We are a female run business situated at Old Amersham Farm, Amersham, Bucks who started Kew Little Pigs simply from our love of pigs!
My Daughter became fascinated with pigs after watching the film Babe and we would frequently visit farms and animal sanctuaries never imagining we could ever keep our own pet pig. Then one day we discovered micro pigs! Unfortunately after doing some extensive research we found that most micro pig breeders are based in the countryside – far from London. And so in 2010 we decided to start our own micro pig company so others within the London area could share in the fun.
With great excitement I completed my pig handling courses, read books and interviewed the leading breeders and authors in the UK. I approached the Prince’s Trust with my business idea, took part in the enterprise programme to build the business and was awarded the funding to start Kew Little Pigs.
Over several years we have researched the industry and have set up unique services enabling more people to have first-hand experience with micro pigs. We are the only micro pig breeders and company in the UK that focus on our exhibiting our micro pigs and educating people on their intelligence, understanding their needs and owners responsibilities. We understand that not everybody will be able to keep a pet pig which is why we offer numerous other services including private parties, visiting schools, bringing our pigs to events to meet you and also through our interactive website which has photos and videos throughout recent years. To see a full list of our services, please go to our services page.
Having always been an animal lover, I have always wanted to work with them. The opportunity came to work with Kew little pigs and I grabbed the opportunity. While working with the company I have gained my Level 3 Business & Administration and I’m currently studying for my Level 3 in Veterinary care. My main passions in this job is Animal Welfare and Health and Safety – so when visiting you may see me walking round the farm doing my checks!
