Miscellaneous

  • Used (clean) or new blankets for the pigs (we collect these year round)

  • Bales of Straw (clean & dry please)
  • Lumber, including 2×4’s, treated fence posts, chip board (at least 3/4″ thick). No scraps please.

  • Rubbermaid Big Wheel Cart 5642 (Wheel Barrow), 7.5 Cubic Feet – the kind with two wheels! Available at Home Depot, Lowe’s, etc. for around $220
  • Solar Panels. For a few hundred dollars, many farm supply and home improvement stores have large solar panels available and we’d love to have some to supply electricity to our barn, green house, and pig houses. This could provide heat in the winter, de-iced water dishes, light and would go a long way to improving our out-buildings.
