Erin Brinkley-Burgardt & Andrew Burgardt
Erin and Andrew jumped into the wonderful world of potbellied pig ownership in 2013, with no experience and after very little research. The journey has been amazing and incredibly rewarding, but they realized a much greater need for educational programs and community outreach for potbelly pigs and other animals considered to be livestock. The idea of Hog Haven Farm came to fruition early 2014, and the sanctuary became a reality summer of 2015.
