What you'll do

We will meet you outside the house and go down to the barn. From there you will meet each pig (Bullet, Piper, Ivy, Dexter, Cash, Rosie & Quincy) and learn about their personal stories that lead them to me. Summer time: We will enter the pen so you can snuggle and take photos. For the last half, we will commence outside the pen with Cash, Ivy and Dexter, to give them snacks. Winter time: Cash, Dexter and Ivy will meet us inside where you can hang out in front of the wood stove and sip a warm beverage! The entire experience will last 60 minutes!
Other things to note
Should be comfortable around animals. Allergy alert for hay/straw. No smoking. Please leave your dogs at home! Family friendly.

Welcome to The Pearly Acre - Pig Haven, I'm Sarah and my husband is Shane.
We have 7 beautiful, smart, rambunctious and social pot belly pigs. My passion for pigs began with my first - Bullet, in 2017. Since then I have rescued 6 more pigs myself and have facilitated many adoptions. Because of all the misleading information about pigs staying small, they are often discarded from their homes very early on. Over 97% of pigs have seen more than one home in the first 2 years of their lives. I'm hoping by sharing this experience with you, you will walk away feeling more compassion towards these animals. All of the proceeds from this experience go towards feeding and vetting the pigs!

We enjoyed this experience. I've never scratched so many pig bellies! They were friendly and especially loved treat time. Some people brought apples and carrots to feed them at the end when they come out of the pen. I recommend visiting this sanctuary and bringing them carrots for extra attention;);) The pigs also loved the popcorn that the hosts provided.

What a magical experience! We had so much fun petting and feeding the pigs, we had plenty of time with them. Sarah is a wonderful host and her love for her pigs just radiates. My only complaint is that she wouldn't let me take one home!

Visiting The Pearly Acre was a wonderful experience. Sarah really took the time to personalize our visit and to answer all our questions, including those from an inquisitive four year old. The relationship she has with her animals is beautiful and we were lucky to be witness to it. What a wonderful place! We will be back.
