Where Pigs Fly
We are delighted and proud to partner with, and support, Where Pigs Fly Farm Sanctuary.
Where Pigs Fly Farm Sanctuary is a not for profit registered charity based in the Lower Hunter Valley in NSW. It is one of the most idyllic places we have ever been and don’t bother taking your phone, there’s no reception (not that we could find) and you’ll forget about technology as soon as you meet one of the many residents.
About Where Pigs Fly Farm Sanctuary
Debbie and Jamie from Where Pigs Fly have always been animal lovers with a lifelong mission to own an animal sanctuary and help as many animals as they can. So in 2014 they set about that purpose.
Where Pigs Fly focus on a simple philosophy to treat all animals with compassion and respect. Their mission is two fold. Firstly they rescue, and care for, farmed animals that have been abused or abandoned. In addition they focus on education and helping people understand where their food comes from. We highly recommend a visit to meet the team and the beautiful residents who now have a very happy home. They run Open Days every few months so book ahead (they always sell out) and pay a visit.
Meet the Animals
Currently Where Pigs Fly is home to many pigs, including Edna, Wilbur, Harriet and Jeremy, who is adorable, amongst others. You’ll also find Valentine, the cow, Dave and Gary, the sheep, Maggie the goat, Daffodil, the Shetland Pony, Zorro, the lamb, Spike the Turkey, Thomas the Duck and more. If you meet Thomas have a chat with him, he will follow you around and just talk at you. And once you meet the turkeys you’ll look at them in a whole new light! Affectionate, social and they really do just want to be around you. Many of the animals have been born or lived in terrible conditions. Edna, the pig, as an example spent 10+ years of her life in a cramped 3x3 pen in a Sydney suburb living in her own muck. She is a beautiful soul but can't walk properly because of the conditions she has lived in. Many of the others have similar, sad stories but the sanctuary provides them with forever homes and they are beautiful homes.
How is Flora & Fauna Supporting Where Pigs Fly
We absolutely love the work Debbie, Jamie and the team are doing and we are just a little bit passionate about animals so this partnership is about far more than just offering financial support. You will hear us talking about Where Pigs Fly and the animals whether that be on social media, our website or emails. Each month we will feature one of the animals.
'Where Pigs Fly' Picks
We have introduced something called 'Where Pigs Fly' Picks. For the first month it is Edna’s Picks and we will feature and talk about Edna's story. We also feature 10 products that are some of our bestsellers and 10% of each sale from these products goes to Where Pigs Fly. You'll find them all under New and Offers plus they have the WPF logo on them. So if something costs you $40, $4 goes to Where Pigs Fly. Each month we will change the product and the Featured Star of the Month so it could be Dave's Picks, or Maggies's etc! If you see a product with a Where Pigs Fly logo on the image 10% of what you pay goes to Where Pigs Fly. Shop these Picks.
Where Pigs Fly Merchandise
You can also buy Where Pigs Fly Merchandise via us. All of the money, less our bank fees, goes to Where Pigs Fly. We want to help Where Pigs Fly extend their reach, as much as we can, and raise more money for the sanctuary so they can rescue more animals. Shop Where Pigs Fly Goodies.
In addition we will be doing plenty of other things during the year whether that is donate prizes or some other exciting things. We have a fair bit of work in progress to support them.
