The American Guinea Hog is probably one of the best kept secrets in whole wide world of pork. Unfortunately, we've never been very good at keeping secrets. In fact, if you plan to pull off an elaborate, high-stakes bank robbery or cheat on a math quiz, it's probably best you don't tell us, because we're complete blabber mouths. So since we can't resist dishing about our fantastic heritage livestock finds, we’ve dedicated this entire section of our website to the succulent splendor that is the American Guinea Hog.

Besides being blessed with stunning good looks and eyelashes for days, the American Guinea Hog has long held the nickname "kitchen window pig." Why? Well for one thing, just look at that face! Who wouldn't want to look out the kitchen window to see that adorable snout rooting around, oinking coyly at the first site of an apple? The main reason they have this nickname though is due to their sparkling personality and laid back swagger – earning them prime real estate right outside the kitchen window where table scraps could easily be thrown out as snacks throughout the day. They're known for their friendly disposition, hardiness in a variety of climates, and thrive on a broad range of available foods. Before the sink garbage disposal, there was the American Guinea Hog.

 

Guinea hogs come in a variety of sizes and shapes, but generally are one-third to one-half the size of today’s domestic hogs. Adults can range from 175lbs-300lbs for mature boars and 125lbs-200lbs. Feeders are typically processed between 6-12 months, yielding a carcass size of 50-100 lbs. Many have upright or pricked ears and a curly tail.  Some have toplines that are relatively level and others are a bit more rounded. Most are solid black, but occasionally a Guinea hog will have some reddish tinting, white socks, or even some white or gray on the body.

 

Guinea hogs are known for their mothering ability. Regardless of size, sows are capable of farrowing and producing robust, energetic piglets without human assistance. This was a big selling point for us, since we are often busy being midwives to some of our other livestock breeds.

 

If you’re looking for a breed that is moderately sized, hardy, well socialized and yields some of the best tasting pork you’ll ever have, the Guinea Hog is an ideal choice. Once you discover how cool they are, you won’t be able to keep it a secret either.
