    • Girl pets must be spayed at the owner's expense between 3 - 6 months old depending on your veterinarian's recommendation. Pig spays can cost anywhere from $200 - $1,000+. If you would like to reserve a female when the time comes, we require an estimate from your veterinarian for a 40 lb pig spay. Please send that to use ahead of time so we have it on file.

  • If I do not hear from you, you are removed from the list, and I move to the next person.

3. Reserve your piglet.

  • Once you select a piglet, there is a $100 non-refundable deposit.

  • The $100 deposit is applied to the cost of your piglet.

  • I will email you a contract. You will sign and email the contract back to me.

  • Then you will venmo or Paypal your $100 deposit.

  • I send off your piglet's DNA sample, vaccinate, deworm, socialize, and get your piglet ready for pickup at 8 weeks old.

  • Following our Instagram or Facebook is the best way to stay updated on your piglet You can also see your piglet on the Live Stream.

  • Start thinking of what you want to name your piglet; if they are registered, I'll need your new piglet's name to register them.

  • Get your piglet's new home ready and purchase needed supplies. Educate yourself on pig care and behavior.

  • If you need transportation or delivery, we can help arrange that. The cost would be the buyer's responsibility. We do local delivery up to 50 miles free of charge.

4. Pick up your piglet.

  • Piglets are weaned at eight weeks after they are fully vaccinated and dewormed.

  • The rest of the cost of your piglet is due on the weaning day or pick-up day $400 for pets, $600 for registered (this is minus the $100 deposit)

  • Bring a medium to a large dog kennel to transport your piglet home. It is safest to transport them inside the car and this will be required depending on weather. This is for the safety of you and your pig. They do get car sick and can throw up and will poop on the ride. Bring a small pet water bowl and a gallon jug of water.

  • We block off one-hour pickup slots for each family. You will meet your pig's, parents, see our setup, and go over our care routine. Bring any questions you may have to your pickup. Sometimes, it is easier to explain things in person. We will always plan on being your mentor and available anytime to answer questions.

  • Your piglet will go home with a gallon ziploc bag of feed. We feed a local grain mill's mix, but it has to be purchased by the ton. We recommend feeding Purina Pig & Sow from Tractor Supply. You will need pig grain on hand to transition your piglet to the new grain by mixing it with the feed we give you. We will explain at pickup.

  • Registration paperwork is submitted, and IHKR will email you a certificate.

  • Lifelong mentorship. When selecting a breeder, make sure they will be an excellent resource. Here is a great article on Your Breeder is Also Your Mentor.

  • If you cannot pick up your piglet within one week of weaning, a boarding cost of $5 a day will be required unless agreed upon in advance.
