    I’m sure you saw the title of this article and immediately thought, “I already live with a few.”

    However, whether you’re a self-reliant homesteader or just want to cut away from your food budget, raising pigs (of the porcine variety) is a great way to become more self-reliant and sufficient. If you raise your own meat in any scenario, you will have more control over how it is raised and fed, and you can make sure that it is essentially raised organically (whether or not you apply for organic certification).

    Frustrated & Bored, Yet Happy

    At least being stuck in limbo offers time to prepare
    by Chris Martenson
