|Peardrop - a Very happy Pig|
Meet Peardrop. Well meet Peardrop's nose!
Peardrop is one of our Kune Kune pigs and this, believe it or not she is a very happy Peardrop. Kune Kune pigs are a New Zealand Maori breed of pig who, unlike other breeds who will dig for roots rather than graze, actually prefer to graze grass. However in the winter we don't leave our pigs out as there is not enough grass for them to eat and their feet quickly make a muddy mess of the fields. (Large foot to body weight ratio!)

Kune Kune's are also one of the friendliest breeds of pigs around and they love being made a fuss of. They love nothing more than have a back scratch or a tummy tickle! It's great that our guests can get so close to these animals and makes for some very "Magic Moments"!
