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. Our pigs are fed a pelleted feed along with pasture grass (summer) or alfalfa hay (winter). 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!!!
Hedwig has been sold but we may have some of his piglets on the way this fall yet.
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.
East Island Farm Jenny 3+ - Charlotte Sow DOB: 7/6/18
Charlotte is boarding here temporarily and is such a sweetheart!! She has a beautiful head and was evaluated as an excellent example of the kunekune breed. She just weaned her fall litter and will be going back to Oregon to her family this fall.
Painted Oak Ridge Rona 1 - Josie Gilt DOB: 7/21/20
Josie was born here - she has an excellent growth rate and wonderful personality. She is a nice, solid girl with thick legs and laid back personality. Josie took 3rd place in her class at the Heartland Kunekune Show in 2021! We can't wait to see her piglets this fall!
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! Zoey has an excellent growth rate and has been a wonderful addition to our herd.
Zoey was bred for August babies and is starting to show!
Painted Oak Ridge Jenny 2 - Sasha Gilt DOB: 8/14/22
Sasha was a gilt we kept out of Charlotte - she's a solid girl with nice topline and legs and a wonderful personality.
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. We'll try to get an updated picture of Oscar when he's out of the mud!
Oscar is a proven boar - you can see a gilt out of him on our sale page! We're not sure yet if he's the sire to the whole litter, we'll know when DNA comes back.
