Livestock - Swine - Red Wattle

Our Red Wattle hogs are pasture and grain fed with no hormones. We have full blood red wattle weaned piglets for sale. They produce an exceptionally lean meat that has been described as flavorful, tender juicy with a rich beef-like taste and texture. According to The Livestock Conservancy the meat is a chief's choice for pork. In a Pork taste Test, the Red Wattle won! Red wattles produce what is possibly the best tasting pastured pork in the world. In blind taste tests conducted by renowned St. Louis chef and owner of Chanterelle Catering, Julie Ridlon, Red Wattle pork was named "the best pork", beating out many other breeds. Red Wattle hogs are known for hardiness, foraging activity, and very good growth rate. The sows are excellent mothers, farrow litters of 7-12 piglets, and provide good quantities of milk for their large litters. They have a mild temperament. Their active foraging makes them a good choice for consideration in outdoor or pasture-based swine production. Their gentle nature recommends them to the small-scale, independent producer.
