The muddiest animals on the farm!
Manglitza pig at Mary Arden's Farm
Shaggy and Peeps are our rare breed Mangalitza pigs. They have long curly brown hair and sometimes it’s hard to see them in the straw and mud. In spite of this, these extraordinary looking pigs are some of the most popular animals at the Farm.
Native to Hungary, they are similar to the breeds which Mary Arden would have known and which have since died out. Our pigs are hardy, docile and easily managed but expensive to look after as they do not graze. This means that food and bedding has to be provided for them all year round.
