Ginnie’s Piglets Are Here

Yesterday at award winning farm, Odds Farm Park, Ginnie the Berkshire sow gave birth to an adorable litter of piglets and some visitors were lucky to see them born!  Dad is a Tamworth boar Squidgey and all the livestock team are very happy as this is his first litter as a new dad.

Visitors to the popular children’s farm will be interested to learn that Berkshire Pigs are rrumoured to have been discovered by Oliver Cromwell’s army over 300 years ago. The first recorded pig was a boar called “The Ace of Spades” which was owned by Queen Victoria. The breed has continued to be a firm favourite with the Royal Family, who for years kept a large Berkshire herd at Windsor Castle.

As it’s Spring, visitors to the family farm can expect to meet many more new arrivals!  From more piglets to lambs and kid goats there’s plenty to meet!  Combined with the Daily Animal Activity and Demonstration Programme – including the return of Goat Bottle Feeding, there’s so much to do!

Odds Farm Park is easily reached from Uxbridge, Harrow, Hillingdon, Ruislip, Hayes and Ealing.  For more information, directions and prices visit the family days out website

The Odds Farm Park staff were pleasantly surprised on Monday morning (16 November) when they found Saddleback pig Snoopy had just given birth to a healthy litter of cute piglets at this kids farm.

For mum Snoopy, this was her 3rd and for dad Tucker the Tamworth boar this was his second litter of adorable piglets for children to see on a day out. Extremely cute, the piglets have got some of the distinctive Saddleback markings, combined with some Tamworth features. The new arrivals can currently be seen in the pig sty near the Tea Room entrance.

Children on a day out at Odds Farm Park can also get really close to fully grown pigs in the daily children’s activity, Piggies Tea Time, where children can help the farmer feed the pigs.

Odds Farm Park is a childrens farm, easily reached from North London, West London, Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. For more information to plan a day out, visitors should visit
