As you know, October is National Pork Month.  In true celebration form, we are featuring some of our farmwives that hail from pig farms and their family pig farms during the month.  First up is Miss Jent from From My Front Porch…


I love pork and I love raising pigs!  Chris and I have a farrow to finish hog operation where we farrow approx. 24 sows every 5 weeks and sell approx. 2000 head of fat hogs a year.  There are some jobs on our hog farm I enjoy and some I hate – but I have done them all and am very proud of the quality product that we raise!

Learn a little more about hog production on our farm!  Here are a few links to posts that I have written on my blog, From My Front Porch:

Thanks Jent!  Be sure to check in on Tuesday as Jent will be featured again with a favorite pork recipe or two.

    Reading your posts, looking at the pictures…I remember. I loved the days when I managed our hog operation. It was hot and tiring work, a very different tiring than what I know today.

    It was “good” work.

    It was important work that so many simply take for granted as they mindlessly toss a package of chops into their grocery cart.

    Many blessings upon you and all those involved in pork production in this nation.

    It does take a lot of work when you manage a farm. There are various needs you have to attend to.

    Managing a farm is not an easy job. You have lot’s of things need to do and to consider. I am proud to the farmers who supported our basic needs.
