Meet our pigs!
Dragonfly Acres is a truly working micro-farm. We are currently growing our family of Potbelly / American Guinea Hog / Kune Kune mix pigs. When we moved here, these piggies were running loose and being fed randomly by our neighbors. Unfortunately, they were not in the best of health being severely underfed and covered in sand fleas which caused them to lose most of their hair. They offered to help us catch them and give them a forever home. Since then they have thrived and are now permanent members of our family. Dumpling and Elvira are our current mating pair, while Lucifer is available for stud services.
Current prices for piglets are $50 for females and $30 for males. These pigs are technically considered "mini-pigs". This means that they are less than three feet tall and average between 75 and 200lbs. when fully mature at 2-3 years old. Pigs make wonderful pets due to their high intelligence and long lives. It is not uncommon for these pigs to be litter box trained when young and they can live up to 20 years. They love toys and need the same care, activity level, and attention as a large breed dog (such as working dogs like Malamutes) so please take this into consideration when deciding if pig adoption is right for you.
If you are interested in adoption or you have any questions, please use the contact form at the bottom of the website to let us know. We cannot "ship" these babies. We are willing to work out transportation or local pick up/delivery anywhere between Fort Smith and Russellville, AR.
Dumpling is a 3-year-old Kune Kune / American Guinea Hog Mix. He is mated with Elvira. He has the markings and long hair of the Kune Kune and the wide face and tusks of the AGH. He is your typical boar with a kingly attitude and loves his treats and a good scratching brush. We've also discovered that he loves to play with dog toys such as knotted ropes and red kickballs.
This sweet little chonk is our spokes pig, Bao Bao. Affectionately nicknamed Bean Bun by his Mimi and Baocefus by his Mom.
He was the runt of his litter. Their mother accidentally stepped on him during labor and cut his side pretty bad. Piper rushed him to the vet, but the prognosis wasn't good. We did not give up on him though. We had 3 weeks of sleepless nights, bottle feeding and bandage changing, but he pulled through.
However, by that time he was completely imprinted on Piper as "mom" so he could never go back to the barn. So he is a couch potato now. =)
I could write a whole page about this child, but suffice it to say he is highly intelligent, a sucker for belly rubs and the occasional Hershey's Kiss, and absolutely spoiled rotten.
Elvira is a 3-year-old Potbelly and AGH cross. She has a wonderfully sweet personality and is a very good mama. She is our queen and she now takes care of our other little mamas until they are big enough to be mamas on their own.
Lucifer is a Potbelly / Kune Kune mix. He has the long hair of his father but will be smaller like his mother, who was a white potbelly. Our Luci is available for stud service in the greater Fort Smith/ Russellville AR area. Contact us for details.
♥The rest of our farm family♥
When we moved out onto our little piece of heaven here in central Arkansas, we never expected to be blessed with our farm family so quickly. We had planned to add goats, pigs, chickens, and possibly ducks and cows gradually over the next five years. Instead, we were given 5 pigs, 4 chickens, and 3 goats in the first 6 months.
Our farm family has grown to currently include; 4 pigs, 21 chickens, 19 ducks, 4 geese, 4 barn cats who have forgotten that they're supposed to be feral, and 5 dogs. We are honestly loving every minute of the chaos. LOL
