Ridgely Acres Mini Pigs

Mini Pig General Information

I take great pride in being an honest & very reputable mini pig breeder.  Being up front & honest helps to ensure my piglets get into wonderful, informed forever homes.  Every piglet that leaves Ridgely Acres, leaves with lifetime breeder support.  My piglets get weaned at 8 weeks & I will NOT wean early or sell as bottle babies- so please do not waste time by asking- It is not in the best interest of the pig.  I send weekly update videos on weekends once deposits are placed. The piglets will leave here vaccinated, dewormed, handled daily, started on litter box training, vet checked, with a harness/leash set & with a little starter care package!  Male piglets can be neutered by my vet before leaving for an additional cost. The parents height is your best indicator of the size that your pig will be as an adult- ethical breeders do not weigh their pigs because they are such dense/compact animals they carry their weight very different from say, a dog.  They also do not guarantee an adult weight- that is impossible. Both parents of every litter are always on farm for you to meet!


Mini Pigs make absolutely fabulous pets, but they are definitely not for everyone, so please do your research & take time to consider the following before deciding to add a piggy to your family:


1) Check your housing/city/town zoning to make sure pigs are allowed


2) These are mini pigs- there is no such thing as a teacup, nano, micro, etc. pig.  Even if you do not buy from me, run the other way if a breeder uses those terms.  The true definition of a mini pig is a pig that is a mini compared to a full size farm hog.  The parent pigs are the best way to get an idea of how big your piglet will be.  My pigs mature to roughly the size of a medium dog (I.e. beagle, basset hound, English bulldog).


3) Make sure that you have a Veterinarian that sees pigs

Available Piglets

*PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE AD BELOW- there is alot of important info to consider before making the decision to add a piggy to your family*

Ridgely Acres has welcomed a litter of 8 mini pigs to the farm! The parents of these mini pigs are Waylon, our chipmunk, blue eyed boar from Texas & our silver & white girl, Twinkles. We also have the paternal granddam on farm, so two generations here so far!  All piglets will get an iron injection, vaccinated, dewormed with 2 different classes of dewormers, started on coccidia prevention, started on litter box training & are handled daily. We also send home their first dewormer that they will need after leaving us, a harness & food for transitioning. 

Piglets are $300.00 (I require a non-refundable deposit to reserve your piglet. I do NOT hold without a deposit for ANY amount of time- NO EXCEPTIONS). They will be weaned and ready to leave Wednesday July 20th (I will NOT wean early- it is not in the best interest of the piglet).  If you would like your piglet neutered before leaving, I have an amazing vet who can do that. As far as spaying goes, it is the opinion of my Veterinarian and myself that you should wait until 6 months old to spay. 

Mini Pigs make absolutely fabulous pets, but they are definitely not for everyone, so please do your research & take the time to consider the following before deciding to add a piggy to your family:

1) Check your housing/city/town zoning to make sure pigs are allowed

2) These are Mini Pigs- there is no such thing as a teacup, nano, micro, etc. pig.  If you are worried about having a pig that fits the "teacup myth" then a pig is definitely not for you.  A healthy, well fed mini pig is the goal- not a pig who has been half starved to achieve the "myth." Those terms are incredibly misleading & should not be used by any ethical, responsible breeder. Mini Pigs are a mini compared to a farm pig.  The parent pigs are the best way to get a general idea of how big your piglet will be. My pigs mature to roughly the size of a medium dog (i.e. basset hound, English bulldog).

3) Make sure that you have a Veterinarian that sees pigs- not all large animal/farm vets see pigs!

4) If you have someone you need to check with to make sure it is ok to add a piggy to your home (I.e.- spouse, significant other, room mate, landlord, relative, etc.) Please do so BEFORE contacting the farm

5) Pigs take a lot of training & patience. Making a commitment to a pig is a lot like committing to a lifelong toddler

6) Research, research & research some more! An educated owner is key to a successful, forever home.
