Red Roof KuneKune's Farm Set Up
Red Roof KuneKunes raises KuneKunes on 6 acres of land in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Lynchburg, Virginia.
Our set up is unique!
The sow field is in the center and all of the individual boar paddocks are off the sow field allowing for easy movement of sows into the individual boar fields.
We have 7 Boar Fields, a Main Sow Field, 6 Farrowing Quarters (stall & outside area), 3 Weanling Areas and a Quarantine Area.
We select breed - meaning we pair a specific boar and sow together for breeding. Red Roof KuneKunes does not field breed. It is important to us that we know the planned sire and dam of each litter.
All of our fields contain plenty of shade, a large mud wallow and a draft free shelter stuffed with hay.
We feed a 16% pellet twice a day along with fresh water twice a day.
To Keep an eye on sows and piglets, we have WiFi cameras in all of our farrowing quarters.
Red Roof KuneKunes is set up to farrow piglets year round.Each farrowing stall has multiple windows and fans for ample airflow in the warmer months. For the colder months we have heated farrowing stalls, carbon fiber heaters and safety heat lamps.
Why the Name Red Roof KuneKunes
Many people ask me about the name "Red Roof KuneKunes". You will be shocked (or maybe not after being on our website) but red is not my color of choice!Mike and I purchased our home in 2005. We were so excited to have a historical home that was built in 1798 and had so much history but we quickly learned (and I mean the week we moved in) that with the history came a lot of work and many, many necessary updates! Lol, we found ourselves happily house poor! Internet was the biggest issue - DIAL UP! When installing the internet, Mike had to come up with a name for our router. Well you guessed it - our home has a bright Red Roof which can not be missed! Ever since then any and everything home or farm related has been Red Roof _________!
