We don't care about "purebred", we care about affordable, healthy, humane meat, good mothering, and agreeable personality. I have ongoing batches of piglets coming out, tapering down for winter. Black, or grey and white. Male, female, a few barrows. We are a fledgling mini farm focused on humane treatment and dispatch of animals used for food. We follow the Polyface Farms concepts. These guys were raised on pasture, and also in a pen on local hay and minimal grain (Excel BYB), veggie goodies, building compost for next year's gardens. No shots, no needle teeth clipped, and this barrow situation is a limited thing. We will no longer be castrating after this batch. as we detected no flavor difference in the herd between sow, barrow, and boar. Therefore, in the spirit of humane treatment, we see no reason to continue this practice. In case you are new to small pigs, these guys grow out to be 150 to 200 lbs in 1.5 to 2 years, depending on grain input. They go to fat VERY easily, and therefore are ideal for thrifty eating on almost entirely all forage. This computes to a smaller pig, but a super cheap feed bill. Ideal for homesteads and small properties. We find butchering at anywhere from 7 months to a year to be ideal for our family. We fed easily 40 people on on 7 month old. The meat is dense and very robust flavor because of their diet, and is rich red meat, not white. We are looking for folks that want to grow their own small homestead or heritage pork, or folks looking to buy processed pork in 2020 or 2021. We have been growing small pigs for 8 years, but moved to our 13 acres and started Beggs n Achin' officially in 2018.
* Also, starting in Spring 2020, we will be introducing "Porkarena" a Hampshire/Duroc gilt into the mix. She will be paired with our orange spotted AGH Kune Kune boar for a bigger pig w less fat, and still retain the great traits we already have.
