jen from starshaped press recently wrote to tell me about their favorite local farm and how badly they are struggling to keep their small family pig farm afloat amidst large corporate farms with healthy government subsidies. even though i don’t eat meat, i will always support the local, sustainable farm! they are our biggest hope for the future. in efforts to help, jen has created this cute pig poster as a way to raise money for the farm and to help them stay in business. all $10 from the sale of this print will go directly to the farm! (and i’m sure they will accept donations as well!)
a little more about c & d farm:
c & d family farms is a small animal welfare approved family farm dedicated to raising hogs in their natural environment. their happy hogs are raised on pasture and in wooded areas where they can root and play and be hogs. they graze on pasture designed for them or eat leaves, weeds, berries and acorns from their large wooded pens. hogs are very social animals and are kept in droves so they can socialize and prosper.
