reduce, reuse, recycle

We feed our pigs no commercial feed. There are a number of places that save food for us rather than throwing it away. Reports show that close to 30% of food goes into the landfill, and that more is wasted all along the supply chain.

In our little way, we pick up food that has gone out of date, gone stale or just left over long enough.

We picked up individual milk containers after there were snow days that threw off inventories.


Empty milk bottles, going out in our recycling bin tonight.


Full, as we emptied them out.


Bucketsful, ready for the pigs.

The pigs live it, we make use of food humans can't eat, and help keep the trash out of the landfill. Love it!
