Good Evening RWHA Members,
The Board of Directors would like to inform all RWHA Members that moving forward Epic Nature Farm, LLC, owned and operated by Ryan Kolodziej and DeAnn Kaszubski-Kolodziej, will no longer be affiliated with the Red Wattle Hog Association. This decision was finalized after a complaint hearing was held on September 7, 2022, where the RWHA Board of Directors and Epic Nature Farm, LLC, were in attendance.
After the complaint hearing, the Board of Directors held a closed meeting on September 9, 2022, to evaluate and vote on the matters of which were discussed during the complaint hearing. It was found by the BOD that two of the three complaints submitted against the accused parties were valid and no evidence was presented by the accused parties to disprove the allegations.
Effective immediately, no stock can be registered by either Ryan Kolodziej or DeAnn Kasubski-Kolodziej of Epic Nature Farm, LLC, through the RWHA. All stock registered prior to this notice, will be grandfathered, but no future stock or offspring stock of any animals registered to Epic Nature Farm, LLC, owned by Ryan Kolodziej and DeAnn Kasubski- Kolodziej will be allowed to be registered moving forward as (a) non-member(s) since membership has received a lifetime banning.
As the RWHA BOD, we would like to state that we do not condone nor endorse any of the behaviors presented by Ryan Kolodziej and supported by DeAnn Kaszubski-Kolodziej of Epic Nature. Therefore, without any expression of remorse shown by them, we feel as though it is for the betterment of the breed and this association that we moved forward abiding by the RWHA Bylaws to ensure a member friendly and respected community for all involved.
This association was created and still exists upon integrity and ethic for the Red Wattle breed and for the dedicated members that comprise the RWHA.
If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact a member of the Board of Directors.
The RWHA Board of Directors
