Bluefield Acres Porcine Bounty

According to the American Livestock Breeders Conservancy, in 2005 there were only 15 verifiable American Guinea Hogs left in the world. Well, there are quite a few more now, and we have several at Bluefield Acres that could use good homes. Ruby started the trend on October 21st with a litter of seven, followed by Ophelia on November 3rd with three, and Little Bit on November 10th with six.

Here's a little video Scott and I put together to show how our little ones spend their first six weeks of life. We keep them in a small enclosure with mom so they have plenty of access to food and water and no chance of getting lost in the woods. Ruby's are old enough to be set free now, so they'll soon be running with the big boys and girls, and Little Bit's already know how to escape and roam at will. Check 'em out. They are super curious, very gentle, and fun to raise. If you need a breeder or a feeder, let us know. We have a gracious plenty.
