Pigs & Pollinators

Pigs are nature’s rotavators. They root around in the soil, aerating it, killing weeds and improving the soil structure. Thatched House Farm started a project in 2020 using pigs to strip-graze an unproductive, compacted piece of land and then reseed with wildflowers carefully selected to benefit our precious pollinators. This project will transform an unattractive piece of scrub land into a wild flower meadow over time. As the flowers are establishing bee hotels will be incorporated and local bee keepers will be offered the opportunity to introduce bee hives.
