Royal Mangalitsa

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

Barbara Meyer zu Altenschildesche and Wilhelm W. Kohl. 

Their goal is to promote 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.

Shandstone Farm is home to Smoky Mountain Mangalitsa.

Catherine & Rick enjoyed various careers before devoting themselves to farming and the Mangalitsa pig.  Most notably, they met in their 30’s at captain’s school in FL and excelled as a team in the private yachting industry.  They both hold USCG Master Upon Oceans 1600 Ton captain’s licenses and their careers caring for the wealthy took them to numerous ports of call throughout the US, the Bahamas and BVI’s.  

A new dream took hold in 2015;  one that would lead to independence and freedom.  One that has led to even more joy than sailing the sea!  They love the agrarian lifestyle, the lovely people and chefs they meet and the community in which they’ve gratefully become a part..

The meat pigs are raised on pasture and woodlands, supplemented with organic feed and nuts. Seasonally, the pigs feast on acorns, a finishing method used to grow the finest pork in the world.

Winfield Farm, Buellton CA

Bruce and Diane Steele are the owners of Winfield Farm. Bruce does the farming, Diane does the paperwork. They have been in business since 2003, sharing the bounty of their garden – and now heritage Mangalitsa wooly pigs.

Their orchard produces Blenheim apricots, peaches and pears.  A few years ago they invested in a few rare Mangalitsa wooly pigs, renownd for charcuterie, to consume the inevitable superabundance that a garden produces.  Long story short, nature took its course… and with more than 100 pigs on the ground now, Mangalitsas have become their mainstay.
