WELCOME to GREEN ACRES!
We are breeders of registered kunekune pigs. Breeding to preserve these pigs while concentrating on pork production, and adhering to breed standards. You can follow our farm on Facebook at Green Acres kunekune pigs. www.facebook.com/greenacreskunekunepigs/ Our farm focus is to produce the best red marbled pork you have put in your mouth. Yes, it is red! Pork is not meant to be the other white meat; heritage pork is the other red meat. We want to wow you with this rare treat. In talking to a wise man, he told me kunekunes have to have a purpose if they are going to be preserved. That purpose is food. It took me a while to understand this.
Preservation through Utilization!
These are not mini pigs. Lets stop right there if you think so. My herd is larger line pigs. These are slow growing so you will never reach a 300 lb size by 12 mo. which is about the time we want to harvest. 9 to 16 mo. is target depending on growth of pig.
Kunekunes are a docile, gentle breed, with minimal to no rooting. Yes, you heard that right. No Rooting! (Ive heard and seen some folks claim their kunekunes do root badly, and maybe they are missing some minerals or just love tasty grubs. Not sure but can tell you that we have had many many kunekunes over the years here and we do not experience this behavior. Come see my diva pig farm as some call it. Ha! They are a grass grazing pig growing into the most delicious tasty pork. It is the perfect size pig for the homesteaders growing their own food. They are also perfect for the 'nose to tail' chefs that love the ease of a smaller pig to butcher with the most amazing pork you will ever eat due to the slow growing nature of these pigs. The pork is not meant to be rushed and this is why it is so special. These pigs are rare in the pork world, which makes their pork that much rarer. There are still so many people that have never heard of them. That makes educating the public first and foremost with us.
