If you want somebody to try it you tell them it tastes like chicken.

So . . . it tastes like chicken . . . or kunekune.

Haha naw. I've never raised a pig for slaughter so I've only ever had commercial pork. I was wondering what the difference between that and something like this would taste.

I had to look this up. I stole this quote:

"Kunekunes have an excellent ratio of meat to fat. The nicest pork is that killed before a year old. Kunekunes are considered by many to be nicer eating than the faster grown commercial pig."

I will say pork is pork. These piggies just have smaller hams, less chops and etc. Commercial hogs are raised for longer and less fat. Follow the money, chops, bacon and etc.

The kune kune is a lard pig, we raised two last year for a year then butchered. They definitely don't get as large as a larger breed like Herford, but the meat was delicious. The fat rendered perfectly "like butter"!!
