What are we making at Pig Dog Farms?

Trying something new – opening an etsy shop

Good evening! It has been a hot minute since I posted, but that happens sometimes. Times get busy, ideas for blog posts don’t come and sometimes inspiration is hard to find. But! This past week, I’ve been inspired to do more to help people who want to start gardening themselves. And, in order to help … Read More

Sugar overload – oops!

Sugar. Sugar. Sugar. Sugar. That is running through my head right now at full speed. Know why? …… I just ate six cookies. One thing I knew when I started Pig Dog Farm & Bakery was that I’d have to try any new recipe – and old ones just to make sure the quality is … Read More

There are only 30 days until the last frost here in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. 30 days!!! That’s exciting. I am ready for some warmer weather, growing tomatoes, blooming flowers and bees. I miss the bees. Today, I planted some sunflowers, cabbage and peanuts so they can sprout and be ready to put in the … Read More

Well, as it states above, this is real. We’re in business. If you read this post…well, Pig Dog Farms & Bakery is set. I can’t believe it and I am so excited. We even have a new logo! Thanks to Design and Word for your hard work on it. I think it perfectly shows Piggy’s … Read More
