Meet the unique grazing pigs called KuneKunes
The KuneKune Pig is a delightful breed of swine once near certain extinction. They were only found in New Zealand and kept by the Maori people. They are known for their smaller size, extremely laid back, docile, friendly personalities and ease of handling. These smaller, heritage grazing pigs are great for homesteaders and smaller acre farms as well. They fit into many niche markets from pets, to orchard clean up crew, breeding stock and amazing marbled pork production. Join us and learn more about this incredible breed.
