For over 30 years, we have been raising champion show pigs. In 1982, we first loaded our hog trailers for the Indiana State Fair. Two of the hogs from our barns were in the Grand Championship drive - the York champion that was named Reserve Grand Champion and the Crossbred Champion - it was then that we knew we were on to something very special.

    Since then, we have operated with the same commitment to excellence. We breed for sound, lean, and durable pigs and we've been fortunate enough to experience success at the local, state and national level for 30 years. To see firsthand, the success of our pedigrees, check out the "Hall of Champions"

   We are particularly excited about the club pigs we'll be offering up at the annual Bowling Club Pig Sale. This is one of the most complete set of club pigs we've had in years, and we're excited about the potential they bring for the upcoming show season.

    Please come out and see for yourself! We welcome you to come out to our farm and sort through them. Give us a call, and we'd be glad to take you through this outstanding set of pigs and answer any questions you may have.

    When you buy a pig from us, we share in your success and we're here to support you along the way. Let us know if there's anything we can do to help you get into the winner's circle.

   We noticed Déjà vu as a pig on the sow. As he grew he continued to catch our eye as well as the attention of farm visitors. When we unloaded Déjà vu in Springfield he immediately became the talk of the barn. On show-day he was named Champion Boar in what was said to be the strongest most competitive Poland boar show people had seen. All that being said, the true measure of the quality of a boar is the offspring. Below is a list of results attained by numerous breeders and exhibitors with Déjà vu offspring.
