April has proven to be a very busy month at Hog Haven Farm! We’ve seen our highest volume of rescued pigs, including two Kunekune breeds. Additionally, one of our rescued pigs gave birth two six healthy piglets on Easter Sunday!
Last week, we introduced you to some of our permanent residents at the farm; this week, we have more piggies to tell you about! These pigs are our sanctuary pigs, living their lives here for various reasons.
We currently have 7 pig pens; the largest pen accommodates 21 pigs, most of whom are permanent residents or long-term boarding pigs.
Hog Haven Farm is home to more than 40 pigs at any given time so, as you can imagine, we have to make sure that we keep on top of our Farm Supplies to make sure that we have everything we need to look after them. We strive to place as many pigs as we can into happy, loving, permanent homes, but there are factors that make adoption unrealistic.
There are steps that people can take if they too want to rescue these cute creatures or even the plenty of others that need a home! While taking care of farm animals can be difficult, if the commitment is there, then it is possible. Ranches for sale can be found aplenty, and investing in one of them could be the first step to a wonderful farm life, living amongst animals and plants, while also having the satisfaction of providing food and shelter to those in need.
We’d like to introduce you to some of our permanent resident pigs, with stories behind the pigs and why they get to live at the sanctuary long-term! Continue reading
Miniature pigs–the exotic, amazingly adorable novelty pet–are often classified with such names as teacup, micro, nano, pixie, and micro-mini. What does this mean, though, and what exactly is a mini pig?
