Welcome to Thorcrest Kunekunes! We are a small working farm and our kunekunes are for breeding and pasture raised pork. We fell in love with this breed after extensive research. Having raised landrace/yorkshire weaner to market pigs for many years, we wanted something a more sustainable size and would forage without so much land destruction from rooting. Kunekunes more than fit this requirement and they are gentle and love to interact with people. They love to graze grass, dandelions and chicory are high on there list as well as sow thistle, quickweed, chickweed, sheeps sorrel and many other so called weeds. Although of course they enjoy some concentrates for extra energy and minerals. they are perfect size for a smaller farm and for todays health conscious who want smaller cuts that are higher in over nutrients from grazing grass.
We evaluate piglets to determeine if they are breeding stock. If you are interested in our kunekunes for breeding stock please click here to go to our waitlist and information page.
