Understand the Magic

What truly makes Capon Springs different from other resorts are all the “extras” that you just won’t find anywhere else. Operated by multiple generations of the same family, you are welcomed into a warm and caring atmosphere where everything is based on the honor system.   The set-menu and meal times mean all you have to do is show up when the bell rings!

When was the last time you and your family had an opportunity to completely “unplug” and spend quality time together?  Now imagine how great it would be that as your Capon experience draws to a close, you actually feel completely relaxed, restored, and reenergized- and already dreaming about your return!

We know many of you greatly missed the tradition of visiting the pigs at Hog Heaven last season. So, you will be very happy to hear that the pigs are BACK!  We welcomed 15 pigs (9 boys and 6 girls) to their new home at Capon’s Hog Heaven farm on Wednesday.  These piggies were born just down the road in Wardensville, WV.  They came from two litters and are 6-8 weeks old.  Right now, they weigh about 20 pounds but by the end of the Capon season they will have grown to around 225 pounds!

Last week, guests were asked on our Facebook and Instagram pages for help in naming the pigs.  We received over a hundred submissions–we’ve never had so many great names to choose from!  After much debating and discussion, these are the names we selected: Rona, Rosy, Fern, Lily, Tulip, Ivy, Cher, Sonny, Ziggy, Arlo, Dude, Goat, Olaf, Sven and Paz!  (You can catch a glimpse of each pig in the slideshow below.)

On Wednesday, Farmer Sam Brill (a fourth generation Austin family member and Farm Manager) along with the help of his 4 year old nephew, Everett, got the pigs tagged and settled into their new home.  Farmer Sam has been raising pigs at Hog Heaven for 12 years.  “I like raising pigs because they are one of the smartest farm animals.  You can train them, much like you can train dogs.  They are also one of the only farm animals that can be on self-feeders… they don’t overeat.  They eat until they are full. Other animals (like cows, goats and sheep) cannot be on self-feeders,” said Farmer Sam.  One fun fact Sam shared:  pigs don’t sweat… which is why you can so often find them in the mud cooling off!

You are welcome to visit the pigs anytime during your Capon stay.  Hog Heaven is just a short walk on a gravel road down from the fish pond.  (Tip:  The shale pit is on the way—make a stop here before or after you visit the pigs to dig for fossils!) The pigs are still getting used to their new surroundings, but before long, they will happily eat grass right out of your hand.  Also, check the schedule for our weekly pig feedings when you can help serve the pigs up some breakfast!
