Large Black Hogs

Update 5/15/22:  Litters planned  fall 2022. Now taking reservations!

Helping Save an Endangered Heritage Breed!

We're thrilled to add this rare breed of British pig to our farm! The Large Black is a critically endngered breed of heritage pig, and we have selected excellent foundation breeding stock to help preserve and improve the breed.

Like our Gloucestershire Old Spots, Large Blacks are excellent foragers with exceptional mothering skills, making them ideally suited for raising their litters on pasture.

Their meat is succulent and richly marbled, producing tender, moist cuts with incomparable flavor.

We are members of the Large Black Hog Association, and sell breeding stock as well as feeder piglets. Please contact us early to reserve!

We also occasionally have GOS/LBH crosses, which some argue produce pork that surpasses the quality of either breed alone. Plus, they don't come cuter than black pigs with white socks and pink noses!

2021 Boar

Description: Sirius is a goofy, friendly boar with a curious and outgoing personality. He follows us around, walking right alongside us, hoping for extra ear scratches or an opportuntity to squeak his nose against your rubber boot. He's super easy to handle, and we love his laid-back personality. We look forward to seeing his first offspring, coming fall 2022.
