Please do not feed the pigs

Recently several of our pigs have become ill from incorrect food being fed to them. This has caused us a lot of worry as we work tirelessly to ensure all our pigs are happy and healthy. They have a balanced diet, carefully created and monitored by Conservation Pigs and our veterinary surgeon to ensure the health of our herd while they are out conserving woodlands.

Pigs to start work in Wigan!

Conservation Pigs will be providing woodland grazing services to Wigan Leisure Culture Trust (WLCT) at two sites within Wigan. Haigh Hall Country Park and Borsdane Wood will see our four legged workforce tackle Brambles, Rhododendron, Nettles and more as part of the extensive works already conducted by WLCT in restoring and improving the woodlands for future generations. The pigs will start grazing in May and will cover selected problem areas over the coming months.
