We started our journey with kunekune pigs in 2014 and have learned a lot! Our family's goal in raising these beautiful pigs is correct conformation, friendly personality, and keeping the kunekune as the pasture pig that came over from New Zealand. We absolutely love that they come in different sizes and colors.
Hedwig joined our herd from Kunekune Preserve in NC. We are thrilled to be adding some new genetics to our herd - we loved the look of this little boar and after talking with Cyndi, we decided he should come and live in Iowa. Look at his gorgeous topline! (photo credit to Cyndi Berry)
This is a 2019 picture of Hedwig - he has filled out nicely. He is a gorgeous boar and he has such a sweet temperament. He has grown into a large (330#) and handsome boar. Hedwig won Champion Whakanui at the Heartland Kunekune Show in 2021!!!
We are beyond ecstatic to be adding this gorgeous boar to our farm. Red came to us after winning the Champion title in his class at the Heartland Kunekune Show in 2021. He is a gorgeous dark ginger/black with a solid structure and fantastic growth rate. A huge thanks to Elizabeth at DEW Farms in Texas for allowing us to keep Red in Iowa. We can't wait to see his babies in April 2022!
Black Valley Farm Tapeka 24 - Valley Girl Sow DOB: 4/7/18
We bought Valley Girl in early 2021. We love her size, her head, her color, and her personality. We will be breeding her to Hedwig for spring piglets and can't wait to see the results!
Mkono Rona 7 - Mika Sow DOB: 2/3/19
Mika came to us from Mkono Farm in Maryland via the Heartland Kunekune Show in 2019. Look at her gorgeous topline and solid structure. She has a nice growth rate and sweet personality - we love her so much. Mika is a wonderful mother and we absolutely adore her.
East Island Farm Jenny 3+ - Charlotte Sow DOB: 7/6/18
Charlotte was bred to a Whakanui and had 7 piglets on 8/14/21. She is boarding here temporarily and is such a sweetheart!! She has a beautiful head and was evaluated as a stellar example of the kunekune breed (this is why there is a + on her pedigree).
Painted Oak Ridge Rona 1 - Josie Gilt DOB: 7/21/20
Josie was bred and born here - she has an excellent growth rate and wonderful personality. Josie took 3rd place in her class at the Heartland Kunekune Show in 2021! We can't wait to breed her to Red for 2022 piglets.
DEW Farms Wilsons Gina - Zoey Gilt DOB: 4/10/21
We're so excited to add Zoey to our herd - she's a sweet and gorgeous Tapeka Trait gilt who joins us from DEW Farms in Texas! We'll likely breed her for fall 2022 piglets and can't wait!
Painted Oak Ridge Tonganui 1 - Oscar Boar DOB: 4/13/21
This is one of Valley Girl's piglets - and he is a cutie! Look at his wide little head and his nice topline. He is a solid little boar and we can't wait to see what he produces for us!
