​Our newest litter...
Gove’s Signature Berkshires was created by Dr. Bob Helmenstein in 1923, a farmer and advocate for the proper and natural care for his most beloved creature, the Berkshire pig. In the early 1900s Dr. Helmenstein immigrated from Dusseldorf, Germany, with the goal to establish a quality Birkshire line. His passion for these beautiful creatures was passed down to his son, Dr. Helmenstein Jr. and now to his myself, Dr. Gove. Thank you for visiting my website and blog. I look forward to sharing these incredible creatures with you.
I would love to hear from you. Please let me know your experiences with this breed and your advice or input on issues that you would like discussed.

Many thanks,
​Dr. Katie Gove
Since 1923
