Slow Farm Kunekune Pigs

Call it passion or obsession, but once we experienced kunekune pigs we were hooked.

Kunes are grazing pigs that gently improve pastures and woodlands by foraging for plants without rooting the soil and disrupting mycelia systems  And even better, they are lovable, sociable, mellow additions to any farm or homestead and co-graze extremely well with other species. We believe kunes could change land management and pork production for small scale sustainable farmers. Read on for more info!

Our start…

Like many people, we read about and loved the idea of kunekune pigs, but were intimidated by the prices and lack of availability. So when an acquaintance had to relocate and offered us an amazing deal on five unregistered kune females, we jumped on it! We had no idea how smitten we would be and what was coming next...

For Rachel, who had grown up with full size conventional breeds as well as cranky potbelly pigs, kunes were a total epiphany.
