Gardens and pigs are a perfect combination. Overgrown zucchinis? Retiring the bean plants? Picked piles of weeds? The pigs are more than happy to take care of that for you and transform the garden extras and rejects into delicious pork and fertile manure.
On our farm, we raise heritage Kunekune pigs (originally from New Zealand), which are short, round, jovial creatures. Their longer fur keeps them warmed in the winter, and their shorter snouts mean they don’t root as much as standard hogs. But, oh, do those Kunekune pigs love the variety of foods they get to enjoy on the farm!
