Anita Thornhill Jacobson posted lies about a pig she purchased from me being sick and then she posted everywhere that it grew huge. And she has done the same to others she purchased pigs from.  Yet she now has the one pig that was so sick listed on her website as one of her smallest breeders.  She came after us because we had purchased a cpl litters of piglets and resold them she was telling everyone that we were wholesalers yet now she is purchasing litters and reselling them and get this from the same person we had bought from.

 

.....3333px; font-family: verdana,helvetica,sans-serif; background-color: transparent; font-style: normal;">Anita is a trouble maker who starts and posts lies about other breeders and she is the worse of them all.  She doesn't care about any of her animals after they have a litter and she collects the cash she is quick to sell them to whoever will buy, mothers who have profited her will not live out their lives happy and safe in her care, once they have severed their purpose they are gone to the highest bidder. She is a heartless trouble maker and most of the piglets she sells are shipped 10-20 at a time over state lines illegally, mashed in crates and are under age; taken from their mother early to stunt their growth but they will still grow up to be large. Her partner Erin Locks keeps them at her house and regularly they die from diarrhea and dehydration. She doesn't even have them asleep when they neutering them and several have died from hernias when they pulled their testicles out.

 

Just like the boar on her website that she says is the cornerstone of her breeding program NOW.  Well she posted everywhere about his breeder and he had pneumonia and told everyone his skeleton was deformed as well she posted xrays, he was very ill for a long time.  She posted on Facebook asking about him being stunted growth wise since he was so sick for so long.  She knows dam well that pig is only as small as it is because it was sick and she should not be breeding him.

 

Plus Anita and her partner Erin have tried to reverse the pay pal charges for the pigs they purchased from us and also other breeders.  They atempted to steal the pigs without paying for them even to the point Erin lied and said one pig died yet there it is now on Anitas website.

 

If you are in the market for a small pet pig from an honest animal loving breeder you will not find it at California teacup pigs with Anita Jacobson.

Mean as a SNAKE! California Mini Pigs

AUTHOR: Samantha Stelly - ()

I am sure miss jacobsons has her own pigs, and breeds them. Her business looks legit to me.

I do know for a fact she is a very sneaky, mean person on face book, and anywhere she can start drama and confusion. I have seen her manipulate people, use them, and go behind backs of other wise nice people just to make them hate each other. 

she in NO LONGER  California Tea cups, but California Mini Pigs. She changed her name to avoid it being seen on rip off reports when people were catching up to her lies and hate. She likes being number 1 and has no trouble stomping out any and all competition, big and small. she acts like she is your friend, but behind your back she is slashing your throat, and getting new friends who she can pretend that she is top notch and an ally.

Her pigs I have seen are adorable, and she seems to breed non stop all summer. She has employees do all the pig farm dirt work, and rarely even sees the piglets until they are photographed for sales. She is NOT the socializer, her employess of 4 are. Kudos to them.

She is very shady, and did send a year ago a pig to LA with NO micro chip or paper work. On that note she would hang out to dry ANYONE who made that mistake honestly. She Knew what she was doing. and then refused to give the info to the owner who desperately needed it. She could not produce it since it did not exist. Bad Breeder Practices, and not a Good Person in the pig world to any breeder, Big or Small.

Same Address, New name. Same hateful mean person.

I Have been to her place, she's fabulous

AUTHOR: BellaBlu - ()

All I can say is I work for a vet in San Pablo and now have bought 3 piglets from her and this person obviously has not been to her farm. Or talked to her vet for that matter! I have and the vet I work under has talked to Dr. Darling in Chico to get advise and he had nothing but great things to say about her and her place.

All the animals are healthy and friendly, she has about 20 full sized breeders at her farm,  from what I could see, including inside stalls with birthing boxes for the moms, when I was there I saw one box with a very pregnant  sow, one box for a newly delivered litter ( I picked my most recent baby from this litter) and in her sow pen she showed me 2 more sows with milk ready to deliver, so whoever wrote this has no idea of her set up or even been to her house. She raises them there. I asked if she had a partner Erin, she told me Erin was not a partner but a friend and a breeder in Dixon, which is near UC Davis and someone started this rumour a few years ago, said it doesn't bug her because she knows the truth and so do her clients.

I am going to be a breeder in the future when my pigs mature and I have offered to buy her pigs that she is not using for breeding anymore and she won't, they are her pets, she calls them her "kids" and will not part with them, she told me they will live out their lives their as pets, the pets have full run of her 5 acres, which is gorgeous, clean with awesome fencing, all animals have housing and the pigs have heat lamps, she explained that they are exotic, have higher body temperatures than most mammals and get colder faster than us. I looked that up and it's true.

To me this sounds like a vindicitive person, maybe their pigs are big. This site looks like just one big witch hunt, I typed in mini pigs and Posh comes up and Petite Porkers comes up, some breeder in Texas comes up, I think people need to grow up, everyone is just bashing everyone on here! So stupid that society has come to evolve around online reviews rather than meeting someone face to face, see for yourself and a good old fashioned handshake

I have to make a comment though, she did have a sick pick and he got vet care and is over  his pnuemonia, if your husband had pneumonia  would you then say, he shouldn't be a breeder? Working in a vet office we see alot of pneumonia, it doesn't mean you stop breeding an animal, it means you heal it and if they are capable of breeding later on then you do it. Only time will tell if a pig is genetically small, not some illness, good God.

I am commenting on posts about this lady because she is quality, you can go to her house and see all the pigs here, she is not a scam, she is honest about their sizes. She lets you visit as many times as you wish, it's by appointment because she works and has children too, but she will accomodate your schedule as much as you see fit.  So in my opinion I will not buy from someone else unless it's to get some different genetics, but I plan on buying at least 2 more from her litters in the spring, she has referred me to someone in Redding, Florida and Ohio as well to get the diversity I want.  I have referrred at least 5 of my friends and family members to her.

Hidden report!! Anita thornhill Jacobson!

AUTHOR: TellitAll - ()

 California Teacups. Anita Thornhill Jacobson . Percy Pigart Sams.  Sierra Nevada Ranch. californiateacuppigs.com. www.facebook.com.CaliforniaTeacupPigs. 9851 Sterling Creek LN Durham, CA.  Manipulating back stabbing, so called breeder and business owner, Posts lies and starts feuds between others to make herself appear better. She is also NOT a breeder but is a wholesaler, lying to customers when she has no idea about the pigs she is selling. Durham California.

Is high in the scam going on in the Mini Pig world!

 

 

 

 

 Anita Jacobson owner at California Teacup Pigs and Sierra Nevada Ranch Alpacas in Durham CA also owner of Fashion lounge in Chico CA and Bright Beginnings child care in Penn Valley CA....IS NOT A NICE PERSON. She has been starting rumors about many other breeders to harm their buisnesses. Anita came on the scene as a mini pig breeder less than one year ago. Since that time, she has created drama and chaos for many breeders. It is obvious that Anita Jacobson wants to be the top dog in the mini pig industry. Her way of monopolizing the industry is to throw every other mini pig breeder under the bus, one at a time. Since January 2013, Anita and her partner Erin Locks have been starting rumors and posting false internet reports on many breeders/buisnesses even going by false facebook names. She regularly starts arguments between breeders...telling each of them that the other is to blame and then sitting back and watching only to step in when the pot needs to be stirred. She creates misconceptions to purposefully harm others business reputation to gain market share and to try and make herself look good. Anyone considering buying a piglet from Anita Jacobson at California Teacup Pigs should be aware that Anita is not the breeder of the piglets she sells. Anita buys them from several wholesale operations located in Texas and North Carolina. There is no way Anita can guarantee you anything about the piglet you purchase because she does not know the genealogy, health or sizes of the parent or grandparent pigs. All Anita Jacobson at California Teacup Pigs is doing is reselling piglets she buys sight unseen and also has transported to her across state lines without proper USDA required documents or Identification.... litters of babies packed in small shipping crates.  Passing them on to you as pigs she has knowledge of the care, health or size of. Passing them off as pigs she herself has raised lying to both her customers and other breeders alike. This is her regular buisness practise and we are sure it is not only in dealing with pigs.  Please post your dealings with her we would like to hear how she gose after other cometition.
