Congratulations to Rowan on Rosie May's prediction & Carl for his Jill piglet prediction!
You will each receive a Bronze Level of Adoption! This includes One hour visit with a friend OR Family member to the farm to visit our lovely pig mums! AND Quarterly news updates on the farm & your adopted pig.
Our fantastic farm manager Jen anre her flatmate are currently nursing one of Rosie-May's piglets as he wasn't doing too well. This little man needed a name, so we lauched a competition on Facebook and had some fantastic entries, such as Boris, Adonis and Nightingale, but one name kept being repeated. We would like to present to you Tiny Tim! He is a cheeky little one, who is thriving and currently keeping Jen up all hours in the night and wanting to play! We're hoping he can rejoin his mother and siblings in a few weeks when he is feeling stronger.
If you have any questions you'd like to ask, email Olivia, our Founder & Managing Director email us at email@example.com & we shall do our best to answer them LIVE on SATURDAY!

Due to the effects of Covid-19 our once thriving business is becoming a great concern for us.
The majority of our income comes from our visitors, bookings and private events.
Closing our doors to the public over 3 weeks ago has left us in a very worrying financial situation, especially as we are in limbo with over 50 pigs and piglets to care for plus other animals on the farm.
Trying to remain as humble as possible in these times of hardship, we switched our attention to upselling our merchandise, designing activity packs and reducing our adoptions by 50% .
Sadly we do not have any more resources and with the births of our planned spring litters, we have growing concern for our beloved animals.
The feed bill for our pigs costs us in excess of £1000 every month, this coupled with our monthly business outgoings has left us uncertain about the
future of our beloved Kew Little Pigs.
We are now getting to a stage where we need to reach out and ask for some support.
We know we have many loving and loyal supporters who have been so amazing to us in recents weeks. They have purchased adoptions and merchandise - which at the moment is what is feeding our animals.
We cant thank you enough.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank those that have already donated - it means the world to us! You have helped us reach our £1000 target - we cannot believe it! We will be keeping the page open, as we do not know how long this lockdown will go on for, so every penny is helping us care for our beloved animals. Since giving birth Jill has also been unwell, so we have had to call the vet out and provide critical care for 2 of her piglets, we're pleased to say they are all doing a lot better, but this is a cost we were not expecting.
If you are able to help, the pigs would be forever greatful.
Thank you all for all your comments and messages we recieve daily, they have really helped us through these difficult times.
Kew Little Pigs would like to send our gratitude and thanks to our incredible health service.
You deserve praise and recognition for the selfless hard work you provide our country each and every day. We'd like to offer all NHS workers and their friends and family 50% off our most popular Piggy experience, piggy pet and play.
Proof of NHS ID will need to be provided when coming to the farm
You can buy this as a gift for a member of the NHS as a thank you, however on the day of the event they must bring a valid NHS ID . Failure to do so means the event can be forfeited.
All adoptions are sent out via email, making the perfect gift. These would make fantastic birthday presents for all the family. Remember there's no limit on how many pigs you can adopt.
Help support our small farm business by purchasing a great value Adoption that includes a downloadable and printable Adoption Activity Pack that you will be emailed and be apart of the Kew Little Pigs family and know that you personally helped support your chosen pig during this time. All adoptions are online and will be emailed direct to you or the person intended for. (Please leave us name and email on the checkout so that it can go to the right person)
