Lights, camera, action! Mini Donkey on the Range

Earlier this week, our pigs received some exciting visitors. The Alabama Farmers Cooperative, Inc ., a regional federated supply and marketing agricultural cooperative, providing farmers in the state of Alabama a full range of agricultural supplies and services, came across our listing on Local Harvest and wanted to see our farm firsthand. The Alabama Farmers Co-op is involved in the production of a new television series entitled “Simply Southern” that will air on Huntsville’s Channel 48 starting in January of 2015. The show will highlight different areas of agriculture and southern heritage here in Alabama. Since our Kunekunes are relatively new to the area, and of course undeniably cute, the Simply Southern team asked to shoot some video of the pigs on the farm. To illustrate the gentle temperament of this heritage breed, we invited some friends and family over to play with the pigs during the shoot. The kids had a great time and the crew was amazed with how calm and friendly our pigs were despite children of all ages running around and playing with the animals. We are looking forward to the airing of Simply Southern and seeing the story they put together on our farm! Once we know what day the show will be on, we will be sure to let our friends and fans know! Thanks for all the love and support!
