Celebrate the International Day of the Pig
That dapper little Porky Pig may not have needed any PR, but some of the lesser-known breeds of pig could certainly do with a little help. Saturday March 1 marks the International Day of the Pig and Pig ‘N’ Whistle Indooroopilly is using the occasion to raise awareness of some breeds that are in danger of becoming extinct. In a weird contradiction, experts say the best way to see these breeds survive is to boost demand by consuming them. If you’re partial to a little pork, settle in for an epic feast featuring a spit roast of Wessex Saddleback, and wash it down with cider tastings from Stanthorpe’s Sutton’s Farm and beers from Newstead Brewing Co. Pig ‘N’ Whistle executive chef Deniz Coskun and a pig farmer will be on hand to discuss at-risk breeds and answer any questions, while live music will round out the festivities.
