Well Done Oliver

Oliver Lewis has worked at Pigs Inn Heaven on Saturdays for 2 years whilst studying for his GCSE at Wardle High School. He as worked very hard and learnt a lot of new skills from site manager Martin and gained very good exam results from school. Oliver is now going to put his skills into practice by attending Newton Rigg College, Penrith this month (September). He will be studying Game keeping. This week Oliver was helping Martin build the new pig boarding pen. We would all like to wish Oliver every success at college and hope he achieves his goals. Best Wishes and thank you very much for your enthusiasm and dedication.

Pigs In Mud

Tuesday 19th July 2016 was a hot day down at Pigs Inn Heaven, look what the pigs got up to. Wallowing around in mud to protect their skin from the burning sun. What great sun protection, they really are very clever they even made the mud baths themselves.

Education Visit

Today Pigs Inn Heaven went to The Apple Tree Nursery in Rochdale. We took along 2 pigs and 2 terrapins for the children to interact with, they fed the pigs and stroked the terrapins, played pin the tail on the pig and we had a colouring competition and the best one got a prize. It was a very enjoyable morning. We would like to say a big thank you to all the staff at The Apple Tree Nursery for their hospitality (due to safeguarding we could not take pictures of the children) but did take pictures of the animals and the set up. If you are interested in Pigs Inn heaven coming along for a visit please contact Janet by email: with your requirements.
