Miniature Potbellied Pigs

Miniature Pigs are sometimes falsely marketed as micro pigs, pocket pigs, or teacup pigs. In the middle 1980’s, Keith Connell imported the first Miniature Vietnamese Potbellied Pigs from Southeast Asia. Miniature pigs belong to the porcine family. As pets, they grow to be 10 to 15 inches tall. Their length should be in proportion to height. The average weight is 25 to 55 pounds. The usual color is all black. Other rare colors include all white or black and white pintos with blue eyes. Miniature Potbellied Pigs have a sway back and a straight tail. Male pigs are called boars. Female pigs are called sows.

It takes three months, three weeks and three days to have baby piglets . Our babies here at Tanglewood are only 2 inches tall and 2 ounces when they are born. Because our mama pigs are so small, there are usually only four to six piglets in a litter. Because of their tiny size, they are usually weaned between 16 and 20 weeks old. Once weaned from mama’s milk, they are then bottle fed and eating an organic diet along with their Pig Chow. We also give them vitamins and fresh water. They are pee pad and litter box trained. Miniature pigs live up to 25 years.

Miniature Vietnamese Potbellied Pigs have quickly gained popularity for a number of reasons. They are exceptionally neat when given the opportunity to be so. They only become dirty when kept in surroundings that prevent them from being clean. They are not finicky eaters, don’t bark and rarely shed. Their tremendous intelligence and amiable nature are quickly making them a strong contender as America’s favorite pig.

We have litters of baby potbellied pigs available in the Spring and in the Winter around the holidays. They range in color from blacks, whites (pinks), and black and white pintos. Many of the babies have blue eyes. The average full grown adult height is 10 to 15 inches tall and weight is approximately 25 to 55 pounds.

We are very proud of the daily handling and care given to our miniatures here at Tanglewood Farm. We provide proper nutrition and quality veterinary care to all of our animals. Our livestock is current on vaccinations, dental checkups, hoof care, and worming. The health of our animals is very important to us, and we follow rather strict practices. We maintain a closed herd, which means we do not bring in any new animals, embryos or semen. Once an animal is sold, it may not be returned. So that we do not unintentionally introduce disease into our herds, we do not bring our animals to shows, and we do not borrow or lend animals for breeding. We prefer weanlings do not leave Tanglewood Farm before they are 6 months of age. They need time to grow and play with other weanlings, receive discipline from their mothers, and time to change their diet gradually to eliminate the desire for mother’s milk. This also enables Tanglewood Farm time to handle and bottle feed the babies. All miniatures come with Tanglewood Farm health papers showing up to date vaccinations, deworming schedule, and hoof trimming schedule. If you need transportation, we can arrange ground transport within the US and Canada. To other countries, we can arrange air transportation on major airlines.
