Swine Dining: Pigs Feast on Discarded Pumpkins | Business
Don’t throw away that Halloween pumpkin just yet: RC Farms will gladly turn it into pig food.
RC Farms, a North Las Vegas pig farm, again will collect used pumpkins at locations throughout southern Nevada through Monday. If you would prefer to feed a pig yourself, you can bring your pumpkin to RC Farms during business hours from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. until Monday. The farm is located in North Las Vegas at the corner of North 5th Street and Ann Road.
Last year, the effort resulted in more than 10 tons of donated pumpkins. Farm owner Bob Combs hopes to bring in 15 tons this year.

- Green Valley: 1382 American Pacific
- Southwest: 7335 S. Rainbow
- South Summerlin area: 9892 W. Flamingo
- Anthem: 10405 S. Eastern
