What you'll do

***Amy had 8 Piglets on March 24th! Banks had 4 piglets on Match 31st!***
***Follow @halbertfarm on Facebook, Instagram and Twitch for updates and to meet the pigs before your visit***

We will start the experience in the backyard where you will meet Ripley our house pig. You'll learn about the history of Kunekune pigs and what makes them so unique. If we have younger pigs that are living in the backyard you'll get to meet them then too. I'll have treats prepared for you to feed the pigs and you'll learn how to make them sit and get their treats. Then I'll take you to meet the adult pigs first the girls and then the boys. We have 20 pigs that make up "Halbert Herd" and their ages range from 4 months to 8 years. You'll get to feed the adults treats and they love getting attention and being petted. Most of them will lay down and want their belly rubbed. If we have piglets you'll get to spend time in the piglet pen, depending on their age, you may be able to feed them treats and when they get to be about 3 weeks old they will crawl on your lap.

Other things to note
You may get dirty and we will be outside. Pay attention to the weather and dress accordingly. If you want to bring an extra pair of clothes to change into after, you can use the bathroom to change and freshen up. If you have rain boots or other type of mud boots you can bring those to wear.

Hi! I'm Rebeka and I've always dreamed of having a farm. I grew up in Hawaii and moved to Texas to make that dream come true. I started Halbert Farm a small 10 acre farm in 2013 my main focus is raising Kunekune pigs who were critically endangered with only 8 pigs left in the 1970's. Our pigs pasture graze on the land and have two ponds that they cool off in. You'll also get to meet Ripley our "instafamous" pig, she lives in the house with us after having to be hand raised. Follow us on Instagram @halbertfarm to get to know the animals before your visit.

This is so much fun!!!! Hosts are super friendly and welcoming, in addition to being super knowledgeable and willing and able to answer any questions. The pigs are adorable and, if I say so myself, are excellent stress relief. I would definitely visit again.

My favorite stop of our trip. I know you're on the fence about the price & possibly distance but it was seriously worth it. What a gorgeous gem we found and it was next to a winery ;) Rebeka is so attentive. Providing us with snacks and drinks. It was so hot out and she kept us shaded. Joshua and Rebeka are knowledgeable, honest, passionate and super chill. It was easy to conversate with them and ask questions. We were lucky to get their undivided attention that day. However, I think they could easily juggle larger groups just fine! Rebeka was kind and offered to take our pictures while we held piglets. She kept us well stocked on veggies to feed every pig. We were able to use the restroom beforehand and wash up afterwards in their kitchen. We followed her tips. Wore shoes that we knew would get dirty. The pigs can't sweat so they cool off in pools and mud. So I got wet and muddy. Loved the experience! Luckily, we had time to go back to our airbnb to wash up and change clothes. So be mindful of your lower half. We felt the time was just enough to soak it all in. They're living a pretty sweet dream and we wish them continued success! Worth every penny. Enjoyed the stories and cuddles. Thank you!

If you're ever close by (within an hours drive), or its on the way wherever you're going, definitely reserve a time and stop by. Its. Worth. Every. Penny. amazing experience with the farm animals, super cute piglets and older pigs. The host had backstories and histories pertaining to each pig's life! There were also stories about the other farm animals on the property! Once again, an absolutely wonderful experience!
