Sustainable Agriculture Working Group Conference

Posted in Ranch Report

Last weekend I was fortunate enough to travel to Mobile, Alabama to attend a conference hosted by the Sustainable Agriculture Working Group (SAWG).  This conference, in its 23rd year, gives family farm operators practical tools and solutions to improve sustainability.  As always, the conference offers a wealth of knowledge and new ideas, and is an incredible networking opportunity to meet over 1,000 farmers and producers working towards similar goals. 


Tamworth Pigs at Rock Bottom Ranch

Posted in Ranch Report

A few weeks ago, Rock Bottom Ranch welcomed two new gilts (young female pigs) to our family.  These adorable piglets are a heritage breed called Tamworth. The Tamworth breed is one of the oldest recognized pig breeds in the world, originating in England. Sir Robert Peel is credited with developing the breed by crossing local pigs with imported Irish stock.
