From the New York Times bestselling authors and loving owners of Esther the Wonder Pig, comes a memoir about their new life on the Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary, which is anything but boring.
Steve Jenkins and Derek Walter, had their lives turned upside down when they adopted their pig-daughter Esther–the so-called micro pig who turned out to be a full-sized commercial pig growing to a whopping 600 pounds–as they describe in their bestselling memoir Esther the Wonder Pig. The book ends with them moving to a new farm, and starting a new wonderful life where they will live on the Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary to care for other animals and just live happily ever after…
Or so they thought. People often think about giving it all up and just moving to a farm. In theory it sure does sound great. But as Derek and Steve quickly realized, the realities of being a farmer–especially when you have never lived on a farm let alone outside of the city–can be frantic, crazy, and even insane. Not only are they adjusting to farm life and dutifully taking care of their pig-daughter Esther (who by the way lives in the master bedroom of their house), but before they knew it their sanctuary grew to as many as 42 animals, including: pigs, sheep, goats, rabbits, chickens, cows, roosters, a peacock, a duck, a horse, a donkey, and a barn cat named Willma Ferrell.
Written with joy and humor, and filled with delicious Esther-approved recipes dispersed throughout the book, this charming memoir captures an emotional journey of one little family advocating for animals everywhere.

YOU WILL BE PLANNING YOUR TRIP TO VISIT! This is the second book in the magical Esther the Wonder Pig saga. The first book was about the early days, the fund raising for and the move to the sanctuary, Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary. This second book starts there. It will have you laughing outloud, crying profusely, and by the time you are at the recipes in the back, you’ll be planning your next vacation checking your passport for a trip volunteering or touring the sanctuary in Canada.Steve and Derek are an amazing…

Amazing book & amazing Dads! Everyone should read this book. I loved Esther’s Dads before I read this book & now along with the love I am in awe of them. Everyone should read both of their books.If you follow Esther on her FB page, it’s always lighthearted, sunshine & rainbows. Both books show you the truth about living with a 650 lbtoddler & running a sanctuary. I have been Vegan for over 35 years, Esther let’s non vegans think about becoming more compassionate to all beings. I didn’t want this book to end & cannot wait for the next one.
