The snow has melted and spring is in the air which means it is time for Oink Outings to begin again. Oink Outings are events that are hosted at farmers markets and at zoos around the Twin Cities. These events are a way to meet a pig farmer and ask them questions about life on their farm and pork.
This is the fourth year we have been doing Oink Outings and we have had wonderful results. People love learning about how much a piglet weighs at birth and getting tips on how to properly cook pork. These events provide you a way to meet the people who grow your food.
For every question that is asked at an Oink Outing, Minnesota Pork will donate one pound of ground pork to Second Harvest Heartland. Last year we donated over 4,000 pounds of pork and we are looking to donate more this year. So not only are you getting answers to all the questions that you have, but you are also helping to feed families in need.
