Beacon Hill Children’s Farm has announced the names of three baby female pigs who are settling into their new forever home.
Petunia, Poppy and Punk moved to the farm a few weeks ago and are making their new forever home in the pig area.
“They are very excited about new faces and new things, but are also still timid and can sometimes get a little scared,” said Beacon Hill Children’s Farm organizers on their Facebook page today.
“They love to dig in the dirt, greet people by the fence and take long naps under the heat lamp,” is the report. “Being together is their happy and safe place — they always stay and snuggle very closely to each other.”
Visitors to the farm that is located in downtown Victoria at Beacon Hill Park can observe the pigs through a fence.
The farm is open daily now for the 2023 season, from 10 am to 4 pm, weather permitting.
