Pink Pig

Our 'Rustic Cottage'

Open Monday - Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (No Sunday events)

Perhaps the most famous building at Squire Valleevue Farm is the Pink Pig, which served as a pig sty during previous days. Flora Stone Mather College later converted the building into a meeting facility and the Pink Pig still has a strong link to Mather College and its alumnae.

Remnants of the pig sty remain, such as two little pig doors that are sealed but still visible. One pig door was removed to add a stone fireplace. A wooden hutch features numerous wooden and ceramic pigs. The kitchen displays several pig-shaped cutting boards that farm workers made from the original wooden boards.

Reservations are permitted for educational usage only. No private event reservations permitted.
