The Amish community is known for their expert craftsmanship and quality work, and that’s why they’ve managed to establish successful businesses in the modern world. Apart from that, the Amish build their own houses and make their own tools. The video above shows how they build a hog farm from scratch.
They also build their own homes, barns, churches, and other buildings. Anything they build is strong enough to withstand harsh weather conditions. They do this using traditional methods and processes. The use of machinery at the location is therefore extremely minimal.
Generally, a hog farm is built on a raised area with good ventilation. This is to make sure that the rainwater does not get inside. The roof is constructed in such a way that there’s ample sunlight. In fact, there are two air inlets provided in each room that are used on cold days. The site is also well-connected to water and electricity sources, which makes maintenance easier.
Other things like water-proof slabs, labor rooms, and office spaces are considered while building a hog farm. Constructing a hog farm is inexpensive, safe, and easy. However, before building one, the owner needs to lay out a proper plan that’s safe for the animals.
