In the Summer of 2011, Wedge Oak Farm traveled to Iowa to buy several Mangalitsas. We returned to Tennessee with wooly pigs that would flourish in Tennessee to make the most deep and intensely flavored pork found in the United States. This hardy, robust and slow growing pig was close to extinction in it's homeland of Hungary. Today, through conservation efforts, the breed has been revived and is also residing in the US and UK.
