You cant raise what you have never heard of. Meishan Pigs have now been featured in 6 different national Publications and One national Webinar.

Meishan Pig articles and webinars bring awareness to the Meishan pig. The battle to save any heritage and endangered breed starts first with awareness. We started researching the breed in early 2014.  I was struck with a total lack of accurate information available. However in the past year or so there has been a groundswell of interest in the Meishan Pig  Breed. We were humbled to be mentioned in and have some small part in the development of these articles and webinars. We are thrilled that the breed continues to attract the attention of different media platforms as we, our partners and our customer strive to save and preserve this ancient breed.

Farm Show Magazine Summer of 2018: 

We were a bit surprised when Farm Show Magazine contacted us to ask if we wanted extra copies of the issue with an article on our farm.The reason was we had not knowingly talked to anyone on the article. Based primarily on our rescue of the Meishan Pig Genetics. There are a  few minor inaccuracies in it but we have received tremendous feedback from this article.
