In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Meet Magenta the Pig at Thompson Farm

Thompson Farm in Conway, South Carolina has been a family tradition since the 1800's. Meet Magenta the pig, she's more like another member of the family than a typical farm animal.

Magenta the pig has called Thompson Farm home for around 8 years, and she’s one of the family.  She’s not just any pig, either.  While the Thompson’s aren’t exactly sure how old she is, they do know she’s been interactive with people for most of her life.  Some might call her a local celebrity.  When Magenta weighed only 8 pounds, she could be seen at Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede attraction, during it’s time in Myrtle Beach.  We sat down with owner, Scott Thompson, and learned just how pet like she is.
