This Little Piggy had roast beef

But we have a better solution for feeding your little piggy

Our Little Piggy Pet Pig Food is available for sale at The Market

You’ve spent a lot of money and time on your wonderful little piggy pet, and now you’ll want to ensure that you feed your piggy properly so that he or she grows to a healthy weight without being overweight or undernourished. Unlike food for dogs or cats, there are very few options for food for little pet pigs. We have the best option!

Our food has been specially designed by an animal nutritionist to meet all the nutritional needs of little pigs, and it is custom-made for us right here in Ontario.

The food is available for sale in 10 lb. bags at the Our Little Piggy on-line store, The Market.

The Development of Our Little Piggy Pet Pig Food

In 2009, when Jaime Neeb started her little pig herd, she had trouble finding a retail source of the right food for her piggies nearby, so she decided to create her own. She based our ration’s nutrient values in accordance with some commercial miniature pig feeds, and had our mixture analyzed to ensure proper nutrient values in the food. As well, Jaime consulted with an Animal Nutritionist, who helped tweak and perfect a great recipe. The resulting pet pig food is a mixture using high-quality, locally-produced, natural products.

The recipe has been passed along to us, and we continue to have the food made specially for us, in Ontario.

Healthy food contributes to healthy piggies!  All of our piggies are raised on our food.  Here is a healthy and curious Lola.Lola side
