Heritage Swine

Addie is the Matriarch of our Tamworth herd. She is a registered Tamworth purchased from Mr. Phil Grover of Maple Grove Farms. Addie began her life at our farm as a 4-H pig. This is an essential bonding time where the relationship between stock-person and animal begins. Hogs will perform better in an environment where this relationship is formed in a positive atmosphere.

February 4, 2012 was a historic day at Cain Heritage Farms. Our first litter of pigs was born. You can see in the following photos that we are a family farm and all are involved from farrowing date until market date. These are also a good illustration of the positive atmosphere we create for our livestock.



At two weeks of age Addie was already getting the pigs on pasture. Their "Irish Grazer" heritage shining through. Pigs are natural foragers and will do well on pasture when supplemented with free choice grain and water.




Breeding Stock:
2020 Litters: 
Call for pricing and availability.
Gilts: 
**Pictures coming soon of these gilts.

Tamworths:  Nice group of traditional looking Tamworth Gilts yet with the broad shoulders of their sire.  These gilts will be breeding age late August or September of 2020.  They are from a litter of 10.  Their dam consistently has litters of this size or greater.  She is a very low maintenance sow that most typically lays down and farrows with little assistance from us. 

Poland China:  These gilts are very wide and deep bodied.  They already have that brood sow look.  They will be breeding age late August early September of 2020.  Their dam typical has litters of 10 pigs.  She is also very low maintenance with minimal assistance during farrowing.

Boars:
We have litters due this summer that can be left as boars.  Call for details.
