

Another good job done.. . . Love the pigs they are so cute.... I miss Mine we butchered in early Dec. But we had very friendly pigs too like belly rub, scratch my back pigs.... It was very hard this year. So you guys were once wisconsinites... What city? I'm NE. Wisconsin about 35 miles west of Greenbay. Homestead is gonna be growing with all the addititions you guys have planned. Love the orchard trees you picked. Tho crabapple wouldn't be one I would choose too sour. .. 🤢. Well looking forward to the next video... Hope your weather stays nice... It's been mild here this year no crazy 40 below yet, it's been sticking in the 20s during the day, teens at night. Goid day to you all.... 👋

I tried that on the last ones and they just get clogged up with food, dirt etc and they still don’t drain. If you make the hole bigger than food gets wasted. Kevin

You work so well together :-) OH! Dont forget to put the hog panels on the gates to, so the piglets dont get out :-) Will there be a short piece of board across the entrance to the barn at the bottom as well so the teeny tiny piglets dont get out of there too soon, or isnt that necessary? I have seen that on farrowing pens, so I am curious.

(about chickens) how do you know or can you separate out eggs to be consumed vs eggs to be hatched? If you have a rooster are all the chickens going to have hatchable eggs or can they all be consumed? This is very confusing to me. Can you have both on the same farm?
