American Guinea Hogs

This heritage and hardy breed of pig is perfect for the homestead or backyard grower. Growing to around 120 lb at a year old, this more manageable sized pig breed makes home butchering a little easier. Their rich dark and marbled meat, like pig breeds used to be 100 years ago, is tender and juicy and will not disappoint. They are an amazing carcass for Charcuterie. And the amount of lard you can get from one pig lends well to rendering for cooking, mixing in sausage mixes or adding to beef mixes and using for soap making as well.

Our full size AGH on our farm in Springfield, MO get fed about 3lb of a Non-GMO mix of grains daily along with goat milk bi-product from our farm, free-choice kelp meal and free-choice hay or forage from our fields and our wood lines. Finishing them off in fall on the massive amount of acorns that drop in our woods makes for a very tasty product.  We do not worm or medicate our pigs.

We use our AGH to our advantage around our homestead to till up and fertilize new garden areas or to disturb and kill weedy problem areas in our pastures in which we reseed behind them to improve our land for our other livestock. They are also put on barn clean up duty in the spring tilling over all the spent hay and straw bedding used over the winter for a quick break-down into compost. They receive hay in the winter along with their grain ration since foliage is not on the forest plants. And they look forward to it. We also supplement our AGH all cooked butchering scraps from our chicken and duck butchering as well as garden scraps through the growing season. They are a huge asset in keeping up a sustainable loop on our homestead and are a tool in our regenerative agriculture practices.

Pigs are herd animals and will not thrive alone so two must be purchased to raise together.

All male feeder piglets are castrated by a vet.

Potbelly/American Guinea Hog Mix

We rescued a sow and a barrow Potbelly pig pair a couple years back from being euthanized. We never intended to breed the female but one jail break and we had a batch of super cute piglets. We call this mix Lard² Pigs because the Potbelly and AGH are both a lard breed of pig.

We have not grown these out ourselves yet but the color array we got out of our AGH boar and our Potbelly sow are very fun. We imagine this would be a fine mix to raise out on a homestead.

Potbelly pigs are a popular meat and lard pig in many countries around the world. They grow at about the same pace as the AGH and like the AGH give quite a bit of lard as well for your homestead uses. They are easy to manage and have a great temperament.

…And who could resist those cute colors?!?

We feed our Potbelly’s the same as our AGH on our farm in Springfield, MO. They get fed about 3lb of a Non-GMO mix of grains daily along with goat milk bi-product from our farm, free-choice kelp meal and free-choice hay or forage from our fields and our wood lines. We do not worm or medicate our pigs.
