Thank you for your interest in getting a piglet from us. We have purebred Juliana pigs, JPAR registered. They are born and raised in the house, litter box trained, and socialized with people, dogs, and a cat. We post lots of photos and videos of the babies! Folks on our waiting list may visit once the piglets are a couple of weeks old to pick out their new family member, meet our adult pigs, socialize with the babies and ask any questions. Piglets can go to their new homes after they are weaned and have been eating solid food for at least a week, no earlier than 6 weeks of age.
Pet price is $1,000. This means limited registration, no breeding rights, and spay/neuter contract. Buyer is responsible for getting the piglet spayed or neutered once they’re old enough. I know some breeder spay/neuter at a very young age, but I personally will not put a 6 week old piglet through surgery. Four to six months of age is when I would suggest. If you’ve done your research, you know that intact (not spayed/neutered) pigs do not make good house pets.
The price for full JPAR registration and breeding rights is $1,500. This means buyer may use the pig for breeding at some point down the road. Our suggestion/rule of thumb for breeding a Juliana sow is waiting until she is two years old or twenty pounds. With the boars it’s not as big of a deal, but anyone who’s been around pigs much can tell you they are fully capable of getting a sow pregnant at a VERY young age. Miele’s last litter was born on April 30, 2016 but all three of the piglets had homes lined up before birth. This is typical. Due to high demand, most of our piglets are sold before they are born. If you’re interested in getting a pig from us, the first step is to review the information on our website. Most of your questions will be answered here! We are happy to answer any specific questions that are not addressed on our website. Do your research, check your zoning, make sure it’s legal to have a pig where you live. Remember, despite their small size, they are still considered livestock and this affects where you can keep them.Ready to put down a deposit? Please call or send an email, tell us about yourself, your experience with pigs and other pets, etc. We want to talk to each potential buyer to make sure it’s going to be a good fit for one of our babies. We’re looking for long term, committed owners that are going to provide the best care. This is why you will not find a paypal button on our website where just anyone can send money for a piglet. These are living creatures, not a toy purchased off Amazon, or an object to be given as a gift.The deposit is $250 and nonrefundable and goes towards the purchase price. Money can be sent via check or for a small fee, paypal or credit card. The remaining balance is due upon pickup or before shipping. Piglet pick is based on the order in which deposit is received. Here’s how the waiting list works…. When a litter is born, the person first on the waiting list has the option of choosing a piglet from that litter or waiting for the next litter. Once the first person has made a decision, we’ll then offer piglet pick to the second person on the waiting list and so on and so forth. Some people want a certain gender or a piglet from a specific sow, whereas others just want first available. Shipping is available within the continental US for an additional cost of approximately $300. Our piglets sell quickly, so get your name on our waiting list for the next litter right away!
We are located in the Battle Creek/Kalamazoo area of southwest Michigan. Visitors welcome by appointment only, please see details below.Because we have so many people wanting to visit the pigs, it has become necessary to set up some guidelines. It takes up a great deal of my time to host visitors and answer questions and my time is valuable. To ensure that folks are respectful of that fact, there is a $20 fee for a visit up to an hour. Now if people do end up purchasing a pig from me, this fee goes towards the deposit/purchase price. For the families that have already put down deposits, there is no fee for visiting. Again, this is not meant to deter people from visiting, simply to make sure I’m not spending hours of my time hosting ‘tire kickers’ that have no intention of actually purchasing a pig. Please keep in mind that I only have a couple pigs, so this is not a ‘petting zoo’ type scenario. Visiting my pigs means that you are guest in my home, so please immediate family only, no large groups. My schedule is pretty flexible, but I do require appointments made ahead of time so that I can schedule my days accordingly. The one hour visit starts at the scheduled appointment time whether you are here or not, so I would encourage you to arrive on time. Thank you for your understanding! Feel free to call or email to set up a visit; my pigs love visitors (especially Gunther!) and I am happy to share information about owning them. Kristin Email: [email protected]
