I first met Chris, seen here with Betty, while shooting a new range of
ciders at Four Elms Fruit Farm. At the time he was hand rearing another piglet,
Nudge, who could often be seen with her head out of the car window, enjoying
the breeze as Chris drove his pick-up around the various local orchards.
We already know the great lengths Chris will go to keep his
pigs happy and on this occasion he was there to pick up some waste apple pulp.
When apples are juiced using a rack and cloth press it creates a by-product
known as apple pomace, which, when blended with a bit of extra fibre, makes a
very tasty source of carbohydrate that pigs absolutely love …
