Heritage Breed American Guinea Hogs Arrive at Unity College Barn

Please join the Unity College Animal Barn in welcoming our new breeding pair of American Guinea Hog heritage breed meat pigs, listed as Critical Breed Status by The Livestock Conservancy. ‘Luna’ (pictured) and her partner ‘Lurch’ were provided by Sunnywood Farm in Unity and are part of an effort to re-introduce this hearty, medium sized foraging breed to the American Homestead.

These pigs will help us close the loop on campus food systems by converting food prep waste into manure, piglets, and pork products to be utilized by dining services. Our first litter is due the second week in June so stay tuned for some adorable AGH piglets.
