Where all life matters


Who  are  we

Royal Mangalitsa is an initiative inspired by two passionate Mangalitsa breeders: 

Barbara Meyer zu Altenschildesche from the Netherlands(borne in Germany) and Wilhelm W. Kohl (borne in Austria) from the USA.

We started to work together in 2014. They got married in February 2020 and live partly in the US and Europe.


Wilhelm imported in 2010 the first Blonde Mangalitsa from Austria. In 2014 Red & Blonde Mangalitsas of Hungarian genetics were exported by Barbara to the US/Wilhelm and in 2016 additional Red and Swallow Belly breeding stock was exported again by her from the Netherlands to several US breeders.


More about these exports you can read here: History of the Mangalitsa pig in the US

Promoting the Mangalitsa pig and educate everyone interested in learning more about this beautiful heritage lard breed, created originally in 1833 in in the old Austro-Hungarian empire, is our main passion. 

Our goal is based on working with farmers, butchers and chefs interested in raising pigs in an ethical way, that want to work with high quality pork

We advise & educate about the Mangalitsa, and arrange for sale of breeding stock. All our service is free of charge!


On this website you will find lots of helpful information for breeders, butchers and chefs. 

We hope you will enjoy our website!
