WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
Natasha the owner was so lovely and helped me from the day I contacted her. She sent me lots of information for me to read and offered to be on the end of the phone if I had any questions. Natasha and her 2 daughters who delivered my piglet were so lovely and you could see they were sorry to see her go. I would recommend anyone to purchase a piglet through the Pigfather company. Thank you so much
Natasha, the owner and breeder, puts all her heart and soul into the wonderful care she provides for all her animals. They are her pets whom she adores tremendously. Her knowledge and skills are outstanding and I can honestly say the services the Pigfather provides are of the highest quality in animal care and customer service.
Good morning Natasha,
The girls are settling in lovely, I think they’re very happy. I have attached a few photos for you. Many thanks for all what you have done for us. It’s so nice to know that you are there if we need you, really comforting to know. You are a great lady with a great passion for your piggy’s and it is lovely to see.
Once again many Thanks.
