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.
On our little homestead we do not use chemcials. We try to raise all our animals as naturally as possible, out in the awesome sunshine on good woodlands and meadows! We have a well rounded homestead with Nigerian Dwarf Milk Goats, Angora Goats, Shetland Sheep, American Guinea hogs, Mini hogs and chickens. (more...)
We produce heritage breed Delaware chickens. Our pastured poultry produce large eggs. Our birds live in the great outdoors without growth hormones or medicated feeds. Although we primarily sell eggs for hatching we always have plenty to go around. We have recently acquired some Barred Hollands, one rooster and three hens. (more...)
