Kunekune (pronounced cooney cooney) are a medium-sized breed of grazing pig. They are able to thrive in a pasture-based setting with minimal grain inputs. At one point, they were almost extinct, but due to efforts by some very dedicated breeders, the breed is making a comeback, much to the delight of small family farmers, and their customers! The meat is luxurious, deep red and marbled like a fine steak. It is fattier than traditional breeds, but that is considered an asset given the impact on flavour, and the soft, delicious lard they have that is excellent for baking, the cuts are also slightly smaller than regular pork
If you are looking for lean pork, this is not it for you, if you are looking for some healthy fats and lots of flavour then please order! 🙂
