Piggy Bank relies on financial support from the community to fulfill our mission. 

Your tax-deductible gift will help us:

      • maintain our farm sanctuary to grow and share heritage pig genetics

      • help farmers develop and maintain the essential capabilities, systems and processes to succeed in raising heritage breed pigs

      • educate the public about the important role of heritage pigs in sustainable agriculture and the provision of safe, humanely raised food.

In addition, supporters like you make it possible for us to help farmers who have lost their herds because of disaster or disease.
