Please help us name our new gilts!

This is Pig One.

We have 5 new gilts ready to start producing piglets and they all need names.

A gilt is a young female pig. She is called a sow as soon as she has had her first litter of piglets. This gilt has been with us for about 10 months now. She arrived with her sister at the age of 10 weeks. Her breed is called Petran.

She has spent the last 10 months in our vegetable patch with the chickens whilst she has been growing. She is very affectionate and enjoys talking to you when you feed h er each day. A real character!

If you would like to come and visit her, please feel free. Bring your wellies and old clothes it is still very muddy down the fields at the moment.

If you already have a name please email us on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
