What you'll do

This is an hour long experience with adorable mini pigs where you learn interesting facts about these amazing animals, hold and play with the piglets, and take as many pictures and videos as you’d like to remember your experience. I normally start the experience by greeting you and any other guests at the gate with any pigs accustomed to the routine for a quick introduction, then they will help me lead you to our adorable “Piggy Show Room”. (Due to our temporary location this experience will be hosted outdoors) Here is where we sit on the floor (optional, but yields the most fun) on top of blankets and/or fluffy rugs and allow the pigs to become familiar with you by offering them treats. Once they feel comfortable and have had some yummy snacks, you can play with, hold and take pictures of them, as well as learn fun facts for the remainder of the experience. I will go over any need to know information in the beginning and throughout the session.

Other things to note:

Piglets have individual personalities, each visit will vary slightly.

Children under two are welcome to attend accompanied by a parent or guardian.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me. (818)731-5667 or via email elissa@oinkssocalpiggery.com (this email address is temporarily down, contact the number above via text)

My name is Elissa, I am the owner and operator of Oinks So Cal Piggery. It all started a with my first pig Tyrion. He was a surprise gift from my fiance' for Christmas and it was love at first site. The love I have for Tyrion has forever changed my life and inspired me to bring not only awareness of a pig’s intelligence and compassion, but the love and joy they bring to your life. Tyrion has helped me become a more loving, patient, and sensitive person. I am forever in his debt. I want as many people as possible in the LA area and beyond to know the same joy that Tyrion has brought to my life. It's because of him that I am able to do what I love and spread the love to other families.

Marvelous time with super cute animals. Elissa is the perfect host, she took this experience to a whole new level, from telling us everything about the piggies to actually helping us how to get along and play with them, also explained how does she work with them, truly something that you cannot miss!

Elissa was very knowledgeable and very willing to share facts about these cute little pigs. She clearly cares a lot about them and always has the pigs best interest in mind, which is exactly what we were looking for.

Truly a bucket list-worthy experience. Elissa is so caring and knowledgeable, and the piglets I played with (Halo, Harmony, and Faith) were utterly charming. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I will never forget.
