Jeffrey Korsmit, St Willebrord
Jeff Korsmit is a young passionate farmer. On his small farm in the south of the Netherlands he raises several heritage breeds of livestock, one of them is the Mangalitza pig.
Working on the land in a sustainable manner and producing good quality products from animals that were raised in a humane way is very important for him.
He raises his animals in a way that is as natural as possible. And he likes to quote Joel Salatin from Polyface Farms; “I respect the pigness of the pig”.
He has been breeding Red and Swallow Belly Mangalitsas since 2014. Some of his Mangalitsa were exported by Barbara Meyer zu Altenschildesche to the USA and Japan. These pigs were from the Austrian & Hungarian lines ha has at his farm.
