The kunekune (cooney cooney) is a small pig breed originally from New Zealand. Kunekune are adorable pigs with a round build and some have wattles hanging from their lower jaws. Their color ranges from black and white, to ginger, cream, gold-tip, black, brown and some have mixed colors.
Kunes are perfect for small farms and are known for their kind personalities, this personality is unmatched by any other breed of swine. Their short and upturned snouts make them suitable grazers and less prone to rooting found in other breeds. KuneKune pigs are not meat eaters and vegetarians. They are excellent pets, however many people enjoy their delectable pork taste unlike any you have ever tasted.
Pork is not the other white meat! Commercially raised pigs have long been bred for fast growth and lean muscle mass. Older, more traditional breeds (like Kunes) are slower growing but produce a much richer, redder meat. This is why we wait 14 to 18 months for our Kunes to grow to market weight as opposed to raising more traditional breeds that reach weight much faster. Kune meat from our farm will be deep pink to red, and marbled throughout with gorgeous, tasty fat. The meat is rich in flavor and high in nutrients, having grown primarily on grass, hay and garden produce.
We offer Kunekune Pork when we have it in stock.
