Welcome to The British Kunekune Pig Society

kunekune sow and piglets

The Kunekune pig, originally kept by Maoris in New Zealand, are friendly hairy pigs born in a variety of colours.

It is the smallest domesticated breed of pig in the world, a firm favourite among pet pig owners, due to its placid friendly nature and love of human company. Small scale pig breeders enjoy its ease of management and ability to thrive on grass.
