What you'll do

How often do you have the chance to spend time with an adorable pot belly pig? Well, here is your chance! All of the pot belly pigs at Wayward Ranch Animal Sanctuary have been rescued, whether from abuse, neglect, or simply owners who were not properly educated about how to care for them. With so many myths being perpetuated about these so called "mini pigs" we want to educate about what they are really like while we have fun spoiling them with you. Come and enjoy a piggy day when you can come, take a tour of our entire facility, learning about the work we do with horses, goats, dogs, cats, and pigs. Finish the tour by helping us to feed our pigs their dinner and some treats and you will get happy grunts and tail wags in return!

Other things to note

Whenever you are interacting with animals, it is important to keep in mind that animals can be unpredictable. They may accidentally scratch you or even grab a finger when they mean to grab a treat from your hand. Our pigs are not aggressive generally, but it is always best to be cautious around all animals!

I am a co-founder of Wayward Ranch Animal Sanctuary, Inc., a nonprofit animal rescue and sanctuary dedicated to providing a quality life to the animals who need it the most. Rescuing and educating about animals is one of my passions in life, but I don't think I love anything more than I love pigs! Our herd of rescued pot belly pigs changed my life and taught me to think about the food on my plate, and look about animals as friends instead of food, and maybe they can do the same for you. Even if you do not choose to become vegetarian or vegan, you will still get so much out of an experience with our pigs, and it will be something for you to remember for a long time!

The farm is gorgeous and you play with pigs who also like to lay down and let you scratch their bellies... Go already!

Such a great experience and you get more than just the pigs! Animals are super friendly and you really get to interact with them. Our host was Maggie who was absolutely amazing. It’s clear that the staff loves these animals and they are well taken care of.

Getting a chance to meet the animals of the barn was really awesome. We were provided with a ton of information almost on every animal. All questions were answered and very informative.

Great experience. Our guide Maggie was very enthusiastic and super knowledgeable. She had answers for all of our questions. Only one of the pigs really enjoys human interaction. The other ones prefer to be more solo. Feeding them was definitely the highlight. We also got to visit their cat room which had the cutest cats!
