Pig Party Supplies, Pig Party Favors, Pig Decorations

Pig party supplies are a great way to bring the barn home to your party without all of the smell. That’s right! We guarantee that all our pig party tableware, pig decorations, pig party favors and other fun pig stuff do not in any way smell like a barn. Would our competitors make this same guarantee? Somehow, I doubt it, and that’s probably because they’ve all got a barn-smelling problem in their warehouses. That’s right, I said it. Many of our competitors (who shall remain nameless) have barn smelling issues. We do not. Now, what was I saying? Oh yeah, have a great time at your pig themed event with the help of our colorful and fantastic pig party supplies!

The Skinny on the Pig

A pig is considered to be a pig if it’s a domestic (i.e. farm) pig, a wild boar, or a number of other wild family members. Pigs are considered to be very smart and very social animals. Their diet consists of meat and vegetables making them omnivores, and with about a billion of them in the world, they are one of the most numerous bigger animals in the world.

The History of the Domestic Pig

Pigs have been domesticated for many centuries. There are records of wild boar management dating back over 10,000 years to New Guinea. Around this same time, remains of pigs have been found on the island of Cyprus which suggests they were brought to the island as livestock. Ancient China had indications of pig domestication.

In India, pigs have been domesticated for a long time as well. In fact (get ready to get grossed out), pigs in that region have been used for pig toilets (barf!) up until the present day. That’s right! Pigs, mostly in Goa, are used to eat human feces (vomit!) that travel from latrines directly to the pigs’ trough (barf!). This practice is thankfully waning in popularity with the increased use of sewage systems and due to health concerns. Centuries later, pigs eventually were brought from Europe to North America by Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto and others.

What Do Pigs Eat?

We might better ask the question “What don’t pigs eat?” As we said before, pigs are omnivores. When not on the farm or in domestic situations, they will mostly forage for leaves, fruits, roots, grasses, flowers and other vegetation. On the farm, pigs are generally fed corn meal with additional vitamins added to their diets.
