Hi I know its a long shot.
We are trying to raise £10,000 to buy a small parcel of land for out rare breed pigs and other animals.
We are not a charity. We just care
We are looking at getting around 2 acres of agricultural land to secure a permanent home for our animals where we can build them proper shelters and welfare units
We have taken in rescue pigs and retired breeding sows and offer them them a home for life to see out their days.
Also we plan to setup a rare breed breeding program to build the numbers of those breeds that are in danger of being lost.
We currently have a home for them but we do not know how long it will be available to us.
We make very little from what we do so loans and mortgages are not an option.
We do sell the occasional meat products from a few pigs we breed for this purpose.
This just covers the feed bills.
So any help we could get would go a long way to making some piggy's very happy
A donation of land would also be most welcome.
