Boars

Breeding

All boars must be calm and easily managed.  They must peacefully co-exist with our other farm animals.  Aggression is not tolerated.

Flint and Steel 

Sam Adams

Born April 2017

Sam came to us from Flint and Steel Farm in New York and boy is he handsome.  We like his very nice length, ideal snout length, and excellent feet.  His excellent temperament makes him a delight to manage.  He was a real crowd-pleaser at the 2018 Mother Earth News Fair in Frederick, Maryland.  

 

Breeding Plans:  Sam will be bred with CMG Beatrix Potter in January 2021.

Leo%20October%202018_edited.jpg

CMG Leo Tolstoy

Born November 2017

Our homegrown boar, Leo, is the son of Sahib and Madeline.  He is an extremely good-natured, stout guy with a pleasant face, great length, and nice width.  All his offspring have his good temperament. 

 

Breeding Plans:  As of January 2021, Leo is in a breeding paddock with JWM Big Sky.

Charlie Feb 2021.jpg

CMG Charles Dickens

Born February 2019

Charlie is the result of an intentional line breeding of JWM Big Sky back to her father, Ingleside Clyde (our original boar).  From this pairing, we got just what we wanted.  A beautiful, hefty boar with a great top line, medium length snout, and an incredibly long torso.  He will be the foundation of our "Clyde Type" line.  

Breeding Plans:  Charlie will be bred to HPF Janice Joplin and CMG Erma Bombeck in January 2021.

HZV Sahib

Born September 2020

Sahib is a rare, blue-colored boar that we brought in from Ohio.  He is an easy-going, medium-sized guy with excellent body length and width.

Sahib has moved to a farm in Wisconsin.  We have retained one of his sons, CMG Leo Tolstoy.

Ingleside Clyde

Born January 2011

Clyde was the our first AGH boar and boy was he a good one.  He is big, wide, long, level, and the gentlest of souls.  Best of all, he passes these traits on to his offspring. 

 

Clyde currently lives on the McDaniel's farm in Texas.

Stanfield's

Fred Astaire

Born March 2013

Fred is a big, easy going guy.  His hefty hams, strong back, long torso, and well-balanced frame. His offspring grow faster and larger than average.  This is true even when bred to mid-sized sows. 

 

Fred's genes can be found in several of our sows and one of our young boars, so he has moved on to a new farm in Virginia.

JWM Borg

August 2017

Borg is a son of our former (and first) boar, Ingleside Clyde, and Wendy McDaniels' blue sow, "Bleu."  Borg is long, level, stands on perfect patterns, and has that bit of extra leg length we appreciate. 

 

He was sold to a farm in Virginia as we have retained a gilt from his breeding with CMG Lacey Dancer (a Clyde daughter) and a gilt from his sister JWM Big Sky.

BKF Cedric Diggory

 

Born May 2018

Cedric is the grandson of two of our favorite hogs - Ingleside Bonnie and Stanfield's Fred Astaire.  He has good size, a nice strong topline, a well-balanced frame, a leaner body type, brisk movements, and a beautiful face. He produces piglets with a strong topline and good feet.

He has moved on to a farm in Virginia.
