KuneKune (pronounced "cooney cooney) are classified as a rare pig breed. They were originally discovered in New Zealand in association with the Maori tribes that raised this breed as a food source. Kune's are known to be able to fatten on grass and seldom root in the ground like other pigs species due to their short upturned snouts making them much easier on pasture and fencing. They do not need to be tamed or socialized as they are naturally friendly and get along well with other animal species. The size can range 200 - 250 lbs for sows and up to 300 lbs for boars, making them suitable for any size farm. Piglet above is out of Salsa and is SOLD.

Kune Kune Pigs are becoming popular for "pasture pork" i.e. healthy grass fed meat that is nicely marbled with excellent taste. WBF pigs get organic grain, pasture, and organic A2 milk and whey. On pasture with plenty of sunshine, Kune Kune meat and fat is richer in micro nutrients, fat soluble vitamins E and D, as well as selenium. Green grass provides major source of Omega-3's and dominant fat on pork that is pasture raised is monounsaturated fat. Photo above is piglet out of Ziggy, SOLD.
