Tulip (Tu-Tu) was born on a factory farm in NW Illinois. Tulip is a traditional farm pig and a Meishan mix– a breed from China. Due to her slow growth, Tulip, along with 97 other piglets, were slated to be killed at just a few weeks old. Fortunately, a caring group of people stepped in and saved the piglets.
Tulip came to PEAK in December 2014. When she arrived she was very depressed and scared. After a short time, she was introduced to another pig, Lucy, who since has been her very best friend. The two have such a close bond. Now, their herd has grown to include Sue and Hank. Tulip is one of the most gentle and peaceful beings we have ever met. She lives for a good belly rub!
