The farm's never been bothered by pigs, until this year.  Over the years we've been taking our time enclosing much of the area with a drystack stone wall.  But this year, we've finished off our enclosures very quickly, because - due to drought or fire - the pigs have arrived.  Not just with rock, but with another freely available material: shipping pallets.

The enclosure in the photo was built in one day, between the time we discovered pig damage, and dusk that evening.  (We added the doors another day.) So far, it has held, although we've seen pig damage, and a pig, nearby. Thanks for their hard work to John, Ric, and Clear.
