Breeds matter. Commercial pigs won't make the cut, I'm sure, but the heritage breeds tend to tolerate cold better and live better off forage. It may be an option there.

That's a good point. For a long time the only pigs available were whatever the very few people raining them had, but there seems to be quite a few people going through the trouble of bringing heritage breeds up to Alaska so I think people's options are definitely improving.

That's good to hear. That's the one roaring success I've had on our small farm. I think, next to chickens, pigs are probably the easiest animals to raise. I'd gladly take a stab at being the only support of quality pork within 100 miles! Hahaha

We are going to have Austrolorp chickens as well.

As far as the plan, Alaska is like a Femme Fatale, she lures you in with her beauty. And then she tries to kill you. You had better come prepared.

Lower 48 gun laws: you've got to have a permit for that

Alaska gun law: I assume you are carrying a gun; because if you're not you're an idiot.

Very nice, I didn't think about drift wood so that is preobalbly a great source. Depending on where you are at. I was looking around and found an island called "dry spruce island" haha I bet it has some dry spruce :lol: :lol:

Anywho look forward to updates. Start planning on building an Alaska sawmill!
