If you have any PM me with prices & location..
Try the American Minor Breeds Association. You should be able to Google them up.
Why are you looking for this breed?
Could be one of a couple reasons:
1. They are a good forager-type pig (Do well on pasture and waste feed) and the sows are good milkers and good mothers.
2. They are trendy, as in you aren't a real homesteader unless you have heritage breeds.
The first one is a good reason depending on your type of operation, but I wouldn't pay a huge premium for them
They are to keep some tamworths company in a heritage breed farming endeavour I am helping establish.
From the prices I see asked for the Gloucestershire Old Spots Pigs the Tamworths would have to keep themselves company!
