KuneKune Pigs

Our Piggy Story

     I had never heard of a Kunekune pig before. In first grade, when my mind was open to any possibilities, I found the book "Hope" by Randy Houk.  "Hope" is about a pig living on a factory farm. She got her foot caught in the wire floored cage. It got infected and she could not walk. The workers threw her into a nearby dumpster. Someone heard her and took her to a rescue where she saw sunlight, felt the grass and got love for the first time.
     I realized that the best way to teach people about these wonderful pigs would be to appreciate them! I first began my search by visiting a Red Wattle ranch. The pigs were very nice and the people were extremely kind. However, rooting was a big problem for us. We have a nice, big pasture in front of our house and did not want it to get torn up. With a lot of research, I found the




​​

          only non-rooting pig, a Kunekune. For the next six months, I went to all the possible sites to find a breeder. We gained our first three pigs: Camora, Alice, and Harrison from Virgina Kunekunes.

     We began with a small heard of two gilts and a boar in the summer of 2017. We purchased our three piglets and picked them up from the Albuquerque airport. "When Pigs Fly" became a reality for me. We brought them safely to our rural Mancos Valley home in Colorado.

We will offer air transport. The charge will include a crate, transportation to the ABQ airport,  a veterinarian checks up and the plane cost. Please contact me if you are intrested in this alternative option and we will set it up. 

History
The Kunekune pig was almost extinct in the 1970's. Originating in New Zealand, the Kune pigs were owned by the native Maori peoples. "Kunekune," pronounced "Kooney Kooney," means "fat and round" in Maori. The pigs lived near the homes of the villagers in New Zealand, thus their docile nature. Michael Willis and John Simister saved the Kunekune population from extinction. They visited the island and gathered together all of the remaining Kune pigs. 
  • 1970 - 18 Pigs left
  • 1980 - 50 Pigs left
  • 2010 - 1000 Pigs left
In 1995 the first KuneKune pig set foot in America!

​​What Makes Our KuneKune Pigs Specail

Our KuneKune Pigs:
  • Live and fatten on grass and organic feed. The grasses are a mixture of orchard and Timothy grasses.  Closest to the ground is a soft layer of purple clover (their favorite).
  • Have access to grass in the spring, summer, and fall.  In the winter, they eat hay grown on our ranch (no sprays). They also get apples from our trees to eat throughout the fall and we save some for winter!
  • Experience Colorado's high elevation, which means that the piglets can easily adjust to different climates.
  • It's "Piggy Time!"
