Livestock Breeder, specializing in registered miniature breeds of pigs.
We are a small scale operation with focus on producing healthy pigs from registered stock only. We are members of the AKPR, AKKPS, and JPAR. Our Kunekune and Juliana are all purebred, pedigreed, and registered.
Miss Charlotte is JPAR registered and our premier Juliana sow. She is 5+ years old, under 75 pounds, and 15” tall. She is fully mature and a wonderful size. *She is one week post partum here, so please give a little grace on that baby belly.
Wilbur is 5+ years old, and our Juliana stud. He is JPAR registered, weighing under 80 pounds, and 16” tall. With tusks and all, he is still a very sweet boy, and loves for his ears to be rubbed behind.
KUNEKUNE.Minnie is Sally x BH Tutaki, daughter of Buffi, black/white, double wattled, registered with both AKKPS and AKPR.
KUNEKUNE. AKPR and AKKPS registered, handsome build, and insanely sweet personality. Jerry Garcia is a our studly Mahia Love x Sally boar.
BUFFY THE ACORN SLAYER
KUNEKUNE. AKKPS and AKPR registered.
Buffy is a double wattled Sally x Ru and my ideal producer of pet quality piglets. She is over 3 years old and well under 100 pounds. Very petite girl, with a personality to make up for it! Her color varies from a rich cream to an almost strawberry blonde at times.
KUNEKUNE. Reba is registered with both AKPR and AKKPS. Jenny x Mahia Love. Double wattled, bright ginger/black, and beautiful build.
KUNEKUNE. Kereopa x Ru gilt. Double registered, AKPR and AKKPS. Great round/stout build.
Elvis, the King of Pigs. He and I were meant to be! Absolutely handsome and well rounded Te Whangi Kunekune boar. Double wattled, and registered thru the AKPR (soon to also be AKKPS). Beautiful and bright ginger/black, to boot.
Oh my heart. Miss Perdita is my spirit animal and completes me. She is the best of both worlds, being Kunekune personality and Juliana sized traits. Her wattles are simply icing on the cake.
Perdita is our first “home grown” Kunekune x Juliana cross, and from fully registered lines to boot. We plan to cross her back to a full Kunekune (Andrew boar) with the offspring being 3/4 Kunekune and sporting similar traits, tho carrying the 1/4 Juliana trait of petite size.
Our future JPAR Juliana Mama.She is daughter of Wilbur and Charlotte, and will be the successor of both. Once Charlotte retires, Miss Piggy Pudding will be of age (2) and ready to step in.
Wilbur has retired, and in steps our JPAR Juliana boar in training, of course once of age.
ABOUT OUR FARM:
Our shared family farm is located on the Oostanala River and foothills of the Appalachians.
All of our animals are free range, to the most feasible extent. The pigs share well sewn pastures with mini cows and Nigerian Dwarf goats, and enjoy access to streams and wooded areas. Our various chickens and Ancona ducks forage in the woods, stream beds, and open fields. The rabbits have hutches on the ground only, and tractored daily. Even our Poodles are free range farm hands.
Livestock is typically removed from pasture during birthing and up to the first 2-4 weeks after, just depending. Males are always separate, other than instances of a selected breeding. We’d keep them together, but don’t care to mass produce.
Otherwise, they own the land just as much as we do.
