Animal Sales Policy

By choosing to place a deposit for one of our animals you are signalling your acceptance of our sales policy.

  1. To be placed on our waitlist for piglets, please email us with what you are looking for.
  2. DEPOSITS OF HALF PRICE ARE DUE when you reserve an animal. The pick of the litter order will be done in the order deposits are received. These deposits are non-refundable except in extenuating circumstances.
  3. As the breeder, we reserve the right to retain any piglet regardless of reservations and the right to refuse the sale of a pig or piglet to anyone, for any reason, at any point in the transaction, in which case your deposit will be refunded.
  4. Piglets must be picked up no later than 10 days after they are weaned and ready to go. At Heritage Hill Farm this is about 8 to 12 weeks in order to ensure they have the most vigorous and healthy start to life. If piglets are not picked up or arrangements made after 10 days of an agreed-upon date, we will consider your mind changed and that piglet will be put back up for sale.
  5. FULL PAYMENT is due before the animal leaves the property. If you wish to pay at the time of pick-up, we ask you to please bring cash or send an e-transfer beforehand, we do not accept personal cheques.
  6. Please ensure you bring appropriate transportation for your animals. A crate with fresh, dry and clean bedding is the best option.
  7. For biosecurity, we notify PigTRACE of any movement of breeding animals.  If you are purchasing breeding stock and do not already have a BC Premise ID or alternative ID from another province, please register for one and provide us with your ID prior to the animals leaving our farm.
  8. AIR DELIVERY: We are able to ship to major airports via WestJet out of the Nanaimo, BC airport (YCD). Airfare (approximately $350-450 throughout Canada) and crates used to ship must be purchased at the buyer’s expense.
  9. GROUND DELIVERY: We are able to travel up to 5 hours from Cobble Hill, BC to deliver by ground. Free delivery is offered within 1 hour of Cobble Hill, beyond this, please be prepared to pay a delivery fee to help cover our fuel. Alternate third-party ground transportation from an experienced livestock transporter may be arranged by the buyer at the buyer’s expense.
  10. Our piglets/pigs are guaranteed to be healthy when they leave our farm but because we cannot control the stress of shipping and the animal’s management or environment after it leaves our care, we do not offer any further health guarantees or refunds. For bio-security reasons, we cannot have piglets/pigs return to our farm once they have left the property.
  11. For farm bio-security, we do not offer breeding or stud services and all local sales will be managed to prevent cross-contamination.
  12. All piglets/pigs will be registered with the AKPR, tagged, dewormed, pre-snuggled, and loved before they leave for their new homes.
  13. We vaccinate with Ivermectin, Circoflex, and MaGESTic 7 prior to any animal leaving our farm.
  14. Please be aware and knowledgeable about pigs/piglets before you purchase from us. As breeders, we will always welcome questions and concerns prior to purchase.
