Placing a Deposit-
How does a deposit work?
If you are awaiting a baby to be born:
According to the order you placed the deposit is how you pick your baby (Ex: if you are first to place a deposit on our August litter, you will have first choice to pick out your piglet… if you are second to place a deposit on our August litter, you would have second choice..and so on). You are welcome to contact us before placing a deposit to ask where on the waiting list you would be.
If all babies are chosen for one litter, your deposit will be moved to the next litter. It helps to let us know your choice of color and sex in order to get the piglet you desire.
We only allow 4 deposits per litter before moving your deposit to the next expecting momma. Our mommas are very small full grown and do not have very many babies. Most have 4-6 piglets per litter, but to prevent too many deposits, we stop at 4 deposits and contact you if momma has more.
After my deposit is placed:
The deposit is $250. The remaining balance is due at time of pick up if you are driving into our farm. If you are flying your baby, the remaining balance including the flight amount is due one week prior to your piglet flying home in order for us to book all flights, acquire your baby’s crate, and get all necessary documents needed to travel. We will take care of all of this for you.
When my litter is born:
We allow 3-14 days for the momma and piglets to become acclimated to each other before we ask you to make a decision on which baby (according to your order in deposit) you choose.
We ask that you take no more than 24 hours to decide if you want to pass on a baby or wait until another litter to allow the next family the ability to choose.
If you are local, you are welcome to come out to our farm to pick out your baby in person.
Can I transfer my deposit?
You may transfer your deposit one time IF it is within one week of placing the initial deposit. This allows us proper time to screen potential families for a new home for your baby. You will be required to place an additional $275 deposit that comes out of your balance owed on your next baby to ensure commitment to your new baby.
All deposits are NON REFUNDABLE and you ARE responsible for checking to ensure you are cleared to own a mini pig in your area prior to placing your deposit. We do not refund deposits for any reason.
