The Large Black hog breed was established in 1899 in the UK and almost went extinct in the 1970's until being brought back to a healthy population with the help of the Large Black Pig Breeders Unit, which has over 1,000 members raising this particular species. This breed is one of the few red meat porks available.
The Large Black hog is a good grazing pig that is slow growing. It takes up to three years for the pigs to mature out to the processing size that is desired around 400 pounds. However, the breeding stock weight averages the sows to grow to be over 600 pounds and boars well over 800 pounds.
Our farm also offers a small selection of fruit, including blueberries and figs.
