When is a pig not a pig? When she is a jersey calf! Pig, a 5 week old jersey calf has been the resident "greeter" on the farm since her birth. Arriving in the back of a Ford stationwagon, Pig has captured our hearts as she greets us daily with a juvenile "moo", a hop-skip-and-a-jump about her paddock, and looks mournfully if you walk by her without a scratch on the chin. Pig is a student farm project--those projects that extend a learning experience outside the domain of the current animal load--other projects include pasture-fed pigs (real ones!) and chickens, the construction of an earthen bread oven, and a medicinal plant garden for treating ailments encountered with our farm animals.
