Kune Kune pigs are small, very even-tempered and docile; their name means 'fat and round' in Maori! A couple are being reared alongside some Gloucester Old Spots and Saddlebacks to clear the old kitchen garden at Kingston Lacy House, a National trust owned property in Dorset.

Thanks for sharing your photo of the kune kune - I love the pic. Ut's great when pigs are able to forage for food and root about in the mud!
I have kept Saddleback pigs which are a great hardy breed and make good mothers and can have a large litter.

ive just discovered Kune Kune pigs and really want one, i think she/he would make a lovely addition to my mini farm. Ive never had pigs before so lots or reading is being done at the momemt.
i also am trying to re-home one rather than buy as there are so many out there them, if you hear of any please let me know!
im calling defra today to obtain my holding number and the building of a shelter will commence this weekend!
Any advice greatly recievedIf it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and looks like a duck then it could be a cow doing a duck impersonation.

Crazy Chick, Pigs are extremley social animals, they need to be in pairs or more, 1 pig will be very lonely and miserable. I love pigs, If I had a farm I would have lots of piggies!!Posted 1 year ago #
