Cascade Meadows Farm in Oregon is proud to be  the
first West
ern US  farm to breed the rare American Guinea
Hog.  The American Guinea Hog is a unique North American
heritage breed.  They are noted for their small size,
intelligence, docile and friendly temperaments, and their
ability to produce outstanding meat and flavorful lard
on pasture and forage.  American Guinea Hogs enjoyed
popularity on small U.S. farms in the Nineteenth Century,
 nearly went extinct due to the move toward
industrial sized breeds and confinement pork production.

We raise the American Guinea Hog at Cascade Meadows
Farm because of their manageable size, gentle natures
and sustainable foraging abilities. These characteristics
make them ideally suited for a small family farm like ours.  
These hogs fill a functional niche on our farm, producing
outstanding natural pork on forage a
nd also farm and
scraps  that would otherwise go to waste. They
complement our other livestock and round out our
holistic multi-species pasture management practices.  

The American Guinea Hog is a rare
heritage breed that we
are p
roud to have played an instrumental role in saving  
from extinction
.  Cascade Meadows Farm continues to
ead the effort to  preserve this unique American hog for
use by future generations of small farmers.
