American Guinea Hogs on pasture

The Small Home, Big Decisions series follows Jennifer and her husband, Tyler, as they build a self-reliant homestead on a piece of country property in northeastern Kansas. The series will delve into questions that arise during their building process and the decisions they make along the way. The posts are a work in progress, written as their home-building adventure unfolds.



Our new daily routine includes twice-a-day feedings of our four American Guinea Hogs. Even when we don’t have food to give them, they still come up and happily accept scratches behind the ears, which is a friendly bonus of raising this docile breed. The photo above shows the A-frame we built for the hogs in the background, with our four barrows happily munching down some pasture grass in the foreground.
