So, the Drunkard and the Little One are gone. They were killed yesterday just a few minutes after I dropped them off at the slaughterhouse at about 8:30 a.m. They had been with us for about six months and were our two "special needs" pigs.
For most of my life, all of my life, in fact, I have had an intense desire to be extraordinary -- not just to stand out from the crowd. But is in the very ordinariness of farming that I have found contentment.
Putting her beliefs into action, Kendra Kimbirauskas and her husband, Ivan Maluski, started a small, organic farm on a few acres in Colton, Oregon, where she now raises heritage pigs outdoors on pasture.
