Education

We suggest that you read all the information in this section so that you become well educated about piggies and piglet purchases!

All pets, including pigs, no matter what size, require daily exercise, attention, obedience training, socialization, and a proper diet. Owning a pig is a long commitment, as pigs often live 12 to 15 years, or even longer. Pigs are very intelligent, and as a rule, the owners must be smarter than their pig! If not, you will raise an unmanageable pig, and whether 40lb or 80lb, a badly mannered, misbehaving pet of any kind will make one’s life miserable.

Here’s sweet little Marvel, having a cuddle with friends!

Why we require a non-refundable down payment:

We are very serious about making sure that you and your piggy have a wonderful life together. We don’t want to sell a piglet to someone who hasn’t given it much thought and may abandon that piggy later. We will allow a breeding when we have at least three people on our waiting list. Once the sow has been bred, that litter of piggies will be born even if someone changes their mind. Those piglets will need to be vet checked, spayed or neutered. The $500 deposit helps to cover the cost of the veterinary services and raising of the piglets until they are at least 8 weeks of age.

The only time we would refund a deposit would be if there were circumstances under which we could not provide you with the birth of a piglet within eight months of your deposit. In that case, your money would be fully refunded.
