One of the special things about Santa Ynez Valley is the ability to enjoy locally sourced products. One example is Valley Piggery, which is the source of the pork found at Industrial Eats (Buellton) and Full of Life Flatbread (Los Alamos), according to Santa Ynez Valley News. Today, Valley Piggery hosted an "open ranch" and we got to meet several pigs up front. I never knew that pigs can get so large, but then again, I've never met a heritage-breed pig before. We didn't know what to expect of the open ranch event but were so glad we went!
