Meet Daisy.

Welcome to quaint Willintgton, Connecticut. 41 acres of undisturbed pastureland and forest is the serenity that sweet ‘almost’ 3 year-old Daisy gets to call home. Daisy is an 80-pound princess/farm-foreman/house pig – living the dream.  She’s a lucky pig and here is her story. PE🐽NY: When and where did you get Daisy? We picked Daisy up when she was about nine weeks old. We bought her from a breeder (newenglandteacuppiggies.com) in Buzzards Bay, MA. She is a veterinarian who raises piglets and spays/neuters them before they go to their forever homes. We were lucky and only had to wait a few months for Daisy.

Did you always want a pig? Pigs are my favorite animal and I have always wanted one, I had just never really looked into getting one.  I was living in Madrid at the time (working on my master’s degree) and started to get a little homesick.  As a result from that, I did my research and after I found the perfect breeder, I paid a deposit without even thinking twice.  Best decision ever. PE🐽NY: How did you find her breeder? Lola came from AZ Micro Mini Pigs in Queen Creek, Arizona.  I first found the breeders website, among many others, but after finding her …
