Pigs In Mud

Tuesday 19th July 2016 was a hot day down at Pigs Inn Heaven, look what the pigs got up to. Wallowing around in mud to protect their skin from the burning sun. What great sun protection, they really are very clever they even made the mud baths themselves.

Education Visit

Today Pigs Inn Heaven went to The Apple Tree Nursery in Rochdale. We took along 2 pigs and 2 terrapins for the children to interact with, they fed the pigs and stroked the terrapins, played pin the tail on the pig and we had a colouring competition and the best one got a prize. It was a very enjoyable morning. We would like to say a big thank you to all the staff at The Apple Tree Nursery for their hospitality (due to safeguarding we could not take pictures of the children) but did take pictures of the animals and the set up. If you are interested in Pigs Inn heaven coming along for a visit please contact Janet by email: with your requirements.

Summer Fete

On Friday 1st July 2016 between 5-7pm Pigs Inn Heaven took part in their very first Summer fete at Smithybridge Primary school in Littleborough, Rochdale. We had pin the tail on the pig and name the pig competition. We managed to raised £92. I would like to thank, Martin, Jess and Toni for all their hard work and help it was very much appreciated. We would also like to thank Smithybridge Primary School for inviting Pigs Inn Heaven to take part in their annual Fete.

Re-homing Bella & Babe

We have recently re-homed 2 of our lovely pigs Babe and Bella to Chloe Mabb in Kent, we hope they enjoy their forever loving home with their new family. Thank you very much Chloe for taking them. Chloe has sent pictures of them settling in.

Turtle Manor

Pigs Inn Heaven have been busy building a new home for the terrapin/turtles. Turtle Manor is their new home with an inside and outside pond which is fully heated and a filtration system fitted. It even has its own waterfall and a large basking area which starts inside the manor and continues outside through an arch way. We hope all our reptillian family enjoy their new home. To be quite honest I would not mind living there myself.
