Micro pigs are much smaller than a standard farm pig and weigh 9oz, about the size of a tea cup when they are born.
At two years old they are fully grown and weigh in around 40-65 lb and are around knee height at 12-16in tall. They can live for up to 18 years, but make popular pets as they are low maintenance, quiet and surprisingly clean.
"Micro pigs make fantastic pets as they are very low maintenance. You don't have to take them for walks and they have very few health issues," said Mrs Croft, who runs Little Pig Farm in Christchurch, Cambridgeshire.
"They don't make much noise, they are easy to lavatory train and once they have bonded with you they are very loving.
"They are actually very clean and never mess in their bedding and are just so adorable.
"They are also highly intelligent and are the fourth most intelligent species after man, monkey and dolphin.
"They really are the perfect pets, I don't know why people haven't thought of them before."
Micro pigs are also good alternative pets for people with allergies.
