Large Black Pig- according to Hobby Farm magazine the perfect pig. Old English breed, well marbled, but not with a lot of waste needing trimmed. Can be pasture raised, a true grazing pig, can be finished on grain if desired.  Will not destroy pasture, as rooting is limited to mud hole and around feeder.  Will top out at 700lbs, but when raised on lush pasture, will finish out at 250.

The Large Black pig is native to Cornwall, Devon, and Somerset in southwestern England. Originally known as the Lop Eared Black, the breed was selected for large size and efficiency of production on pasture and other forages. The Large Black gained popularity rapidly during the last half of the 1800s, and it was one of the most numerous of the English pig breeds in 1900. A breed association was formed in 1898.

The Large Black The breed originates from the Old English Hog established in the 16th and 17th centuries. Described by Parkinson in 1810: "They are distinguished by their gigantic size, they are the largest of the kind I have ever seen, and as perfect a make as possible in pigs; their heads are large, with very long ears hanging down on each side of the face,
