The following are areas that your Director can help you:

  • Membership questions

Directors do not take the place of a mentor or a vet and can not give this type advice for legal purposes.

After years of experience in the commercial swine world, and having several different breeds of pigs on her own farm, the first 3 KuneKune piglets arrived in 2017. It was clear from the very beginning that KuneKune pigs were a perfect fit and the rest is history! The herd has grown to be the main focus on the farm and Kate’s true passion. She loves working with this amazing breed of pig and mentoring and supporting the great people that come along with them!

Kate joined the AKKPS in 2019 when her first litters arrived and the service and support she received were second-to-none. Kate joined the AKKPS Board of Directors in 2020 in order to serve and give back to the greater AKKPS community.

Deb Allen is from Northern Indiana. She is a retired pharmacist, with a genetics background and an English minor. Deb and her daughter started raising kunekunes over 6 years ago on our family’s 80 acre farm, along with Appaloosa horses. She joined the AKKPS soon after. Their pigs have many uses including raising future breeding stock, meat pigs for our own table, and supplying kunekunes for small farms. They are very proud of their pure British KuneKunes, continuing the work of the UK pioneers.

Deb enjoys writing, especially about these remarkable animals, and is excited to share educational articles with you.

Mentoring is another great passion, as she likes meeting new people all across the US and Canada, and sharing information about KuneKunes.

She encourages any of you to volunteer your time to AKKPS!
