Harrell Family Farm has done a dramatic sow herd reduction.  This was not an easy decision but because of Ryan’s busy work schedule and the parents nearing retirement, it was a family decision.

We have reduced down to our very best sows!!

Our 2020 litters will be sold off the farm and coming from our very best 4 sows.  We will have two crossbred, a Spot and a Chester litter.  All pigs will be sold off the farm.

4th Overall Gilt at the 2019 Madison County Indiana Fair.  The dam also produced the 4th Overall Barrow at the 2019 Allen County Indiana Fair.

Our Spot Sow (Pickles) is a full sib to the 2019 Reserve Champion Spot Gilt at the Team Purebred National Jr. Show. 

Our Chester Sow (Luna) is a littermate to the popular winning Chester gilt in Iowa (pictured above).  The littermate was Champion Chester 5 times, Reserve Champion Chester 6 times, and 4th Overall at the Agri-Power FFA Show #2.

Our Chester Sow (Luna) was the Champion Chester Gilt at the 2019 Allen County Fair. Her other littermate sister was the Champion Chester Gilt at the 2019 Madison County Indiana Open Show.
