A kune kune pig on the farm at Mesmear, Polzeath


Enjoy the friendly animals

We dare you to come to Mesmear and not go away without missing our pigs! From Famous Boris’ smile …..(he was featured at Twickenham don’t you know!) , Ginger Gary’s long eye lashes, Priscilla’s amazing scent for all things food related to our beloved (slightly odd) Frankie with one eye, flappy ears and as deaf as a post……….we have not known a guest leave without knowing all their names and boasting that they have managed to topple a pig just by tickling it.

As far as our feathered friends and concerned , Vicki keeps a regimented cluster of hens which are ever so friendly. We encourage children to go in and collect eggs for their breakfast. An eggselent addition to every farm holiday.
