One of the best things about Kunekunes is their simplicity. They’re grass-fed, extremely docile, they don’t damage your fencing, and they even wean their own piglets if allowed to.
Sometimes I forget that my little farm, and everything it includes, isn’t exactly ‘the norm’ for most people.
Do you remember Wilbur from Charlotte’s Web? Poor, rambunctious little Wilbur that you wanted to pick up and hug? Or how about Porky Pig, with that cute little stutter and humble disposition? Oh, and Piglet, from Winnie the Pooh.
We bought our first pigs in 2009, and they were Yorkshires. My husband and I were so excited at the idea of all the bacon in our future. And pork chops. And ham sam’iches. Not to mention the thrill of adding a new animal to our farm.
