PIGS AT WEPPA FARM
Construction of the piggery began in January 2018 and currently there are three houses comprising 51 pens. The first pigs were introduced in March 2018 and in August the first piglets were born. Further pens are under construction and the target is to produce 100 market ready pigs on a monthly basis.
SNAILS AT WEPPA FARM
Our snailery was established in June 2018, where snails are being bred and fattened for market. Commercial sales will start in 2019.
GRASSCUTTERS AT WEPPA FARM
Grasscutter farming was considered viable because of the ready availability of suitable feeding materials on the farm, many of which are otherwise waste products. The grasscutter house was completed in July 2018 and the first breeding colonies have been introduced.
