The pigs at Good Enough Ranch are American Guinea Hog, Ossabaw, and Berkshire. These pigs are excellent at foraging for their own food, love belly rubs, and are moved from pasture to pasture every week. They are currently given free choice feed, and table scraps of organic food to reduce food waste, but often choose to forage for their own food under the acorn tree.
