KUNEKUNE PIGS ARE RARE, SMALL, HERITAGE PIGS KNOWN TO BE MULTI-PURPOSE.  KUNES ARE COMMONLY RAISED FOR THEIR ABILITY TO GRAZE WITHOUT DAMAGE TO PASTURE AND TO GLEAN WITHOUT HARM TO ORCHARDS OR VINEYARDS. THEY DO NOT TEND TO ROOT, ROAM, OR CHALLENGE FENCES.  KUNES ARE COMPLETELY UNIQUE IN THEIR ABILITY TO "FATTEN" ON GRASS ALONE OR WITH VERY LITTLE NEEDED IN THE WAY OF SUPPLEMENTATION.  SOMETIMES CALLED "LITTLE PIONEER PIGS", KUNEKUNE PIGS MAKE GREAT MEAT PIGS FOR THE SMALL FARM, HOBBY FARMER, OR AS PART OF ANY SUSTAINABLE FARMING ENTERPRISE.  The breed is known to be incomparably placid.

IMPORTANT  *****  Kunekune Pigs are not "miniature" pigs.  The breed was developed by the Maori people of New Zealand and has remained unimproved maintaining its relatively small size.  All pigs are small without human intervention.  This type of human intervention always results in large, early maturing, fast growing pigs which is the opposite of the Kunekune Pig breed.


This is the official website for the KuneKune Pig (Kune Kune Pig) in America and for the American KuneKune Breeders' Association and Registry known as AKBA.  The Foundation Herd book for America was established by AKBA in 2006.


The American KuneKune Breeders' Association was founded in 2006 by Jim and Lori Enright of USA KuneKunes.  AKBA was formed to provide information and support to KuneKune fanciers and provide to breeders of  purebred KuneKune Pigs in America a means of breed program record keeping in the form of an official registry.

The main aim of the association is to ensure the conservation and preservation of the KuneKune by:

  • Encouraging the breeding, owning, and improvement of KuneKunes as a multipurpose breed.
  • Promoting communication and cooperation between breeders and owners of KuneKunes.
  • Providing information on the breeding, keeping, and marketing of KuneKunes.
  • Maintaining a registry of purebred KuneKunes.
  • Promoting KuneKunes through exhibition, publications, and research.
