Rent a Micro/Miniature Pig for Parties or Events. The UK’s First and Only Therapy Trained Micro/Miniature Pigs available for rent for any event or occasion.

The Pigfather is also the pioneer of  “Borrow My Piggy Experience” – offering a completely unique and exciting opportunity to rent our miniature pigs for a day or longer. The areas of Service are extended to other counties such as Somerset, Dorset, Devon, Cambridgeshire and others. Please, enquire to see if we cover your area.

Our micro pigs have featured in many promotional and commercial videos in London and we have worked alongside companies such as Flaregames (Tap Empire), Rise Media, Proseeders, LADBible, Hendrix Gin, ACA Live, Sanderson Design Group, Lion TV and Sky TV.

The PigFather was a key attraction at the Big Day Out for the King’s Centre this year. As I welcomed each of the 2000 or so guests I highlighted this attraction and soon there was a steady stream of parents and kids to see our two micro pig friends resplendent in bows. When I passed by on a couple of occasions there were lots of kids and adults with learning difficulties in the pen, hands on , really enjoying the experience alongside our little friends. Shaun thanks for making our BDO extra special this year

We booked a visit from Holly and Polly for my pig obsessed 8 year old son for his 8th birthday party. The boys were so excited and the mini pigs did not disappoint! Natasha did a wonderful job of introducing the pigs to a group of spellbound children. Her and her husband’s love and dedication to the pigs is obvious. It was the highlight of the party. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Pigfather to others (I already have!)

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. If your kid likes pigs, the PigFather team is the one to hire for any event. In our case we had two adorable piglets for our son’s birthday and it was such a memorable experience that he still talks about it 3 weeks later. In fact all our friends still do and their kids that came to the party. Natasha was so helpful in the entire process and professional. I was quite nervous having pigs in my backyard but the most amazing experience possible and HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Not just any birthday party, it was the most memorable one 🙂 Thank you!!
