  1. We are looking to buy weaners end of Febuary into March, would you have any around this time for sale.

    Margaret

  2. We have two gilts and a boar, aged 12 weeks, available now, £50 each.

    We have a sow that will farrow in the next 48 hours and hers will be available in 10 weeks time. However, you should never count your piglets before they’re weaned!

    If you use the Contact Us form, you can send me an email directly.

    We in Aberdeenshire, Scotland by the way. I say that because we get a lot of message from people in the US, Canada and the south of England.
