New Pig Farm for North Korea

19 January 2009

SOUTH KOREA - Jeju Island is supporting a new farm for black pigs in North Korea.

South Korea's Jeju Island will send equipment to build a pig farm in Pyongyang to raise the island's local specialty, black pigs, officials told Yonhap.

Black pigs, or 'heuk-doe-ji' in Korean, are native to the semi-tropical island. They are covered in black hair, and the meat is popular for being chewy and rich in nutrients.
