Heritage Pigs

The Large Black Hog

A lean yet micro-marbled for a moist product on the grill or in the oven. The texture of the pork is extra tender due to the short muscle fibers which has earned it a place in some of the most exclusive restaurants in New York and Europe. The meat is slightly darker in color with an old world flavor.

    With fewer than 300 registered breeding hogs living today, the Large Black is listed as endangered by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. It was once one of the most popular breeds of pigs in Europe until pork production moved indoors by huge commercial hog operations.

    We are one of only two farms in Eastern Canada who have breeding stock registered with the Canadian Livestock Records Corporation (CLRC)

    Please Contact us if you are looking to purchase pure breed regitsered stock.
