The last litter born this Spring 2016 on February 27th, Erupt x Walker.  They are sooo pretty and colorful!!  This a strong litter.  You will likely see these at our sale on the 22nd and will work best for late summer fairs.  

Fame 81

We want to introduce to you our boar Fame 81.  He was born September 2014 made from Fame x Big Time 81-11.  Big Time 81-11 is one of our best sows in the barn making a lot of our champions.  We took him for a walk in the spring this year when Kevin was getting ready for the fall breeding.  We think you will be pleased with his progeny.  He is heavy boned, square, big rib, super correct on his feet and legs.  He has excellent strength to his pasterns.  His litters are uniquely colorful and full of power.  Check out a few more shots of this guy in the photos.

2015 Spring Litters

Posted by kremeryorkshires on March 22, 2015 at 3:55 PM Comments comments ()

Happy Spring!!  It's about time to start the show season.  We are so excited about this year's litters.  There is so much potential coming out of the farrowing house.  Every time we walk through there's an echo: oooh, look at this one!!  Kevin is getting the barn ready for viewing since the sales are coming quickly. There's a lot of power in these litters. Hopefully everyone is recovering from the cold and ready to turn up the heat. Here's one of our litters when they were born.  See you soon!

2014 (Winter-Spring) Farrowing Season

Posted by kremeryorkshires on March 2, 2014 at 5:10 PM Comments comments ()

What a brutal winter this has been!  Snow storms and sub-zero temps made us a little nervous this winter.  The pigs have been been doing fabulous!  They have made a lot of healthy and strong piglets in lots of color patterns and freckly blues.  As of this post, we will have three more sows to go having a little later season than we usually do. 

Now that we are successfully working our way through this rough, tough weather we are also concerned about the recent outbreaks of PED in Ohio.  We're going to request that our customers take heed of this dangerous virus that wipes out baby pigs.  We'll be taking a few more precautions as well to prevent contracting this deadly thing.  The North Coast Sale will continue at the Sandusky County Fairgrounds on April 11th. We're staying confident that we will make it through this spring without any incidents.

That said, we're really excited to show you what's in the barn as soon as we can!!

Way to go!

What's in the Barn - Summer 2013

We want to show off the crossbred boar coming out of the spring litters this year.  He is a Card Shark x Hot Shot x Moonshine we would like to call Wild Card.  He is massive, wide, and heavy-boned.  Take a look at the long strides he takes with ease and flexibility.  This pig is full of confidence and will make some great show pigs in the future.  He will be exhibited at the Ohio State Fair, July 28 - 29th.  For more information about this boar, please call Kevin at 419-366-4611.

Erie County Hog Barn Construction Project

Posted by kremeryorkshires on April 13, 2013 at 2:35 PM Comments comments ()

Kevin has been busy for the last several months working with the Erie County Sr. Fair Board and several partners to renovate the Jr. Fair Hog Barn.  The open-sided, wood constructed barn has a dirt floor and wooden pens for hogs.  It has also housed Llama and Alpaca exhibits.  More than 100 hogs are exhibited there in early August.  The Margaretta FFA Chapter had a very successful crop recently that yielded some extra funds to put towards getting the project off the ground.  Several community members and businesses have stepped forward to provide assistance with building materials including concrete floors.  Metal pens are being constructed to replace the old wooden gates. 

The building's foundation is being checked and repaired as needed.  Concrete is expected to be poured in June and cured in time for the metal pens to be delivered and installed in July.  The Erie County Fair in Sandusky, Ohio will be August 6-11, 2013.  If you are interested in being a sponsor, donations are being requested in the amount of $150.00 each (approximate cost of each pen).  Sponsors will be recognized on a plaque that will hang in the barn.  Checks for donations should be made out to Margaretta Young Farmers and mailed to Margaretta Young Farmers, c/o Kevin Kremer, 5137 US Route 6, Vickery, OH 43464.  We'll try to post some pictures of the progress this summer.

2013 Spring Litters Arriving!

Kevin and Frances were out in the farrowing house this morning doing a little housekeeping. We want to show off some of the amazing little pigs that have arrived since the first weekend in February. So far, there are 2 pure York litters and 3 crossbred litters. The York females are absolutely stunning, especially the Bullet Proof/Tug Boat x Ultra litter that was just born yesterday. You can't believe how consistent and full-bodied these brand new babies are. There are 4 males and 4 females. As for the crosses, they are good-sized, big boned, colorful (lots of blues and black belts), and show excellent structure.  Just take a look for yourself:
