Looking for a great homestead pig or hoping to expand your herd with a gentle pig that has great foraging abilities? If so, look no further!
We have a select number of purebred registered American Guinea Hog piglets available as breeders and feeders from two separate litters.
We hold the piglets for 10-12 weeks before selling any potential breeding stock (unlike most places that sell at 6-7 weeks). That means we have additional time to evaluate the piglets and only sell the best of the litter.
If you just want to raise pigs for the freezer, we also have feeders available. They produce a flavorful, marbled red pork (not like the pale, bland, factory meat) in about a year.
Email or give us a call today to reserve your piglet!The first litter will be ready for new homes after 5/26, second litter after 7/4. Breeding stock is $225 each while feeders are $150 each.
Spring is almost here in Wisconsin! That means that we are now taking pre-orders for our pastured Freedom Ranger chickens and grass-fed lamb. We also have fiber sheep available: lambs, yearlings and ewes. We are taking deposits for our spring litter of American Guinea Hog piglets (almost all sold though!) and can take pre-orders for our fall litter.
Chickens are available around July 4th and have an average weight of 4.5 lbs. They are free-range (with a predator-safe home at night), supplemented with certified organic feed produced by a small, local mill.
Lambs are ready in the fall (generally October or November depending on the pastures.) Lambs are 100% grass-fed.
We are also expecting some great fiber lambs this year from our Leicester Longwool and Shropshire rams crossed to our CVM/Romeldale, Romney and CVM/Romeldale x Blue Face Leicester ewes. We can’t wait to see what beautiful fiber they produce! We also have two yearlings, three ewes and our Shropshire ram available now. Lambs would be available around July or August.
There may be a few piglets left from our American Guinea Hog litter. They will be ready for pickup around mid-May. Piglets are given grain only as a treat but instead consume pasture, hay, sprouted barley fodder, fresh goat’s milk, kitchen scraps and veggies from a local vegetable farmer. Piglets are not given vaccinations or antibiotics and are not castrated/altered in any way.
If you are interested in any of these products, please let us know as soon as possible as we have sold out of items in the past.
Yesterday Olivia, our American Guinea Hog, gave birth to her first litter of piglets! We had just checked her a hour earlier and there were no babies. So when the kids came running in, yelling about piglets, we thought it was an April Fools Day joke. Nope. We were able to see the last two being born!
While she birthed nine babies, we have lost two over the past 24 hours. It is a hard truth to farming and one that never gets easier for us. But with any luck, seven babies and Olivia will be out squealing and running around the green pastures within a month or so!
PS: Sorry the picture isn’t the greatest. For some reason, they just didn’t want to cooperate…
