Dennis Buchmann, who began his "My Little Farm" project in November, said visitors to his Web site can get to know the pigs on his colleague Bernd Schulz's farm before purchasing the sausage Buchmann makes from their meat, Deutche Welle reported Monday.
Buchmann said he loves to eat meat but prefers to know the animals had decent lives before ending up on his plate. He said he hopes his project will inspire people to eat meat consciously.
"Imagine you are a pig and you have this wonderfully big nose that's been genetically programmed to dig around in the ground all day long," he said. "But imagine you are standing on some concrete floor all the time, never able to use your nose in the way you should. It's very sad."
