Going Whole Hog
This week, Linda hogs the entire show with her interview of Helen Tucker, who talks about her Ossabaw Island hogs, Dusty and Rusty, which she obtained from George Washington's birthplace. These smaller-than-average pigs are a heritage breed which dates back 400 years when the Spanish first brought them to the New World. Fewer than 200 breeding pairs are known to exist today. And speaking of pigs, more or less, Helen also tells Linda about her Hog Island sheep, a very hardy domesticated breed once widespread in the Colonial Era but extremely rare today. Helen entertains Linda with tales of runaway pigs and tips on feeding Popsicles to a hog.
