from VIRINDA FARMS
We aim for farrowing in Spring and Fall but
may have piglets available most any time of year.
GETTING THE RED WATTLE Hogs FROM US TO YOU:
We have recently lost some transport options formerly available,
so for now breeding stock leaving our farms must be picked up at them.
Meat hogs may be delivered to your choice of butchers near us
for a small fee. We may also be able to ship meat to you.

VIRINDA FARMS owners Jesse and Sally Adams started their Red Waddle breeding
with some of H.C. Wenglar's originals. They sold their stock when Jesse was dying
of cancer. By the time he recovered somewhat and they went looking for
replacement hogs, he and Sally were unable to locate Red Waddles of the stature
they had owned before. They did the best they could to find the best hogs available
and continue doing so today. They have graciously shared their expertise
(and hogs) with us at FIVE PONDS FARM.
RED WATTLE HOG BREEDING STOCK:
Most RED WATTLE HOGS are inbred to some degree, as they are critically
endangered and there are only three main bloodlines in the registry.
We have become increasingly particular when it comes to the RED WATTLE HOG
breeding stock we sell. Weaned piglets (8-10 weeks old) are priced at
$275 each. Prices vary on older hogs.
These hogs are sold with registration paperwork and we guarantee them to
be register-able through The American Livestock Breeds Conservancy.
RED WATTLE BUTCHER HOGS:
Barrows (castrated males) normally sell for $85-100 each (depending on number
purchased) until they are 80 pounds apiece; price for hogs weighing over 80 pounds
is determined at time of sale.
Gilts (young females) not meeting our high standard of breeding quality
sell at 8 weeks of age for $150 apiece and do not include registration papers.
