history of the Boar
The Bacon Boar is on the family crest of Elizabeth "Bacon" Bacon, our founder. The original crest carries the family motto, "mediocria firma" or "strength in the middle ground." Some define the meaning as it relates to military strategy. Known in medieval times as the weakest point of an assembled army, the middle ground was where leaders would send the strongest or most courageous soldiers as they were the most likely to die. Alternatively, it is also translated as "strength in the middle of the road" and refers to finding the middle ground as the most peaceful and harmonious approach thus allowing for long life.
