About Us / The USA Herd - American Kunekune Pigs History: Our farm was established in 1991 when we moved to Riverside County, California seeking to give our family a better life. We were surrounded by old dairy farms and equestrian property which inspired us to purchase horses, first, and then livestock. We added swine to the operation in 1995 with the addition of our first Yorkshire sow. From that point, we experimented with various breeds until in the year 2000 when we obtained our first Kunekune Pig, a heritage breed of relatively small stature. In 2005, we imported the seed stock for our Kunekune Pig breeding program from the UK and established the registry for the breed with our first litter in June of 2006. We spent the next four years providing others with their foundation breeding stock on farms in California, Hawaii, Alaska and all across the country including New York, North Carolina, Virginia, and elsewhere. Another import was accomplished in 2010 directly from New Zealand where the Maori people developed the breed which was close to extinction in the 1970's. We added valuable diverse genetics to our farm and continued to promote the breed and create progeny with exceptional vigor, size, rate of growth, improved conformation for pasture, and excellent carcass quality and yield.
Currently, we promote the breed as a meat pig, perfect for charcuterie and rivaling the attributes given to both the Berkshire and Mangalitsa breeds, tasty marbled pork with plenty of clean and sweet fat. Our pigs are raised on organic feed (Modesto Milling), grasses, hay and excess produce from the gardens which use only the cleanest methods of no pesticides or herbicides. We sell live pigs to buyers for oven roasting, luau, BBQ, whole hog roast, cuts, etc. Delivery to the state inspected custom slaughterhouse is available. USDA inspected slaughter is available upon request at an additional cost.
Our farm supports the use of rare, heritage breeds toward the goal of preservation. Kunekune Pigs are known as "the grazing pig".
