welcome to the 21 acres blog

Greetings! My name is Masra Clamoungou. I’m blogging about my sustainable pork venture this summer at the 21 Acres Farm. To read my first blog post, click here.

As a first-time livestock farmer, it is easy for me to see why raising animals on pasture just makes sense; when I see one of my pigs running around and thrashing the giant branch it just picked up, like an ecstatic dog on the beach, I know all is right in this little corner of our world. It gives me a wondrous sense of gratitude to be able to raise these pigs in an environment where I can witness these expressions of joy and play. However, when we zoom out, the average life story of a pig is very different.
