From paddock to plate: a pig’s life

tammi jonas cheers!I’m delighted to introduce you to the Jonas family (aka the Jonai) of Daylesford, and if you recall, you’ve met Tammi Jonas before. She’s kindly agreed to let me track a litter of their Large Black pigs from paddock to plate. In doing so, I hope to show you what Joel Salatin calls, the ‘pigness of the pig'; they’re free to roam on pasture, root and wallow as they would in the wild.
