Piglets make the per­fect pets

They’re hy­poal­ler­genic and you don’t even need to take them home

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

OWN­ERS of an Amer­sham farm is wait­ing ex­pec­tantly.

Two of Kew Lit­tle Pigs’ sows are heav­ily preg­nant so new piglet ad­di­tions are due to ar­rive very soon.

The mi­cro pig busi­ness was thrown into doubt last year when it was evicted from the land it had been leas­ing.

But at the eleventh hour a new home for the an­i­mals was found at Old Amer­sham Farm in School Lane, Amer­sham.

The com­pany breeds and sells mi­cro pigs, which, it says, make per­fect pets as they are hy­poal­ler­genic – ideal for those who have al­ler­gies to dog or cat fur.

But it also of­fers an adop­tion ser­vice for those un­able or un­will­ing to make the com­mit­ment to hav­ing a pet at home.

A spokesman for the farm said: “We know it is not re­al­is­tic for ev­ery­one to own a pig – even though the idea is fab. Kew Lit­tle Pigs of­fers an adop­tion ser­vice for those un­able to keep a pig at their home – you’ll have the chance to come to our farm to spend some time with your piggy friend.

“Mi­cro pigs as pets are be­com­ing a real trend, and for the right rea­sons - they are hy­poal­ler­genic for those with al­ler­gies and are sim­ple and easy to keep and main­tain. In most cases they do not need to be walked and are quite self suf­fi­cient- for those who are wor­ried about leav­ing their pets while at work.”
