Pastured Protein Like No Other
Stillwater maintains a small herd of some very special pigs. Kunekunes are a rare heritage-breed pig originally raised by the Maori of New Zealand that nearly went extinct in the late 1970's. Since then, breeders in the UK and U.S. have worked to bring back this amicable pig that produces a slightly red meat with exceptional flavor. Unlike most production hogs that are raised on concrete or in small pens, our pigs roam a 5-acre pasture where they graze grass and are looked after by the farm's natural pig protection system, a gentle giant of a Great Pyrennes named Luna. We don't process many of these pigs, but when we do the pork sells out quick.
