My farm is home to a small group of heritage breed hogs. I decided early on that I wanted to work with both kunekunes and mangalitsas, as both of these breeds are known to be hardy and well suited for life on pasture. Kunekunes have the added benefit of being relatively small (a desired trait in my case due to space limitations), while mangalitsas are famed for the incredible quality of their meat. My Kunekune sows are partially mixed with AGH (American Guinea Hog), which has influenced their features as well.
By blending the breeds, I hope to combine the meat quality and build of the mangalitsas with the temperament, size, and grazing tendencies of the kunekunes.
Both Pepper and Ginger were bred back to Oscar for summer 2018 litters!
Pepper farrowed 6/14/2018 (litter is 50% mangalitsa/37.5% Kunekune/12.5% AGH)
Ginger farrowed 6/24/2018 (litter is 75% mangalitsa/25% Kunekune and AGH)
I still have three gilts available. All are blondes with some spots. Because the piglets look similar, I cannot guarantee which gilts came from which litter. They are $200 each or $500 for all three.
