What you'll do

You'll be greeted personally by a member of the Huckleberry Woods team who will take you to meet the pigs and help you choose the perfect pig for you to walk and may recommend a particular pig. There'll be an introduction on how to walk your piggy to maximise enjoyment for both you and the piggy and then off you go. Please note, the pigs are now 3 years old, past the tiny piglet stage. They're about the size of a Staffordshire Bull Terrier.

Your walk will be accompanied by an experienced and knowledgeable piggy handler and enthusiast who will be delighted to share all sorts of piggy facts and stories with you. You'll have plenty of opportunity to stroke the piggies, take photos and ask questions during your walk. You can stop to greet the miniature donkeys, Teddy Bear sheep, alpacas, ducks and chickens as you go.
The pigs go at their own pace, they may amble about slowly or be feeling a bit more energetic - it all depends on the piggy on the day and how much fruit there is on the ground for them to graze. At the end of the walk we head back to the piggy's house for a well earned rest and a hand wash.
Length of walk is around 20 minutes before the pigs head home. Please note piggy walks are for one person only - it's not possible to share a piggy.
You're welcome to look around and see the other miniature animals before, during or after your walk.

A really unique experience, you feel like you are on a family farm, so welcome. My daughter walked a micro pig and absolutely loved it. Covid guidelines adhered to. Lovely play area as well as the animals and so friendly and relaxed. Not commercial at all. We had a brilliant time.

A really fun experience that we haven't had before. Walking the pigs was more like being walked by the pigs as they hunted out the plums. Would definitely do again!

We had an incredible time at the micro farm! Everybody was extremily friendly, and the animals were clearly happy and very well looked after. We learnt so much about the animals, did you know piglets love tummy rubs?! I didnt, until i found a piglet laying on his back and asking for a scratch! The team went to amazing lengths to make sure that we had a super day. We walked pigs, fed chickens, donkeys and alpacas, and had lots of cuddles with sheep! We also had a cup of tea and an icecream inside a cute little gated area (the animals may have been quite interested in our food otherwise). Also, on a side note, the animals had amazing names! We walked Lord Truffles and Princess Pandora (two pigs!) And a friendly sheep joined us to see if he could acquire some extra yummy watermelon. Im really not sure what else to say, I'm not sure I could ever write enough to portray what a wonderful day out this is!

Such fun to get “up close and personal” with the wide range of animals. Being able to feed the chickens, alpacas and donkeys was special. Then came the pig walking! Great and unusual experience. One we won’t ever forget. Belinda was lovely and Toby was spectacular. Lovely experience from start to finish. Highly recommend to animal lovers.
