The Pigfather ltd is a family run mobile Miniature Pig Petting and Education Service. We are the first company in the UK to train all of our Mini Pigs to a Miniature Pig Therapy Pet status, accredited by the AMPA. Our pigs are well socialised, friendly and cuddly animals and greatly benefit by being brought up with our children.
We are very grateful to our customers for their lovely reviews. They can be read on our Google Listing.
Our Miniature Pigs can be hired for parties, private events, weddings, anniversaries, school and nursery educational visits, TV and Media or any other event from 1 hour up to the whole day. We usually cover areas which are within 2 hours' drive from our base in Wimbledon.
In addition, we offer an amazing unique "Borrow My Piggy" Service offering you an opportunity to "borrow" our two piglets for a few days to learn what it takes to be a miniature pig owner. Their visit can be coincided with an important occasion or celebration, providing a cost effective option of hiring the animals for several hours. Included in this Service are Free Mini Pig Care Guide as well as a Free Miniature Pig Keeping Course which we deliver on arrival to drop off the piglets. We have extended our areas for this service and cover most of South East, South West and Midlands. For more information on "Borrow My Piggy" Service, please, visit https://www.thepigfather.co.uk/borrow-my-piggy/.
During our visit, we can give a short age appropriate educational talk covering interesting facts about miniature pigs and their origins. This is followed by the petting session where children and adults can get inside the pen to spend quality time with the piggies, stroking, tickling and cuddling them. If the area is secure, the piggies can then be walked on a lead in a garden, which always adds to a lot of excitement! Of course, there will be plenty of time for those unforgettable photographs.
If the visit is a Birthday Party, the child/adult will get a personalised laminated Certificate of our Visit as well as a Laminate Miniature Pig Fact File for them to keep.
Wonderful inquisitive pigs who are obviously well-loved and cared for
Would 100% recommend using The PigFather if you're looking to hire adorable pigs for events. We had Biscuit and Popcorn at my sister's Hen Do and it really made her day. Natasha made the whole process so easy and was so kind letting us play and cuddle the pigs, who were clearly so happy and loved. Thank you for making the day extra special! Lottie Johnson More...

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. If your kid likes pigs, the PigFather team is the one to hire for any event. In our case we had two adorable piglets for our son's birthday and it was such a memorable experience that he still talks about it 3 weeks later. In fact all our friends still do and their kids that came to the party. More...
