Below are comments new owners have made about their PIGLETS from Paradise, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR KEEPING IN TOUCH:)
Xander just had his first check up. She said he is in great health and is one of the only true miniature pigs she has ever seen. He is 16.5 lbs and doing great on his harness!
Best, Katie Karner
*****Yesterday was one year since Patches joined our family. He is the absolute sweetest and boy does he love to snuggle. He used to sleep in a dog bed but prefers under blankets on the couch now! Hope all is well!! Just wanted to let you know how great he's doing!!! Tiffany Aaron
******Hi Kristy, Just got back from Beakers first vet appointment and I wanted to let you know that he's doing great! The vet said he's very healthy and that he's one of the smallest piglets she's ever seen. (She basically was telling me that I didn't get scammed😂 but obviously I already knew that). 😉She told me several instances that people brought in their "mini pigs" that were the same age as Beaker BUT were quite LARGER. 😳 Anyway, the little booger got 2 shots and is NOT a happy camper right now. But I just love that little guy so much!!!! He only weighs 4 pounds and 15 ounces!!! 🐷 already taught him how to sit and spin around in a circle. It's so funny seeing such a little animal learn so quickly. Harness training is NOT going well. But he has a little collar on and is great on the leash with just the collar. He loves his house and is resting now. It's cold and rainy here but he's all snuggled up in his little house!
I hope all is well. I have been keeping up with your farm through your website, and all your babies are sooooo cute. I purchased little Bentley from you back in July of 2013. He was one of Ms. Meagon and Sir Wilbur's babies. Just wanted to give you an update and some pictures of him. He is almost 3 years old now and he is wonderful. We love him so much! He is the sweetest pig ever! He has a great personality and makes everyone laugh with his attitude. He is still small in the pig world. He eats very well. Since getting him we have rescued two female mini pigs. They all live together and get along pretty well (even though one of the girls has a slight attitude most of the time) lol. Bentley just ignores her. I try not to show favoritism towards him, but it's hard not to. He loves to give kisses and get hugs. He is just so sweet. I think of you often and still appreciate all of the time you spent with me when I came to pick him up from you. It was because of that and all of your advice that helped me decide to have a pig in my home! Yes, he lives inside my home! I tell everyone I will only have pigs for pets from now on. If you ever need a reference feel free to use me. Thanks again.
***Hi from Albert Einswine! Prt/ol male number 2. Hi, I had my first birthday this weekend, yes I know it's on the fifteenth, but we celebrated a little early. My mom had a special cake made for me that was piggy friendly, and made A chocolate one for my human friends, and then we all went out on the town! One of the local restaurants paid me to make a birthday appearance, just like any star. I wish my mom could send you better pictures, but I just can't be still! They are always blurry. Anyway, I am very busy, I have an appearance at the local school on Friday, and another at the nearby hospice after that. I like helping everyone!
***Thanks Stacy for this wonderful update on Albert:)
***Hey Kristy, Wilbur is great! He is already chasing me around and using his litter box, it's amazing. I haven't even taught him and he goes right in and does his buisness. He slept with me last night all through the night, no problems! He woke up in the morning I put him in his piggy pin and he went to use the litter box. My mom is so amazed already. He is so smart! He loves to be under the blankets and LOVES his blue teddy bear, he licks it and drags it around :) He is SOOO CUTE! I knew he was going to be cute but not this cute!!! My animals love him and for some reason he is not scared of them at all! He follows them around :) This morning I put him in the backyard and he was running around the grass and started to roll in it hahaha, so cute. He brings me to tears already. He is beautiful! His eyes are so precious and when he sleeps I love to touch his little feet. Everything about his is perfect, his nose is the CUTTEST. He walkes over to me and rubs his nose on my leg its so funny. He is going to be the greatest pet. I love him sooooo much! Thank you for everything you have done. This was all a breeze and everything went smoothly. I will write you a letter and send it to you tomorrow so you can post it on your website. I will also get on facebook and leave the best comment! I will be sending you lots of photos. Thank you -Chloee
* Albert Einswine:
Albert is now eight months old, and smart as a whip! He does sit and beg and dance, so funny! Some of the restaurants now brag that he is a customer to lure people in. You can't help but love him. I meet other people occasionally who have purchased mini pigs and given them up, their jaws drop when I tell them he is eight months old, apparently their pigs were much larger at that age, but he is chubby and happy, just little. One of the funniest things, I swear he speaks English, and I have to get video, he very clearly says Mama, and will clearly yell "Oh, no!" When he is annoyed, then everyone laughs and starts saying "Oh no!" They all understand it and can't believe it. He is so amazing, I can't imagine my life without him now, he is amazing. Guess you can buy love, at least pig love, and it is great!!!
*Our little boy Cupid We brought him home 1 week ago. I can't believe how good he is and how smart these little piggy are. I was prepared for a struggle and hes been perfect! He's pretty much potty trained outside, hasn't had an accident or used the litter box for the last 5 days. He caught on very quick to potty outside and you get a cherrio! Sleeps all night w/o a peep.. Just love him
I would like to thank you for being so caring in regards to my darling pig, Chanel. I think I had told you how picky I was when choosing a breeder. Once I initially spoke with you on the phone, I knew you were an individual who truly cares for her animals.
Thank you so much,
*Well, Mumford had his 6th month birthday a few weeks ago and he is still the joy of our life!!
*Just wanted to update you on Albert Einswine (prt/ol male2). He is doing great, and of the many animals on our homestead, he is my favorite! (sorry, dog). He is so funny and smart, and he is a real star in our town. He's already been on the tv and in the newspaper! He is my day long companion every day, and goes everywhere with me. The local stores and restaurants have come to see how clean and well behaved he is, and are welcoming to him! (They also realize he brings in business when he is there!) He is worth every penny he cost and has really added to my life. Pigs rule! Stacey
My name is Maggie Peterson, I am Cassie Ciresi’s friend in Ohio that purchased your male MW#4, now known as Haden James Peterson! I just wanted to share some pictures with you and tell you what a pleasure he is. Haden is healthy and extremely energetic! He loves to run around the yard and chew on sticks. When he’s not curiously wandering and getting into anything he can, his favorite thing to do is cuddle with his mommy under blankets. His plush football is his favorite toy, and he loves his Cleveland Browns’ blanket! I can already see that he may be as big of a Browns fan as his mom! He is definitely a mama’s boy… he is willing to be held by me at ANY point in time, and follows me everywhere I go. He is also an incredibly picky eater?! He doesn’t like many veggies at all.. his pig feed is definitely his favorite, aside from rice milk! He LOVES warm rice milk, he has a half of a cup every night before his final trip outside to potty. Please make sure to see the attachments and thanks for providing me with the best companion anyone could ask for!
Maggie and Haden Peterson
*This little guy is Awesome ! we have already bonded ! After bringing him home we lay in the office, after a while he came to me , got in my lap and went to sleep ! He is having a nap now ! Seems very happy. Thank you Kristy , and may GOD BLESS YOU.
I promise that I won't bombard you with too many more pictures! He sleeps with his tongue out (cutest thing I've ever seen). He loves his harness. Shane Phillips

Hey, Sorry its taken so long. Kids got sick and its been crazy! Gordy is doing awesome! He loves me. He just follows me around the shop and at the house. He'll get in my lap and sleep for awhile. So sweet! He's still not liking the idea of me picking him up. So when I do, its very quick. Usually just to get him up the step. I put a kitty harness on him today, thought I might try the whole leash thing. Is that a good idea?? I ordered food from the website you sent me like the day before! I had found it before but it said shipping took awhile so I ended up calling them and we got it worked out. It wasnt supposed to be here till Monday but I got it Friday which was perfect! Amanda
Bently is doing great and family took a nap together yesterday.....he is eating and is potty trained already.....Thanks so much
ohhh if she could talk she would tell you she is THE happiest pig ever!! She has 9 bros and sis's and they all love each other. She has 2 mommies, and a daddy. My bf fell in love :) She get s to graze free w the 2 beautiful mini horses (my 2.5 yr old mare just lost her front tooth and looks like a hillbilly ha ha) they say it's her baby toof :B. She is still inside except for grazing. She has accidents, but that is because of the chihuahua who has peed inside and she smells it. But mostly she uses her litter box. Our house is 4200 sq ft so it's hard for her to probably remember to go find the litter box too. She never poops in the litter box in her pen! SHe doesn't want to have to smell that! ha ha. She is fantastic. My daughter and I just dote on her, we can just watch her for hours. It's similar to having a 2 yr old! She is soo smart! And only 6 months old...wow. I think the singing and the laughing are the best. And when she gets cranky about 7:00, she walks around going weeeeep hooooonk! It's super high pitched and then super low. We mimic her and then she smiles and mimics back..tooo funny. I really gotta make some u tube videos. She is a celebrity at the local starbucks. She even went for a ride in my 65 vette last weekend ;) She tells me which station she likes. She is a VIP very important PIG!! Love her :D
*Kristy, I just took this pic of the girls snuggling together :) This spot on the couch is there next to favorite spot on the planet !!!! Favorite spot is in our bed watching tv with us :) I still make them sleep in there own beds though just in case we had to ever be away from them it maybe wouldn't stress them as much ! I look at your new piggies constantly ! You have to most beautiful babies in the world !!! Hope you and Jock are doing well ! Love, Robynn
*We are doing great. He is a total snuggle bug. He like music too. He sits and watches and listens to my son practice his piano. Actually, I did a little experiment and he will listen to anyone sit and play the piano. It is the cutest thing and really appropriate because we are a musical family. He has had several rounds of visitors now and is doing well. He will even climb in their laps after a few minutes. He is trying to jump on the couch and sit with me the last two days. He isn't near big enough to get up but at least we know he wants up... LOL We think he tried to comfort one of us this week when there was a crying episode. He is very sensitive and super affectionate. My husband thinks he is the coolest pet ever. His words...
*Just wanted to give you an update. So happy with our little man!
*Hi, Kristy! We are all doing great! Daisy is settling in nicely and has become the center of everyone's attention :) Attached is a picture of her trying to get into the drawer below the washing machine.... That's where I keep the Cheerios - her absolute favorite treat!! I hope all is well with you and Jock and the farm. Take care Aimee *Soooo cute! My son plays the guitar and she walks around singing along! Then me and my daughter were laughing really hard, and she laughs along! It is just too funny. We really love her. SO smart. And only 9 weeks old? wow.
*Hi! Just letting you know petunia is fitting right in at the mini farm! Litter box trained in one day! Wow such a cutie. Thanks :)
*Thank you so much for our newest addition, Blue. He is doing great. He has been playing with his new brothers. Here are a few pictures from the last few days.
Also, thank you for the website links.
Thanks again for everything, Danielle and Justin
I officially bought the best pig ever Right now he is sleeping in my bed. He is already potty trained. And he follows me around the house. I love him! Thank you so much
*she is doing great. has yet to have a single accident on the floor which is just amazing to me that she has picked up on it so quickly. she has begun to warm up to us all. she cuddles with my girls when they lay on the floor with her and she just loves her little pink princess bed. we are all just so madly in love with her already.
i will def keep in touch. and i will send some pics soon. we have named her bella. today we are introducing the harness and leash. she squealed quite a bit putting it on but other than that so far so good. she has been warming up to us pretty quickly. she has started following me all over the house today and even crawled into my lap to take a nap. just too precious!!! Julie
Thought you might like this. I go into wake James this morning and he is not in bed. So I go to turn on the light for Jumpers room and open the door. There is James and Jumper curled up asleep. James says sleeping with him is the only way to keep him quiet and happy. So cute. Sorry I was not able to get a picture.Thanks again!Barbra
Just wanted to let you know we made big progress today, she is letting me pet her from head to tail and when I pull my hand away she chases it :) she is a big sweetie and we are so happy with her :) *Hi Kristy!
Pippa is doing great! She lets everyone in the family pet her without getting scared, and Sunday we even had friends stop by, and she let them pet her as well J We put her little harness and leash on her 2 times for a short period so she could get used to it. Once inside the house to wander around, and outside yesterday. She loves to explore! She also really loves to cuddle with me, she will jump in my lap and just cuddle down. So cute! Oh and yesterday she started using her litter box! Yeah!! You were right, it is amazing the difference in her in just a short period of time!
Look who has taken up residence with me on the couch :) She squeals like she is on fire if anyone tries to take her from me (lol) And Chloe Black Beauty Madison will only let my husband or daughter hold ! Both girl pottied Outside this morning !! Chloe did not like the harness and Zoe let me put hers on while she ate ! They loved being outside ! Eating is not an issue :) we gave them water as soon as we got home last night and they were rooting everywhere looking for food so we gave them a small amount and they went right to sleep :) I'll update you and call later ! Love, Robynn
*Kristy We just put the girls to bed and it has been an interesting day :) Zoe Seck has already caught on to potty training and hasn't used the bathroom inside all day, Chole Black Beauty however is having trouble holding it until she can get outside. She does good but as soon as the front door opens she starts dribbling .LOL Zoe is very clingy with me and squeals everytime I put her down or walk to another room and Chloe is very content to lay in her bed and watch TV for hours unless one of us goes into the kitchen, then she runs wide open hoping to get a treat. She's already learned that my hubby is the treat man and she keeps a good eye on him. I'll chat with you tomorrow. Robynn
I love them :) I suppose I had "over read" and expected two little demons that would need weeks to settle in, but they have been very easy compared to the "wild animals" that we have rescued. Of course they are still skittish but if we are in the floor then they are in our laps. They beg and beg for us to get in the floor if we are on the couches. They have made it very plain that they don't want up on the couch but instead they want us on the floor :) and that's fine until they get more trusting about being picked up. Zoe Speck never stops talking unless she is asleep and Chloe Beauty never talks unless she wants something and then she has this VERY deep voice that is hilarious and sounds like a bull horn. I think Zoe Speck would have been lost without Chloe Beauty because every night Chloe always gets in bed first and then Zoe creeps in beside her and they sleep all night like little spoons and never wake up. So far no "accidents" for 3 days. Zoe runs to the door and squeals like she's on fire when she has to "go" and then Chloe strolls over to see what all the commotion is about and goes out also. They do have a very rambunctious side during the day and get put in "time out" for biting each other (time out is separate playpens) for about 10 minutes and then we put them back in the floor and it usually stops the fighting for about an hour and then they go at it again. It's usually horse play that gets outta hand and then they start ultimate fighting. We are very happy with our new additions and have gotten so attached to them already.
They do have plenty toys but they arent very interested in them ! They had rather play with us or each other :) Trent built them outside playpens side by side. 10'x4' each and they run it constantly when out side. They designated the last foot on the common corner as the potty area and the opposite corners as the rooting area. Although Chloe Beauty is much bigger, it is obvious that Zoe Speck is the lead pig. She was the first to potty train, sit for treats and venture down the hallway to check out where Katie's room was and beg to get on the bed with her :) .... Chloe Beauty is always skittish and lets Zoe Speck check to make sure it's safe before she tries it. Zoe Speck has taken to her harness much, much easier than Chloe Beauty. Chloe is always trying to back out of it or take it off and sometimes Zoe tries to help her out ....lol I do let them nap together during the day but they have separate play yards at night for sleeping because I don't want them bonding with each other and not us ! Right???? I think that was what you suggested???? anything to her because she was in her playful mood and wasn't growling or squealing. Robynn *She is such a ham ....lol I swear sometimes she sounds just like a baby whining when she wants something. They have both brought such joy to our lives already :) .. They are both a little skittish still but NOTHING like the first couple of days. Usually every evening we have been getting down in the floor with them an playing but they haven't wanted anything at all to do with being picked up. Every time we attempted to pick them up they would squeeeeeeeaaaaal like we were taking them to the barbecue pit.. Sooo last night I looked a Zoe and I said, "little girl, you can squeal all you want but i will not put you down until you stop". So I picked her up and she squealed and fought ...... and I snuggled her up close and she squealed and fought and I snuggled her up close and she squealed (stopped the fighting) and then I told her the story of the two little pigs that went to Kentucky about 5 times and after what seemed like an hour but actually was about 3 minutes. she quit squealing and then I rubbed her tummy and scratched under her arms and put her down. Tonight we had a late supper because we were getting things done on the farm before it rained and so instead of getting in the floor we sat on the couch and let the girls play in the floor with there toys and blankets. They started begging for treats but we ignored them and all of a sudden.... Chloe jumped up on the coffee table and then on the couch to get to her treats that were on the back of the couch..... we were in shock... it's a good 18 inches off the floor to get on the coffee table.... so poor little Zoe whined and whined and then she realized that she could climb on our granddaughters little chair, then the table and then the couch.... soooo needless to say after doing it once, it happened about 100 more times :) I tried to get a video of it. I send it if I can. Talk to ya later, Robynn
