Our Cyber Monday Recommendation: Pigs!

Cyber Monday pig

Pigs are the perfect, most interest-bearing "living savings accounts" for struggling families. They provide a valuable source of protein, income from selling offspring, and manure to nourish crops and soil.

Did you know?

  • Pigs can have up to 16 piglets in a litter.
  • Piglets usually double their birth weight in just one week.
  • Pigs thrive on crop and garden waste, saving fodder land and income.

Shop Heifer this Cyber Monday and give someone the pig they've always wanted!
