American Guinea Hogs:
The Guinea Hog is a small, black breed of swine that is unique to the United States. Known as the "Sustenance of the South", the breed was once the most numerous pig breed found on homesteads in the Southeast. (Livestock Conservancy)
The American Guinea Hog is the ideal sustainable heritage farm pig, known for its moderate size, excellent foraging abilities, friendly temperament, excellently flavored meat and indispensable lard. While the American Guinea Hog is smaller than industrial hog breeds, it is a good-sized farm pig providing a nice, well-marbled carcass. While American Guinea Hogs are suited to a wide variety of environments and will do better than most breeds on low grade forage, they prefer lush pastures with clover along with access to minerals, kitchen scraps, quality hay in winter, clean water to drink, access to a muddy wallow, minimal shelter from precipitation and wind, dry bedding, and perhaps a small amount of grain.

Kune Kune Pigs:
The Kunekune is a small breed of domestic pig originally from New Zealand. Kunekune are hairy, with a rotund build and may bear wattles hanging from their lower jaws. Their colors range from black and white, to ginger, cream, gold-tip, black, brown and tricolored. They have a docile, friendly nature, and – like the pot-bellied pig – are now often kept as pets. By the 1980's only an estimated 50 purebred Kunekune remained. With targeted recovery efforts, as of 2010, the breed no longer faces extinction. with breed societies in both New Zealand and the United Kingdom. In 1993 two were imported into the United States from the UK. Kunekune are suitable for a novice owner, as they are placid, friendly, and love human company. They are easy to train and intelligent. The natural habitat for Kunekune is woodland and pasture. Kunekune are very easy to manage as they have the ability to fatten on little more than grass. They are the only true grazing pig and can be maintained with grass alone without supplementary feeding. An acre of grass can sustain as many as 5 Kunekunes.
