Farmville 2 Pig Pen Guide

Pig Pen


A Pig Pen is a Building in FarmVille 2. The player can store Prized Pigs inside. After placing the Pig Pen,

Building materials needed for completion

  • 10 Rich Muds

  • 10 Pig Chimes

  • 10 Pig Planks

4 Neighbors will be needed to finish “building” your Pig Pen.

The Pig Pen can store up to 12 Prized Pigs and halves the amount of Feed needed to feed them. It increases your feed capacity by 35. The Prized Pigs inside this Building will not count toward your Animal Population. 6 Speed-Feeds are needed to instantly harvest it again, or you will have to wait 18 hours.​

Using the Pig Pen:

Inside the Pig Pen, you will see placements that you can fill with Prized Pigs.

Adding & Removing Pigs:

To add Prized Pigs in the Pen, check the “Auto Fill” box and click on the green “Add Prized Pigs” button. All of your Prized Pigs will automatically scoot into the Pen!

 To remove a Prized Pig from the Pen, open the main menu and click on the red “–“ (minus symbol) box on the bottom left hand corner of the placement slot (see below: A).

The Pigs cards have symbols on them to indicate different things:


A. Minus Symbol: Remove Pigs
B. Feed: How much Feed the Pigs will consume
C. Truffles: How much the Pigs will produce (see below: Feeding)
D. Mastery: Animal Mastery Ribbons


Prized Pigs stored in the Pen will eat half of the amount of Feed they normally do. For example, a Pig that eats 8 Feed outside of the Pen will eat 4 Feed when inside the Pen. Note: Any Prized Pig that would normally eat an odd amount of feed outside of the Pig Pen will be rounded up by one. For example, a Pig that would normally eat 9 Feed will only need 5 Feed when stored in the Pig Pen. Prized Pigs in the Pen also only require one Speed-Feed for every two Prized Pigs.

Chunk of Clay:

Each time you harvest the Pig Pen you will find a Chunk of Clay, which can be used in exclusive Crafting Kiln Recipes. To learn more about the Crafting Kiln, view the official guide: Crafting Kiln. Chunks of Clay will linger on your farm similar to Prized Crops, so be on the lookout for them after feeding! Fill your Pig Pen all the way to get the most Chunks of Clay when you harvest!

Note: Clicking on the Chunk of Clay will automatically add it to your Inventory.

Additional Information:

  • The timer for your Pig Pen will pause when placed in Storage, and then resume once placed back on your farm.

  • If you do not wish to use the Pig Pen feature, it can be sold (frame only) or stored in your Inventory.

  • If you want to see how much time you have left to harvest, hover your cursor over the Pen.

  • You are limited to one Pig Pen per farm

  • Rotate the Pen to view a different angle!
