Kew Little Pigs is an award nominated miniature pig farm nestled in the historical market town town of Old Amersham, Buckimghamshire. Our business has grown from true love and passion for animals.
Due to the effects of Covid-19 our once thriving business is becoming a great concern for us.
The majority of our income comes from our visitors, bookings and private events.
Closing our doors to the public over 3 weeks ago has left us in a very worrying financial situation, especially as we are in limbo with over 50 pigs and piglets to care for.
Trying to remain as humble as possible in these times of hardship, we switched our attention to upselling our merchandise, designing activity packs and reducing our adoptions by 50% .
Sadly we do not have any more resources and with the births of our planned spring litters, we have growing concern for our beloved animals.
The upkeep of our pigs costs us in excess of £1000 every month, this coupled with our monthly business outgoings has left us uncertain about the
future of our beloved Kew Little Pigs.
We are now getting to a stage where we need to reach out and ask for some support.
We know we have many loving and loyal supporters who have been so amazing to us in recents weeks. They have purchased adoptions and merchandise - which at the moment is what is feeding our animals. We cannot thank you enough for the support!
We have been asked by a few supporters to create a go fund me page as a way they could give small amounts to help out - so 'Go Feed Me' is here! Any small donation would help in a big way - it would relieve us of the high pressure and stress at the moment trying to find funds - meaning we can focus more on the care of our animals - including our wonderful newborns!
To give you some perspective into a week on the farm, we use:
14 bags of 20kg pot bellied pig feed per week
Half a bag of goat feed per week
A quarter of a bag of chicken feed per week
7 bales of hay per week
3 bales of straw per week
£15 - will buy a bag of feed
£10 - will buy seasonal fruit and veg
£5 - will buy lots of yummy carrots
£2 will buy a pig a bunch of banana
Any donation given will be hugely appreciated by us and most importantly our pigs!
Lots of love
The KLP team & animals!
