Additionally, I try to support local Iowa farmers by purchasing all of my gourds from small Iowa growers. Though sometimes I may have to order elsewhere as Iowa's growing season is fairly short and doesn't support some varities of gourds.

I may eventually do custom orders, but at this point I'm not taking any. I want my pigs to remain fun and personal and most of all, I want them to be who they are. No pig wants to be forced into a "shoe that's too tight." Every pig is different and they are exactly who they want to be when I bring out their personality. That said, if you REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY want a custom order, convo me &…

That said, if you REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY want a custom order, convo me & give me time and I can probably figure out a gourd that wants to be that critter. (I've got an elephant on the way that always wanted to be an elephant, I just didn't have the outlet...)

Is there any limit to the time I have on my hands?

I always ship either first class parcel post or priority shipping. If you want a tracking # please let me know ahead of time so I can add that to the shipping (N/C).

If your country or region isn't listed, please convo me and I'll get the rate for you.

PLEASE NOTE:
Some piggies or critters will have a coating of natural beeswax or parrifin wax on the inside to keep stubborn flakes in place. If you have a preference (if your child is allergic to honey or bees and you don't want the beeswax coating or if you don't mind a flake here or there and don't want any coating), please let me know. Some will also have a wood hardening agent added to the inside just to give brittle or soft shells a little umph. It also helps restrain the flakes.
