e finally moved those hogs! Everyday is a new adventure and new learning. We will have a new supply of #farmfresh #pastureraised #pork in 2 weeks. We also have 4 more hogs available if you would like to order a 1/2 or whole hog for your family or event. You can place your order through our shop at www.shambacreekfarm.com/shop.
