Two KuneKune pigs joined our homestead back in February 2020 and we have loved their addition! Louise and Wanda, sisters from Slow Farm, were the first to steal our hearts and made us pig owners. Louise surprised us with 6 healthy piglets in June 2020, three boys and three girls. We kept the 2 boys and castrated them ourselves with the purpose of adding one to our freezer in the Winter of 2021.
We added Jett, our boar from KuneKune Preserve, in April 2021 and plan to breed him to Wanda for a Fall 2021 litter expected around September.
Mini LaMancha Dairy Goats
In August 2020, we added two registered Mini LaMancha does to our homestead with one exposed to a buck just before her arrival. In November, we added a third doe as we quickly fell in-love with our small goats!
We added August, our buck, to our herd in February after an extended stay from December to help us expect some babies.
Unfortunately Goldie experienced a miscarriage in February so we kept August with her, hoping for a successful pregnancy. Windy welcomed a healthy doe on May 11th and we have named her Sonny May; she will live her life out as part of our herd. Lulu welcomed a healthy buck into the world on May 14th just before midnight; he will be headed to a farm near Lenoir, NC mid-July 2021.
