Have you tried the BPA or the piertain breed society? They will have a list of breeders who may be in your area :)

Here we are....
Hope this helps :)
the most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, loving concern.

Thank you that's really helpful I've found two people who are within 30 miles or so from me! Hopefully I'll get something sorted for spring

They are Alice's new venture, 2016 was her first show season with them.

If they're anything like their other pigs they will be hard to beat
