Jimmy Dean

Gentle Giant

Juliana Pig

Jimmy Dean is the biggest and most gentle pig at Shepperly Farm. He might be a pig, but sometimes he behaves more like a dog! When it's snack time, if you call Jimmy's name, he will come running for snacks no matter where you are! He even knows how to shake- except he does it with his nose. He may be large and in charge, but don't let his size make you nervous. There is no sweeter pig anywhere!
