CharlotteCharlotte and Wilbur are Tamworth pigs who came to us as a pair. They are siblings who were hand-raised as piglets. It is hard for anyone to not fall in love with these two confident and fun-loving pigs. They can be found in the back of the barn with other pigs and also sometimes with the herd of goats, sheep, and donkeys.

CornelliusCornelius joined us in June of 2014. He came from a shelter surrounded by dogs after being surrendered by a neglectful owner. He always has an opinion to share and prefers to be the boss hog. He gets along fairly well with Charlotte, Wilbur, and Frankie.
FrankieFrankie was dumped with his girl Mya near a busy highway and taken in at a local horse farm. When a search for the owners turned up empty, they were passed on to us and we are so lucky to have them both. Frankie was neutered shortly after his arrival and currently shares space in the barn with most of the other pigs.
MyaShortly after she arrived here with her man Frankie, we realized she was a runner who was too small to be held in by farm fences and gates. It didn't take her long to adjust to life as a house pig, and grow and grow, only to discover her little hidden treasures to come.
OlafIn January of 2015, about 3 months after their arrival, Mya and Frankie blessed us with the sweet addition of their two sons, Olaf and Levi, who will spend their life here with both Mom and Dad nearby. Olaf is a calm, independent fellow who likes belly rubs.
LeviIn January of 2015, about 3 months after their arrival, Mya and Frankie blessed us with the sweet addition of their two sons, Olaf and Levi, who will spend their life here with both Mom and Dad nearby. Levi is a bit of a suck. Get scratching him and he'll snuggle on you and make sweet sounds.
DaisyOur original porcine princess. She has been with us for over 11 years, and most of those as an only pig. I think she is enjoying all of her new pig friends. She lives in a cozy little outside den with Chester and Theo.
HamletHe was found in a city, and as is often the case, where city by-laws don't allow for pigs, he was never claimed. He spent several months being looked after by a shelter before he joined us here on the farm. He enjoys his sleeping box and a space he shares with Mia (not Mya).
ChesterThis gentle boy was given up to a farm that didn't really want him when he grew too big for his family. He really is a sweet soul who loves a good belly rub. He's currently sharing a space with Daisy and Theo.
Harry, Keegan, and TylerThese three came as a group and enjoy cuddling together with a few short trips outside every once in a while. Tyler and Harry both love belly rubs and even a little lap cuddling.
Mia HammMia came to us from her home at Ralphy's Retreat to see if she and our Hamlet might become friends. Neither previously had much luck making friends with other pigs. They quickly hit it off and are now bunking together in their little nest. She is a tiny girl with lots of friendly confidence.
TheoTheo came to us from Ralphy's Retreat after a quick pass-through. He had previous Tamworth pig experience and seemed like he may be a good fit here given Charlie and Wilbur are Tamworths. He is so gentle and lovable. I'm am certain he will have plenty of friends in no time.
Thelma and LouiseThelma and Louise were a sudden August 2015 rescue when we got word that they were due to be sent off to slaughter the very next day. The are very shy sisters who enjoy the comfort of one another, have found their voices in the sanctuary crowd, and are learning a little more all the time to not just tolerate but to appreciate human contact.
JaquesThere was this one time, early after moving Jacques to his current house, Andrea and I were in socializing with him, one of the pigs in the other side of the house made a noise. It startled Jacques to the point where he jumped on my lap for safety. He needed his new daddy to protect him from the scary monster :)
He's soooo personable. He looks at you and smiles.
When he's out of the main pig paddock I can see he's torn between exploring and spending his time beside us.
