What you'll do

**We had 8 litters this year! Latest born October 6, 2021***

***Follow @halbertfarm on Facebook, Instagram and Twitch for updates and to meet the pigs before your visit***

We will start the experience in the backyard where you will meet Ripley the house pig. You'll learn about the history of Kunekune pigs and what makes them so unique. If we have younger pigs that are living in the backyard you'll get to meet them then too. I'll have treats prepared for you to feed the pigs and you'll learn how to make them sit and get their treats. Then I'll take you to meet the adult pigs first the girls and then the boys. We have 20 pigs that make up "Halbert Herd" and their ages range from 4 months to 9 years. You'll get to feed the adults treats and they love getting attention and being petted. Most of them will lay down and want their belly rubbed. If we have piglets you'll get to spend time in the piglet pen, depending on their age, you may be able to feed them treats and when they get to be about 3 weeks old they will crawl on your lap.

Other things to note
Make sure to wear closed toes shoes, pigs like to chew on toes. Rain, hiking, mud boots are great options. You will get dirty and we will be outside. Pay attention to the weather and dress accordingly. Long pants work better even when its hot because we may walk in tall grass in the pastures.

Hi! I am Rebeka and I've always dreamed of having a farm. I grew up in Hawaii and moved to Texas to make that dream come true. I met Josh here in Texas and talked him into becoming a farmer. We started Halbert Farm a small 10 acre farm in 2013 with our main focus of raising Kunekune pigs who were critically endangered in the 1970's. Our pigs pasture graze on the land and have two ponds that they cool off in. You'll also get to meet Ripley our "instafamous" pig, she lives in the house with us after having to be hand raised. Follow us on Instagram @halbertfarm to get to know the animals before your visit.

Piggies!!!! What a magical experience! If you’d like to hang out with wonderful people who treat their animals like kids, this is the place to go! I learned so much about the kunekunes, and all of their other magical creatures. I’m a Ripley fan for life!!

We enjoyed meeting all the adorable piggies. It was great meeting all of them and feeding them veggies. We got lots of great pictures and enjoyed getting to hold and see the piglets too! Thanks again!

What a fantastic experience! Any animal lover will enjoy their time on the farm. Our time there was informative and so much fun. The piggies are adorable and very social. The pace was not rushed which allowed plenty of time to interact with the pigs and see their personalities. Hopefully we can visit again - maybe a year from now to see how the piggies have grown.
