Heligan Native Pig Weekend

Heligan are excited to be bringing a new event to our visitors from our Rare Breed Farm park, with a weekend dedicated to our love of Pigs!

To coincide with National Pig day on 1st March and also February’s start of the Chinese year of the Pig, Our livestock Team plan to introduce you to all 11 UK Native breeds of pig, all at the same location at the same time.

Heligan Native Pig Weekend launches on Friday 1st March and closes on Sunday 3rd March, with all our visiting pigs and their devoted breeders available to meet you from 10am~4pm daily in The Barn and Paddocks.

Pigs are a massive favourite on the Home Farm with staff and visitors alike. We all find it difficult to choose a favourite between the cheeky Berkshires, the enormous Lops or the chatty and colourful Tamworth’s, and delight in getting to know their characters, putting them to work and in welcoming adorable new arrivals every Spring. For this weekend we will have 11 breeds to enjoy and of all these characters, will you be able to pick a favourite?
