New Pigs Posted For Sale!

Check out our Sales page of information on the current crop of piglets available.

We only sell 100% purebred, registered KuneKune piglets.  While the breed in gaining in popularity, the ONLY way to make sure you have a true KuneKune is to buy registered animals.  Registered animals are DNA tested to ensure parentage and permanently identified with a microchip.  If temperament, grazing ability, easy keeping, and size are important to you make sure to do your research.  These pigs make great land managers, companion animals, or meat animals.

Slower growing means easier on the land and the human managers!  These pigs are ALWAYS worth the wait – no matter what their end purpose is.

Nora’s litter is 8 weeks old and ready to rumble!  These piglets are sturdy, curious and feisty pigs!

Ophelia’s litter is about 10 days old and growing well!  They are pig wrestling, trying to stay cool, and starting to explore more  and more!

A limited number of breeding pairs will be available by purchasing piglets from Nora’s litter to combine with a piglet from Ophelia’s litter.

These piglets are 100% pasture raised.  They are farrowed in a secure pen in the field and raised with the sow for the first few weeks and then integrated into the herd.  Our pigs are used in our management intensive rotational grazing program along with cattle and sheep.  They are around dogs and other animals from very early.

2018 Live animal and meat requests

As a light dusting of snow falls outside, we are forced indoors to work on planning!  As a result we have been able to start our 2018 animal request spreadsheets!  Doesn’t that sound like fun!!

 

If you have been looking to add Babydoll Sheep, KuneKune Pigs, or Scottish Highland cattle to your life, let me know. We anticipate lambing to start in mid to late March, piglets should start early April, and calves will drop April or May.  

 

We will also start meat share lists for lamb, pork, and potentially beef. What is available depends on animals being retained or sold for breeding.  If you prefer to raise your own meat, we can accommodate that as well.

 

Feel free to reach out with which list(s) you’d like be on and any questions you may have! As always thank you for your support of us and all small farmers!

Oh, how time flies!

I am not sure where the rest of the fall went after August, but here we are in Winter and 2018!  Our lovely Scottish Highland bull Arturo, did find a lovely new pasture to make beautiful babies!  We trust he is doing well in Yakima, Washington.  The farm is doing well this winter and the animals are enjoying not being in 3 feet of snow! We did get one storm come through, but only produced about 6 inches of lovely light, fluffy snow!

We also added a few more pigs to our mix – a breeding pair Nora and Chester; acquired a new breeding ram for our sheep and reduced the number of ewes this year; We also gained a foster cat – Muffles (shown checking out Nora below and snuggling with his buddy Poco)! Whew!  


Ophelia (Jenny x Mahia Love) – born in 2017, will be growing up at Balanced Earth Farm for potential breeding 2018 or 2019!

Finally, we also had a hen decide that October was the perfect time to hatch out that clutch of chicks she’d been wanting all year!  On the night of a predicted 4″ of rain – she came out with her babies, proud as can be!

Life is always an adventure here and sometimes we are too tired to post, but please always feel free to email us!  Looking to get on prospective lamb, pork, beef, piglet or live lamb lists – drop us a line at dana@balancedearthfarm.com!
