Judith: Memories of a Lady Pig Farmer

Judith: Memories of a Lady Pig Farmer by Heather Davies, adapted from Aritha Van Herk’s award-winning 1978 novel Judith.

A young woman leaves the home farm (a pig operation) to move to the big city. Her parents plead with her to stay and take over the farm, but Judith wants none of it; she sees nothing but bright lights in her fantasy future among the skyscrapers.

But when her parents die suddenly, and the big city turns out not to be what she anticipated, Judith returns to her home county and uses her inheritance to start out on her own. With her own patch of land, a barn full of sows, and memories of her childhood, Judith rediscovers the true meaning of home.
