I was reading a while back about a litter of piglets supplying meat for one family for a whole year. They start by eating haveing a suckling pig roast with about a 12-15 pound pig. A few days later they eat the next smallest piglet from the litter. Few days later the next smallest. Every few days or weeks they keep butchering another one. Each time the next piglet is bigger than the last one and last a few more days in the freezer than the last one did. This keeps on till its time to butcher the last one and it should be big enough to last till the next litter is born. I thought this would be a good ideal for the homestead but I'm not sure if I could get my family to eat baby pigs!
