Large Black Hogs

Update 6/24/24:  Now taking reservations for Fall 2024 and Spring 2025 litters!

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 Large Black Pig Breeders United, 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!

Greener Days Defender 28/1 9596


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. He sired his first two lovely litters of little Large Blacks in September 2022.

2021 Sow
