Main content of the show

Cathy R. Payne is the award-winning author of Saving the Guinea Hogs: The Recovery of an American Homestead Breed. After a 33-year teaching career, she decided at age 57 to leave suburbia and start a sustainable farm in rural Georgia. She specialized in nutrient-dense foods and heritage livestock breeds. She became well-known in the heritage breed community. When she started researching the Guinea Hog breed, she hit a brick wall regarding its history and set out to write a book about it herself. She now lives in Athens, Georgia, writes about heritage breeds, and promotes the breeds on The Livestock Conservancy’s Conservation Priority List.
