Porkchop's Phat Farm...      A Sanctuary

Who doesn’t love a mini pig, right?


They can be great companions, are super smart,

and can even be house-trained.


But, contrary to popular belief, they don’t stay pint-sized.

A 'mini' pig is defined as being smaller than a regular farm hog... usually weighing around 100-200 pounds when fully grown. Sadly, these little pigs outgrow expectations, their owners struggle to handle them and often seek new homes.


Our journey with pot-bellied pigs started with Porkchop, who came to us at just two days old and was bottle-fed for the first few months. As the years passed, the idea of a pot-bellied pig sanctuary took root.


Porkchop, raised with pittie siblings, believes he's a dog. After nearly nine years as a house pig, he now enjoys his own own piggy condo with a loft, porch, fireplace, and A/C. He's a bit of an introverted, super-spoiled pig, weighing around 200 lbs.


Porkchop’s Phat Farm is now a haven for 13 pot-bellied pigs, 3 rescue goats, and roughly 12 rescue chickens. Three personal goats, another dozen chickens, a guinea, 9 geese, and 5 ducks also call the 2-acre site home.

The lifespan of a mini pig is typically 5 years, but the breed can live up to 12-18 years if cared for properly.
