Kunekune means Fat & Round
Heritage breeds are traditional livestock breeds that were raised by our forefathers. Farmers learned to keep and breed only the animals that thrived and provided a good return for the farmer's investment of feed, shelter and labor. These farming systems produced breeds of animals that are still productive today adapted to local conditions a key feature to heritage breeds. ~ Livestock Conservancy
Kunekune pigs have a docile and friendly sociable nature and a tendency not to roam. The pigs at East 80 Farm love their human contact and a good scratch!
