Everyone piles in to help


On Friday, it was a case of everyone piling in to help. My friend Steve agreed to take surplus kune pigs from Bill Quay Community Farm. We borrowed a trailer from the farm of our friend Janet and used my pick up to tow it. The pigs were collected (escapees were kept to a minimum and were later rounded up!) and transported to a paddock on my farm which Steve "rents" - the payment is in meat.

The issue here for those wanting to be self-sufficient is that you can't do everything in isolation. Work with others who have similar ambitions to produce your own food and live as sustainably as possible, as we did on Friday.
