How I got the name 'Purple Pig'
I have kept and bred kune kune pigs for many years and sitting in the barn waiting for some piglets to be born I said to my daughter who was 4 at the time that I was hoping for some spotty ones this time. Her answer was that she was wishing for a purple one! We are still waiting for a purple one to be born on the farm so don't be too disappointed when one doesn't attend.
All the animals kept here are part of our family and live a very happy life doing what comes natural to them, with accommodation, enrichment and space to their requirements. Through training and spending lots of time with the animals I know if they are suited to attend visits. Occasionally some do show signs of not enjoying the attention, these animals are not made to work and spend their days doing what they do enjoy, out of the limelight.
