small farm raised hogs

Travelling around Siem Reap you will often see pigs being transported by motorcycle. The may seem very cruel but these pigs have actually had a much better life than most, having been ‘free range’ so to speak until the unfortunate day they go to market.

Usually this is from small farms and not large piggeries where condition may be awful.  As you may expect the quality of the meat is better, reflecting the better life of the pigs and the meat fetches higher prices at the market.
