My pigs help to tidy up the environment

A FEW years ago, I peered into the waste bins behind my local Co-op. I saw plastic bags full of bread, fruit and vegetables.

I wrote to the Co-op and obtained an agreement that I could collect this waste food, destined for landfill. I have a few rare-breed pigs.

Since then, my sows and their offspring have feasted on all sorts of plain and fancy breads, vegetables and fruit – legally.

Mind you, those salads in plastic bags are a bit of a pain but the plastic gets recycled, so I reckon I and my pigs are doing the best we can for the environment.
