Sorry, check back later. No piglets currently available.
So, you're interested in welcoming a piglet into your life- CONGRATS!! What an exciting choice to make and WE are excited that you're considering a piglet from us! Here is the process:
First, we will ask you to fill out our Piglet Purchase Questionnaire. The reason we require a questionnaire is because so many piglets in the US go to homes that were unprepared and end up being rehomed or placed in shelters. It's our job, as a responsible breeder, to ensure that our piglets are placed in suitable homes. The questionnaire allows us to help place you with the perfect piggy!!
Second, once your questionnaire has been received and accepted, we will contact you and get you placed on the waiting list. (Or let you pick a piglet out, if any are available)
Third, a 50% deposit is required to hold your piglet (once it's a week old) until they're ready to go to their new homes. Please see our sales policy for more information regarding the deposit.
Lastly, your little piglet is ready to come home with you!! We will have you fill out the purchase contract and your little one can go home with you!
According to VCAHOSPITALS.com: "Most veterinarians agree that at a minimum, pet piglets should be vaccinated against the bacteria that cause the infections erysipelas, leptospirosis, and tetanus. .... Vaccinations are usually started at 8-12 weeks of age boostered a month later, and then annually. Your veterinarian will determine, based on your pig's potential exposure to pathogens, breeding status, and location of where you live, what vaccines are advisable."
We have greatly reduced our mini pig breeding program down to one sow and one boar. Please note that it may take a year to fulfill what you're wanting/looking for in a mini pig.
Our pricing is based on sex and coloration.
Barrow $120 ($5 castration fee)
Barrow: $105 ($5 castration fee)
Microchipping available for $20
Mini pigs can get up to 300 pounds. There are several different breeds of mini pigs. Check out this website for more detailed information on the different breeds and their sizes. https://americanminipigassociation.com/mini-pig-breeds/
Our mini pigs are about the size of a medium dog when full grown. Pigs are much more dense than a dog however, and weigh more than a medium sized dog. Ours are around 60-100 pounds. This can vary based on their diet (if they are over fed and become overweight)
We do not allow people to make selections and send deposits until the piglets reach 1 week old. once they reach 1 week old- we will start at the top of the list and work our way down. We require 50% as a deposit and only hold them for 24 hours without a deposit. If we have several people wanting to make a selection- I will ask people to make their selection more quickly.
Your piglet will not be ready to go until it is 6-8 weeks old. Once you've been told that your piglet is ready to go, I will only hold it for 7 days. After 7 days, we charge $2/day (per animal). If a week has gone by and you've made no attempt to pick up your piglet (and no arrangements for another pickup time) I will sell your piglet to the next person in line and you will lose your deposit.
Our pigs live outdoors however, most of our buyers choose to have their pig(s) live inside as a house pet.
We believe in letting our girls have a break between litters. Since we are down to one sow, Rosie, we only have one litter a year.
