In 2018, we became one of the only registered American Berkshire Association breeders in New England with the purchase of a boar, Brewster and four sows, Pumpkin, Tulip, Peaches, and Violet.
The registered boar was born in March 2016 and the registered sows were born in the fall of 2016. The herd now includes a registered large black, Loretta, two years old and two non-registered sows, Laverne and Shirley, 16 months old. We follow as natural a process as possible and farrow all of our sows on pasture using English style farrowing huts in the summer months and a farrowing barn in the cold New England winter.
