American
Guinea
Hogs
Cascade Meadows Farm in Oregon is proud to be one of
the first West Coast farms 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, but have declined in number due to the move
toward industrial sized breeds and confinement pork
production.

We chose to 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 and feed 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 an extremely rare breed that
we are excited to have on our farm.  Cascade Meadows
Farm is committed to preserving this unique American hog
for use by future generations of small farmers.
