We’veÂ receivedÂ an interesting request through our contact form recently:
“I am trying to find any information about a ministry of food scheme that ran in Wednesfield and other areas as well, where you could raise 4 pigs a year in your own back yard, sell two to the Ministry of food and kill and keep two for your selfâ€™s.
My family joined the scheme and if I remember rightly raised 8 pigs.
I have been putting to paper my life story for the grand kids and would like some details and stories from anyone who remembers the scheme.”
Personally intrigued by this I have googled all the terms I could come up with to try and find more information about raising pigs and selling them to the Ministry of Food but to no avail. Do youÂ rememberÂ anything about this? Did your family raise pigs themselves?
In short, Can you help?
