What you'll do
We will first go over the layout of the property and educate you on Kunekune pigs. I will have treats prepared for you to feed the pigs if you wish. You will get to sit in the backyard with the piglets and you can also meet Ripley our tiny house pig who has become a favorite on our Instagram account. Then you can also visit with our girl pigs and give them belly rubs. They love attention and being petted. I can take some photos for you with my DSLR Camera. Then if you also want to meet our 2 horses and rescue donkey. I will take you out to meet them. We also have chickens and ducks. We can send you home with some fresh eggs as well.

I am the owner of Halbert Farm a small 10 acre farm who focuses on raising Kunekune pigs who were critically endangered with only 6 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 Instragram @halbertfarm to get to know the animals before your visit.
an assortment of snacks for humans and pigs
