The Kunekune (Koonie Koonie) pig is as fun to raise and enjoyable to eat as it is to say. A rare heritage breed that originates from New Zealand, the kunekune’s small size and docile, friendly temperament make them the perfect breed for permaculture homesteads and small farms.
The kunekune is known for its ability to thrive on pastures loaded with grasses, legumes, and brassicas. The kunekune is an easy keeper and super hearty
They are good mothers, easy to keep in large groupings, and don’t tend to challenge fences or roam.
As a heritage breed lard pig, they grow slowly and without the need for excessive amounts of feed.
They produce a naturally red colored and deeply marbled meat with an outstanding and rememberable flavor.
