I am getting ready to get some pigs in july and i defenetly want an heritage breed.

So far in canada ive found a few breed around me such as

Large black (i find them a bit large for the space we have)
Tamworth hampshire and berkshire (all roughly 40 mins away)
Gloucestershire Old spots (they are located 6 hours drive away id rather avoid that)


But if i want the american guinea hog i cant find it in any breeder registery in canada and i found a source saying they were praised for their meat curing

If i cant find them i am mostly gonna lean towars tamworth or large black

Anybody knows where i could find them near quebec or ontario
Ive found some in NH but if i could avoid importing livestock in canada it would save me a lot of stress

Thank you in advance

Have you tried Craigslist? There are many private breeders of unregistered homestead stock available on there in my experience.

It's also not uncommon to find them crossed to Kunekune as well. It's a faster growing pig than pure Kunekune, but tends towards a somewhat shorter snout and slightly less prodigious (but still totally capable!) rooting. I find about 100 square feet per pig per day tends to leave the land disturbed but not destroyed.
 
I agree. Here's the link: https://richsoil.com/wood-heat.jsp
