Young animal lovers have a chance to help at an Amersham pig farm during the summer holidays.

Kew Little Pigs has launched a summer holiday experience so that youngsters can find out what all the fuss is about.

The experience, which is especially for children aged between nine and 16, the children learn how to be a pig keeper by helping with farm tasks and getting their hands mucky.

As a cherry on top, the day will end with piggy playtime, ice cream and a goodie bag to take home.

Olivia Mikhail, owner of Kew Little Pigs, said: "During the pandemic we experienced a record interest in people wanting to adopt a pig, and we always ensure that the homes they are going to are loving and suitable.

"These children's events instil a love and respect for animals at an early age, and the youngsters go home with a greater knowledge of the responsibility, fulfilment and fun that caring for a pig brings.

"We can't wait for the children's pig keeper days as they are always one of the highlights of our year, and seeing the next generation of animal lovers experiencing a day with our pigs is wonderfully rewarding."
