It was all fun on the farm on Thursday as new editions, three week old female Mangalitsa piglets joined in the Teddy Bears picnic. And although they are not teddy bears yet, by the time they are adults, they will have grown their unique woolly, curly coats, making them the cuddliest pigs around.
Incoming Chairman at Willow Tree Farm said “We welcome these new editions to our farm, and we are excited to announce that some more babies will be making their debut to the public in three weeks time - not to be missed. We are working towards becoming a rare breed specialist and already have several species on site including the Tamworth pigs, Aylesbury Ducklings, European Eagle Owls and a rare bronze turkey.”
Willow Tree Family Farm now have their own Face book page which has details of all their forthcoming events, including the Halloween spectacular in October. And you can enter their competition to name the baby Mangalitsa pigs.
