Meet these two curious little piglets. They used to live right outside our van but have been missing for the last week or so. I am devastated about this as I was in the process of fattening them up ready for an epic feast. I spent weeks gaining their trust and even had them eating out of my hand.
I know what some of you must be thinking, how can I eat such cute little animals? I do see where you're coming from, but I am a great believer in knowing where your food comes from, and for me, this is just a natural part of life. I've had many animals in the UK that have been cultivated for my dinner plate and I have come to the conclusion that this is the only way to eat. The meat is far tastier than that found in the supermarkets, and nothing beats fresh home-smoked chorizo from my pigs.
I'd like to think that they will return but having waited a week already, I hold out little hope. They must have sensed their imminent slaughter, either that or someone else had the same ideas as I did. If any of the Raglan crew have any ideas as to their whereabouts please let me know. You will be rewarded in deliciously succulent spit roasted pork.
