Pumpkins for Piggies

Everyone loves to decorate for fall with pumpkins and straw bales, but what can you do with them after fall ends?

Donate them to Hooves & Feathers for our piggies!

Pigs love to eat pumpkins and they are a very good source of vitamins and minerals for them. You can donate any and all pumpkins or decorative squash as long as they have not been painted.

Winter is coming! Our piggies will also need lots of straw to cuddle down in and stay warm. So please consider donating your decorative bales of straw.

All you need to do is leave your donation at our front gate with a note containing your name, phone number, and mailing address. We want to make sure that you receive a thank you from all our piggies.
