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.


New Arrivals

Meet our new arrivals Guinae a female black and white pig who is very friendly and will sit for you when waiting for food. Also 4 new terrapins, Jack and Lenny who are both female and about 10 years old they came from Gordon Riggs in Rochdale apparently children were not being very nice to them so they needed to rehome. Buffy and Spike who are 11 years old and have travelled all the way from Devon. We would like to thank all donations received and hope our new animals will enjoy their new home.

Newt, Al & Pacino

Newt our lame pig who only walks on 3 legs, but gets around very well especially when its feeding time, has adopted our 2 rescue piglets Al and Pacino, as you can see from the pictures they are very happy and Newt has become their new mum.

New Terrapin/Turtle Home

Hello it as been a while since we spoke about the terrapins and turtles, as you can see from the pictures they are all very well and loving their new bespoke home, which is much bigger and deeper for them to swim around. We now have over 25. We love to watch them swim and play with their reptilian family.

Feeding Time

All the pigs at Pig Inn Heaven are having their daily feed of fresh fruit and vegetables which are purchased from Fairfield Compost, Smithfield Market, Manchester. We would like to say a massive thank you to all the staff for their continual support.

Move to New site & Rehoming

Hello Everyone

We have now moved onto the new site 500 yards up the road onto Sladenwood Stables, Halifax Road, Littleborough OL15 0LB. It has been a very busy time moving everything off the old site onto the new one, the weather has not been good to us which has made the move much harder. Works are still under construction but the Pigs, Goats & Hens are now on their new site and absolutely loving it, especially the views across the hills.

The Geese and Duck have all just been rehomed which is fantastic news and not too far away so we will be able to call and see them from time to time.

We hope the construction of the site will be completed by Mid May 2016 which will mean we can then open our doors to the new site and hope you will come along to visit us. Entrance fee will be £3.00 per person.
