About MKONO Farm
A family owned farm specializing in the rare, slow-growing, and docile heritage breed, the KuneKune pig. Small batch but big in flavor, this perfectly marbled deep red pork won’t disappoint. We are fully committed to the ethical and humane treatment of our animals and environment. Taking our “farm to table” stewardship seriously, our animals are free to roam, socialize, and graze at their pleasure making them happier and thus creating a perfectly delicious harvest. Our flavorful products are sustainably produced, without added hormones and free from antibiotics, GMOs, corn, soy, by-products, etc. We believe Kunekune should eat and grow as nature intended and that the harvest is well worth the wait! We offer USDA processed, vacuum sealed, quick-frozen individual cuts (by the pound), or as a custom order by whole, half side, or custom cuts. For custom orders we will arrange transportation of animals to the processing facility and return. Our processed pork products include nitrate/MSG free bacon, sausage, ham and other specialty charcuterie. Delivery is available free of charge within 30 minutes of our farm. Want to see where your pork comes from? Schedule a visit. We would be glad to have you!

Farm Production System
Our Kunekune pigs are naturally raised, grass-fed and grass-finished. Raised on pasture from birth, we supplement with non-GMO sprouted barley fodder and hay only when grass is not adequate. We carefully plan our pasture forages year round for our pigs to naturally graze in a rotational permaculture system. We finish pigs with seasonal fruits and vegetables from our local farmers such as watermelons, peaches, apples, squash, and pumpkins as resources allow us to.
Our pigs are raised without growth hormones or implants. No antibiotics are ever used, unless medically necessary and if that case ever exits, that pig will not be harvested for the public.
