Food sales

On the announcement of the termination of the  Wickedfood Earth Farm pig research project we received a lot of positive feedback from our regular clients. The good news is that we still have around 20 pigs that we will be slaughtering over the next few months, both for fresh cuts as well as turning them into the processed pork products that Wickedfood Earth Farm has become renowned for.
