I'm planning to raise either Duroc or Red Wattle pigs next spring. I'd like to save on their food costs as much as possible. What should I plant to help sustain them?

Many varieties of clover will work and all are easy to grow. Try planting some red clover. It's full of protein and the bees also love it.

Almost Eden - why would you want to encourage bees? I've seen a couple of people comment that now. Is it for flowers?

Yes, I would definitely plant clover. That's a great ground covering for pigs.
