Allen's Acres Farm is in North Central Indiana, halfway between Fort Wayne and South Bend. We have been raising Appaloosa horses in this location since 1988. The 80 acre farm has been in the family since homesteading days and is now home to the Allen Family, the KuneKune pigs, Miniature cattle, Appaloosa horses, Myotonic goats, and Dominick the dromedary camel. We also have two Livestock Guardian Dogs, Badger, a Great Pyranees, and Yanna, a Karakachan.
Over the years, we have had a number of different breeds of animals. Quinn and Jarrad showed rabbits all over the Midwest very successfully and had over 300 at one time. They showed horses, rabbits, and goats in 4H, and they continue to support the county 4H program as adult volunteers.
Quinn and Jarrad Allen, a brother-sister team, now raise several breeds of animals. While they are both are involved with the horses, Jarrad raises miniature cattle, and Quinn has Kunekune pigs, and fainting goats.
Jarrad wanted cattle that were easy to handle and versatile. Whether someone wants a pet, or to put beef in the freezer---mini cattle are becoming more popular for people who have a few acres. Quinn had researched pig breeds that grazed instead of rooting and found the Kunekune pig. She fell in love with them! They are intelligent, friendly, and easy to keep. Kunes love to flop at your feet to have their bellies rubbed! She has been blessed to have Caroline Malott from Red Roof KuneKunes, Kathy Petersen from Virginia KuneKunes and Allen Raber be resources for information and superb breeding stock.
All of the pigs are DNA tested and registered with the AKKPS. Bloodlines include Trish, Sally, Wilson's Gina, Kereopa, Jenny, Rona, Andrew, Mahia Love, BH Tutaki, and Whakenui.
Quinn also has a few myotonic goats and raises several kids each year.
On our farm, our livestock is cared for with respect, the farm and land is appreciated, the products and animals we offer are of highest quality, and our customers are important to us.
