LUCY BOAR

Meet LUCY
our unique pig

Behold LUCY, a unique pig, named after the archetypal mother of humankind. LUCY is a mythical beast in the making who will blend her wild genes with those of many other pig breeds. Sired by an American industrial pig and a wild boar as a Hungarian mother, LUCY stands at the intersection of biology, anthropology, economics, art, philosophy and sociology. LUCY tells a vital story about democratic and sustainable food, about food economy and respect for life.

who's who?

LUCY was developed by Koen Vanmechelen and Heyde Hoeve. The Foodmonkeys created a haute dog based on the concept. The collaboration is part of the project FoodLabPeel in which ZLTO bkkc and Peel Network collaborate to develop new perspectives on intensive farming in The Peel, Eindhoven (NL).
