Tanja and Christian Welz, originally from Bremen, Germany, moved to Canada to start their own farm, raise their own animals, live a life very different from the one in the crowded city of Bremen. They jumped on the chance to purchase a historic farm house, built in 1828 by a Scott named John Campell, one of the original pioneer settlers.
The Mangalitsas are busy clearing the woodlands, and Tanja in the meantime is spending more of her time promoting the pigs. She is also involved as one of the directors of the Mangalitsa Breeders Association of Canada, and actively engaged to make the greatest possible genetic diversity of blood lines available in Canada.
