Pig Barn

Tour the Fair

The Pig Barn, one of the most popular venues at the Topsfield Fair, houses two sows and numerous piglets from the Colby Farm. Older piglets can be found in the Farmyard tent area.

Various breeds of swine are brought in for display each year. This is to raise public awareness that not all pigs are white in color. You may see red, black, white, or a combination of all these colors.

Don't miss out on these intelligent, adorable and feisty farm animals. They are guaranteed to bring a smile to fairgoers of all ages.
