You'll be greeted personally by a member of the Huckleberry Woods team who will take you to meet the pigs and help you choose the perfect pig for you to walk and may recommend a particular pig. There'll be an introduction on how to walk your piggy to maximise enjoyment for both you and the piggy and then off you go. Please note, the pigs are now 3 years old, past the tiny piglet stage. They're about the size of a Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Your walk will be accompanied by an experienced and knowledgeable piggy handler and enthusiast who will be delighted to share all sorts of piggy facts and stories with you. You'll have plenty of opportunity to stroke the piggies, take photos and ask questions during your walk. You can stop to greet the miniature donkeys, Teddy Bear sheep, alpacas, ducks and chickens as you go. The pigs go at their own pace, they may amble about slowly or be feeling a bit more energetic - it all depends on the piggy on the day and how much fruit there is on the ground for them to graze. At the end of the walk we head back to the piggy's house for a well earned rest and a hand wash. Length of walk is around 20 minutes before the pigs head home. Please note piggy walks are for one person only - it's not possible to share a piggy. You're welcome to look around and see the other miniature animals before, during or after your walk.
I'm the co founder of Huckleberry Woods micro animal adventures. We specialise in offering micro pig walking opportunities. Based in an ancient Kentish orchard, we offer personal animal encounters and specifically opportunities to walk our beautiful harness trained micro pigs around a beautiful orchard and woodland on a lead. We offer a charming, rustic, low tech, family-run experience, a million miles away from the commercialism of other days out. We've been running Huckleberry Woods micro animal adventures for two years and in that time have earned the coveted Trip Advisor certificate of excellence. We also have an Airbnb holiday cottage on site if you wanted to extend your time with us here at Huckleberry Woods micro animal farm - https://airbnb.com/h/cottage-with-micro-animal-encounters.
We've got a range of wellies to borrow if it's been raining and you haven't brought your own.
The piggy walks take place in a small ancient orchard and woodland called Huckleberry Woods in Faversham, Kent. It's a beautiful and peaceful space where animals freerange in the orchard and are free to spend their time grazing, playing and exhibiting natural behaviors.
