Stanfield's Fred Astaire
(Born March 3, 2015)
Fred is a big, easy going guy. His hefty hams, strong back, long torso, and well-balanced frame are just what we look for in an American Guinea Hog. Fred's offspring grow faster and larger than average. This is true even when bred to our mid-sized sows. At three years old, we believe he is fully grown and weighs at least 350 pounds - or more.
Breeding Plans: Fred's genes can be found in several of our sows and one of our young boars, so we have to decided to offer him for sale - providing we can find just the right farm. He will be used for breeding in December of 2020 and will then be ready to go to a new farm in January of 2020. Fred adds size a faster growth to all of his offspring. As long as he is here, we will continue to use him for breeding. (NOTE: SALE PENDING)
Flint and Steel Sam Adams
(Born April 12, 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. He has sired two litter for us and we have retained one of his daughters, CMG Inga Moore.
Breeding Plans: Sam is currently in the breeding pen with CMG Amelia Earhart and JWM Big Sky. We are looking forward to April litters.
CMG Leo Tolstoy
(Born November 26, 2017)
Our homegrown boar, Leo, is the son of Sahib and Madeline. He is a good-natured, stout guy with a pleasant face, great length, and nice width. We have retained one of his daughters.
Leo is on loan to a Mennonite farm in Southern Maryland to help with some land clearing. He will still be available to us for breeding, but will live with them for the time being.
BKF Cedric Diggory
(Born May 26, 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, brisk movements, and a beautiful face.
He was bred to both Old Beach Setty Madeline and ROF Dusty in December of 2018 and produced very nice piglets with his longer legs and torso. We retained a gilt from each of those litters.
Breeding Plans: He will bred to CMG Irma Bombeck in January of 2020. At least one of those piglets will be retained. Cedric will be for sale in February 2020.
CMG Charles Dickens
(Born May 3, 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 fabulous hams. He will be the foundation of our "Clyde Type" line. He has quite a bit of maturing to do, but be like what we see so far.
Breeding Plans: Charlie will be bred to CMG Lacey Dancer and HPF Janice Joplin in January 2020. And to CMG Beatrix Potter in February 2020.
(Born January 17, 2011)
Clyde was the our first AGH boar and boy was he a good one. We sold him in order to bring in a different bloodline. Had we known that we would purchase our own farm and become able to keep more than one line going, we never would have parted with him.
He is big, wide, long, level, and the gentlest of souls. Best of all, he passes these traits on to his offspring. He currently lives on the McDaniel's farm in Texas. We were lucky to get a Clyde son from the McDaniel's in November 2018, JWM Borg. Borg was bred to Dancer, our only retained Clyde daughter, and we retained a gilt from that litter, CMG Beatrice Potter.
(Born September 20, 2010)
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. He throws excellent piglets and is still going strong at age nine!
NOTE: In September of 2017 Sahib was sold to Applegarth Farms in Wisconsin. Before his move, he was bred to both Erma and Madeline. We retained one of his sons, CMG Leo Tolstoy and one of his daughters, CMG Amelia Earhart.
(Born August 24, 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 pasterns, and has that bit of extra leg length we appreciate. He was sold so that we would have space to retain a gilt from his breeding with CMG Lacey Dancer (a Clyde daughter and our only blue sow).
