On the farm there is nothing like giving the animals new toys (normally involving food) to play with and investigate and also keeps them from becoming board and depressed, they love their treats and it makes us happy to see them enjoying themselves. It's no secret that pig LOVE food and being Halloween we thought it would be a nice idea to use pumpkins that would normally go in the bin, which helps cut down on food waste (7 million pumpkins are thrown away in Britain each year!) and also gives the pigs a lovely treat. It's not only the pigs that like them either, chickens also love pecking away at a pumpkins and eating the seeds which can help the chicken’s stomachs stay healthy.
We asked our parents to bring in their left over pumpkins and the response was fantastic! Take a look at their photos below to see how the Pumpkins For The Pigs collection went.
