Artist's Description

The mountain folk let there livestock run free to feed on what nature provided. Any fencing used was to keep them out of the garden or a particular area. The pig pen was used about the first frost. A pig was put into a pen like this to fatten. They would fatten them to the point the roof would have to be removed to get the pig out…..The pen also provided protection from bears and other predators….Every part of the pig was used as meat, lard, or its hide….This pig pen is located on the Ephraim Bales place along The Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail,GSMNP
