Red Wattles are a heritage breed of hog that still remain on the threatened list of the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. They have a reputation for having lean flavorful meat. They are mellow, easy to handle, and hardy enough to thrive in outdoor facilities. Even in colder climates.
We specialize in selling weaned feeder pigs and quality breeding stock. We do however raise pigs to market weight and will gladly raise one for you if you have neither the time or space.
Their hardy attributes allow the red wattles to thrive outside on pasture without suffering leg or other injuries. This is especially important since our animals are raised outside. we want an animal that requires little in the form of extra maintenance.
We don't sell any breeding stock that we wouldn't keep ourselves.
We raise crops and livestock here in Southern Michigan. Please see our 'for sale' page for expected farrowing dates as well individual animals that are up for sale from time to time.
The goal on our farm is to keep production up and stress levels down. Our animals are raised naturally, outside, in the fresh air. We are not certified organic; however, we do grow our own non-GMO corn, and our feed does not contain hormones or antibiotics. We want our animals to work for us without unnecessary, unhealthy additives.
