Upcoming Litters/Farrowing Schedule

This farrowing schedule is tentative for the upcoming year, depending on the usual variables… and, because you know, pigs!

• Meishan litters are marked as *Meishan*, all other litters are pairings of pure & registered Kunekune pigs.

• Line breedings are indicated as such, all other breedings are either outcrosses or regular/diversity breedings. Pairing two pigs that share the same bloodline isn’t necessarily line breeding. Line breeding indicates closer, more specific relations purposefully chosen to lock in specific traits in the resulting offspring.

• We retain the top 1-2 piglets from each litter for observation, unless otherwise specified.

• We maintain waiting lists for litters. Once a litter is on the ground and piglets are 1-2 weeks old, we begin taking deposits.
