I've always understood that in the end, if Wooly Pigs was successful, lots of people would want to own Mangalitsa pigs, and lots of people would have Mangalitsa pigs.
We brought the pigs to this hemisphere, built a production network, positioned Mangalitsa as America's super-premium pig breed, built a network of people across the USA fattening the pigs, brought Europeans to America to train our processor how to cut and process the pigs, got European experts to release a free (and the best book so far) on cutting pigs and so on.
The next step is to take it national (and counting Canada, international), which means selling breeding stock. This is going to be done in a way that maximizes the impact, just like we've done everything else. People who want to eat, cook, prepare or process Mangalitsa pork will be able to get it, because the pigs will be raised all over the USA* and perhaps Canada.
It has never been possible for Americans to easily acquire some of the best-tasting pigs in the world. Now it will be.
If you'd like to buy Mangalitsa breeding stock, please contact me - firstname.lastname@example.org.
* We've already got people raising them in Texas and Florida. They do just fine in the hot climate.
