|On one day of the year the pigs come off their diet and enjoy an all they can eat buffet, brought along by our visitors!
Please bring apples, pears, bananas, watermelon, carrots or pumpkins along to add to the huge lunchbox that we will be making up for each pig, then enjoy watching them enthusiastically dig in.
Then you can meet the chickens, goats, sheep, cows, pigs and other happy animals who have a forever home at the Farm Animal Rescue sanctuary where animals run free over 55 acres of hills, forests and fields.
