We do not call our pigs Micro or Mini Pigs. We do not want to create a fause idea about our pigs to people who are looking for a small breed pet pig. We breed high percentage Kunekune crosses. They are 75% Kunekune breed and 25% Juliana Breed.
Most people who are looking to own a pet pig want a small pig with a great personallity and that is why we cross our Kunekune pigs with our Juliana pigs. Our pigs have the small size of the Juliana's with the amazing temperment of the kunekune's. They can average in size from 75lbs into the mid 100's. Do not believe that any pig stays mini. If you do not want a pig that is this large then a pig may not be the pet for you.
Each of our pet pigs will be fully vaccinated, de-wormed, toenail clipped, neutered and socialized before going to it's new home. All of our pet female pigs are sold with a spay contract or we can arrange for them to be done by our own veterinarian at an additional cost.

The Kunekune pigs originated in New Zealand. They were kept by the Maori people who allowed them to roam free. Kunekune means fat and round. This is the name the Maori people gave to thier beloved pigs. They choose these pigs because of their docil sweet natured temperment and natural desire for human companionship.
In the late 1970's these amazing little pigs were close to extinction. There was estimated only to be about 20 purebred Kunes left in the world. Two men, Michael Willis and John Simister started a Kunekune conservation program that saved the breed from extinction. After more herds were established they knew that it would be best to export some of the breeding stock to other countries to preserve the breed in case of a natural disaster or disease struck New Zealand. The first Kunekunes to be exported went to the UK in 1992.
Kunekunes first arrived in the US in 1996 and have been gaining in popularity for thier wide diversity. Kunekune pigs are unlike any other breed of swine. They are a small heritage breed. They are not a mini or a micro pig. Adult intact boars average from 150lbs to 375lbs while sows average from 75lb to 150lbs. Covered in hair they come in all colors. Having outstanding personality they are very calm, gentle and love human companionship. They are non aggressive in every way, getting along with all other types of livestock, pets and safe with children. Kunekunes are true grazing pigs which have short upturned snouts. This make them less prone to root and tear up your pastures. They are easy on fences and dont challange gates.
If kept as pets, They are very very smart and clean. They can be easily trained to be house broken, harness walked and obedient.
These are great muti-purpose pigs. Keep them for Pets, Breed Stock, Showing, Therapy Animals Consumption, or Pasture Maintenance.
