The Little Pig Pen began life in Leitchville, Northern Victoria and is where we bred Australian Miniature Pigs. We breed these gorgeous pigs for people and families living on farms or a couple of acres. Where they may dream of setting up a boutique hobby farm, or just yearn for a new addition to the family, and they love pigs. Nothing too big, normal pigs are close to the size of a Shetland Pony, and this might be a bit big for you to handle. A miniature pig from The Little Pig Pen could be just the pig for you!
Miniature pigs in Australia have come about from selectiy breeding down smaller breed of pigs over many years to reduce their size to about that of a medium to large dog and we dedicated breeders can now offer a much more manageable sized pig with a more appealing stockier body type and short bear like faces. Australian miniature pigs are not a registered “breed of pig” and it will take many more years of breeding and working on genetics to be able to put a true standard on the Australian Miniature Pigs height.
I have been breeding miniature pigs since 2009. I started out by purchasing two piglets from another breeder, a sow and a boar.
