The Guinea Hog is a small, black breed of swine that is unique to the United States, and was once the most numerous pig breed found on homesteads in the Southeast. The Guinea Hog became rare in recent decades as the habitat of the homestead hog disappeared. Today, Guinea Hogs are appropriate for use in diversified, sustainable agriculture. They are an excellent choice where there is need for the services of hogs (such as grazing, rooting, tilling compost and garden soil, and pest control) and also the desire for a small breed.
