Micro Pigs

Micro or mini pigs are real pigs – but in miniature. When born they will fit into a tea cup and when full grown size they are around the size of a spaniel – but chunkier.

We have 2 breeding pairs at Rushmoor and they will each have a litter during the course of the year – the litter size ranges from 6-10. Within 24 hours of birth they have ventured out of their straw to investigate their surroundings – and within a week they have decided to explore the park.

Watch out for them racing round chasing feathers or each other and generally squealing all the way home – in the best nursery rhyme tradition!

We do sell the piglets subject to the prospective purchasers being able to demonstrate they have appropriate housing and general facilities to care for the pigs – we are happy to give advice and guidance where necessary – please contact us if you would like to know more and we will send you a fact and information sheet so you can register your interest.

Hoot with owls and hunt with hawks..

You can walk past the weathering lawn where the hawks and redtails will be sat watching you watching them – this is an opportunity for them to enjoy the summer weather and allows them to preen their feathers ready for flight and assists in preventing water logging.

Handling and flying demonstrations daily where the audience is as involved as the falconers – from the perfectly child sized booboks to Orrie the Eagle Owl – fun and informative.

Tea and cake and more…

Enjoy freshly prepared and locally sourced produce in our 5 star tea room.

A good choice of hot and cold snacks for all age ranges along with Little Snacks for Little People and of course Home Made Cakes and big Lincolnshire all day breakfasts - outside we have a large picnic area and tables for enjoying your picnic lunch "al fresco" (the tables in the tea room are reserved for visitors buying and eating food from the tea room kitchen).
