Have you ever bought the cheapest piglets that you could find on Craigslist, and put them on pasture, only to find that they dig a hole to China while not actually eating any forage? They aren't weather hardy and they don't put on weight in the pasture. We've been there, and we know how frustrating that is. Now that we have pigs that were bred for grazing, we find that they almost prefer lush grass over a bucket of grain!


We breed pure Idaho Pasture Pigs (IPP's), and also crosses of IPP's and Mangalitsas in half-manga or quarter-manga. The pure IPP's will grow a little faster than the crosses. The manga crosses will have heavier larding and be more weather hardy. All are excellent grazers.


We recommend that you supplement their grazing with 3-5 lbs of grain per day. You could feed less, but they will grow slower. During the winter, they will eat hay along with their grain. They also love to eat fallen apples and table scraps. If their grain is supplemented with minerals or kelp, they will probably not root unless you leave them in one place for too long.


Our pigs are fed a diet of wild forage in the summer and organic hay in the winter, supplemented with non-gmo grain. We do not give them hormones, vaccines or antibiotics.

We generally have weaned piglets available in spring, and sometimes in the fall.


If you want an intact boar or the choice of female piglets for breeding, please purchase our Breeding Stock option on our products page rather than this item. If you purchase this item, you get your choice of gilts on a first come, first serve basis on pick up day.

Our IPP sows and boar are NOT registered, meaning that we do not sell registered stock.
