THE GRAZING PIG!

THE BEST PIGS EVER!

For the Best Customers

Courtesy of the American KuneKune Pig Registry

The Kunekune Pig (pronounced "cooney cooney") is one of the smallest breeds of pigs. It was developed by the first people of New Zealand.  The KuneKune pigs were near extinction in their homeland until two animal preservationists worked to develop a sustainable herd and thus saved the breed from extinction in the 1970s.  The Kunekune Pig is finding a serious niche market for small farms, in sustainable farming systems, for permaculture, and with chefs. 

Adult Kunes- still growing in their third to fourth year - are small in stature with gilts/sows weighing as little as 100 pounds and up to approximately 185 pounds.  Boars are heavier being that they develop "armor" as a secondary sex characteristic and, like most males in the species, are generally larger than females.  Boars can get up to 200 pounds and more, but a boar weighing 250 is considered to be on the high end. In the past, many pig breeds were "wattled" or "tasseled" with fleshy appendages hanging from the lower jaw near the neck, but this characteristic is considered to be very rare in the present day.  Kunekunes are a wattled breed, but many purebred Kunekunes do not have wattles and some have only one. 

The most notable attribute of the Kunekune Pig is that their temperament is very docile. Boars are generally very gentle and amenable to keepers, sows, and piglets. Boars quickly resolve their power struggle with each other and can be housed together in small or large groups. Sows have strong mothering tendencies without aggression toward handlers.  Squealing piglets may concern sows, however, they  will "call" to the distressed piglet rather than become protective in an aggressive manner. 

Kunekunes make great pasture pigs being unique in their ability to graze and do well on grass with little needed in the way of supplementation. Their short, upturned snout speaks to their ability to graze and to the fact that they are not prone to root. They also do not challenge fences so they are easier to confine than commercial pigs. There is a niche market for "grass fed", "pasture raised", "free ranging" pork. The Kunekune Pigs have fabulous well-marbled meat which insures a viable future for this small, heritage breed. The pigs have many additional uses within the sustainable systems of small farms, for educational farms, and in agritourism.

Because KuneKunes already have the BEST temperaments, we have to focus our breeding program on  other things... So we have selected to breed KuneKunes that are more to the original size. Many breeders in the USA are trying to make the KuneKune bigger and bigger and breeding them so they weigh much more than the original imports. One of the reasons we selected this breed in the first place was because of their size. Perfect for the homesteader and not so intimidating to women and children.  We also like pigs that don't root so that is another trait we are looking at in our breeding program so our pigs have shorter snouts than some you will find.  Color is also a fun bonus to this breed so we love to mix it up and produce all colors that are available.
