In 2006 St. Louis chef and culinary activist Julie Ridlon hosted a pork blind-tasting
that included meat from six heritage hog breeds, including RED WATTLE.

Please note: FIVE PONDS FARM does not presently house RED WATTLE HOGS, but our friends Jesse and
Sally Adams at VIRINDA FARMS do. Jesse and Sally are our farm mentors and informal partners. They are
authorities on the RED WATTLE HOG, having owned some of the originals mentioned below. (These hog
pages are property of FIVE PONDS FARM but are maintained for the benefit of Jesse and Sally and others
interested in the breed. We at FIVE PONDS FARM hope to have some RED WATTLE HOGS again soon).
SOME HISTORY as we understand it:
the red, wattled hogs he found in the Texas woods with superb breeding stock from other swine
breeds. The hog H.C. designed was one with a particularly "beefy" flavor and a different quality
of fat. The hog had exceptional size, gentleness, litter size, and feed conversion rate.
We at FIVE PONDS FARM feel that the Red Wattle (notice the difference in spelling) of today is
not the same calibre of hog that H. C. Wenglar established. We are, however, grateful that the
current Red Wattle hog retains some of the wonderful characteristics of the Wenglar originals.
hogs with the original Red Waddle traits. We continue in this search while providing others
with the best breeding stock we can.
Please contact us if you have knowledge of the whereabouts of very large wattled hogs (the
original boars were around 1500 pounds).
Our hogs are considered purebred Red Wattle and normally come with registration papers.
Interested in our animals but can't figure out how to get them home?
