Farms provided the necessary raw foodstuffs to sustain both the slave labor force and the war parties in the field. Without a sufficient food supply, new units could not be acquired. The staple diet of the Orcs - along with their kindred Troll and Ogre brothers - was fresh meat. To satisfy this hunger for flesh, wild Boars were trapped and bred for food. Readily abundant in most regions, they had became a bonfire favorite (along with a tankard of Bloodmead) among the hardened troops engaged in a long war march.

After the Third War, Thrall's forces continued to use both pig farms and burrows. As such, pig farms can be found all throughout Azeroth, Outland and Draenor. Some orc fortresses, like Warsong Hold, also come with their own pigsties, and Stonemaul Hold has one as well.
