Tamworth pigs

Tamworth pigs at Shugborough

We have recently welcomed six Tamworth piglets from Stoneymoor Tamworths.

Our farm team have worked hard to make sure that these little piglets have the highest quality of life here at Shugborough.

We have refurbished their hoggeries to include heat lamps to regulate the temperature and carried out biosecurity measures to keep them as safe as possible. Can you spot the toys that they have? This is to keep them stimulated and happy.


Tamworth pigs are a heritage breed local to Staffordshire. Their current conservation status is vulnerable, meaning that the work we are doing to look after these special breeds is crucial.

When you visit us to say hello to these piglets, you are directly supporting their care.
