A tiny piglet has been named Tetley – because he’s no bigger than a cup of tea.

A tiny piglet has been named Tetley at a Devon farm as he's no bigger than a cup of tea /Rex

Tetley was the smallest of a litter of eight Pennywell miniatures born to his mother, Poppy Two Socks, at Pennywell Farm, near Buckfastleigh in Devon.


UPDATE: Several people have asked me where they can get one of these, or a similar, pigs. Try at this site: http://royaldandie.com./

  1. We have miniature pigs here in the US that are actually smaller than the Pennywell pigs.
    Check out the Royal Dandies at Royaldandie.com.
    They are also teacup size when they are born and and can be shipped any where in the US.

  2. Hey Patty, we have a small, organic farm, and were interested in gradually acquiring a few various mini farm animals. We’d like to set up a bit of a petting zoo for our visitors to be able to pet less intimidating animals, and also to keep them out of our pastures and away from our standard sized production animals. We stumbled onto the sites about the Pennywell pigs, and then saw yours. Could you please send me contact info. about the pigs you were referring to in your post? Thanks.

  3. Patty –

    I’m interested in these pigs – could they live in a house with a couple of friendly dogs? Can they be potty trained?

    Thanks for any info you could send me!

  11. I was just wondering how much would one of these cost? Where can you get one?

  12. I own two of the pennywell pet pigs. There is a 2 year waiting list to get one and the list has now closed as they have had millions of people trying to get them. They are very cute but not as easy as people think. Ours live in the house and garden. They have chewed everything. They male has wet everywhere wrecking the laminated floor. All they think about is food and how to get it or sleep. Saying that we have had them 3 weeks and love them to bits.

  13. I was reasearching these pigs, and the ones for sale in the US are 3K. I don’t know anyone that can afford one.

  14. The price of these pigs is RIDICULOUS! Why must they cost so much? I really want one and can’t afford one because I am a normal person and don’t have a money tree in my backyard. Geez! They are so cute and I would love to own one. Does anyone know where to get one at a less expensive price? Please?

  15. I would love to by a small, very healthy, house pig. But the price is out rageous! If there are any small pigs that aren’t wanted for an outrageous price please cintact me.
