In 1990, Susan purchased a breeding pair of potbellied pigs as a gift for her husband, Richard. Today her policy is to never allow a pig to be given as a gift! Today she spends her energy in helping others find new homes for their pigs and helping pigs find the right home for their well-being and happiness.
Susan is the owner & operator of Ross Mill Farm & Piggy Camp, a full service boarding facility exclusively catering to pet pigs and a foster home for PigPlacementNetwork.org.
Susan co-founded Pig Placement Network and currently serves as President. She was a founding board member and past president of North American Potbellied Pig Association; the founder and past president of Delaware Valley Potbellied Pig Association; Show Chairperson for 8 Potbellied Pig Shows; a NAPPA certified Potbellied Pig Show judge and founding member of NAPPA Ethics Committee. She has been the guest speaker at numerous potbellied pig conferences, vet tech colleges and U of PA Veterinary School.
