North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service attended the scene with four fire crews from Kirkbymoorside, Picking, Helmsley and Malton.
Two main pumps and three light pumps were used to ease the flooding.
The pigs were moved into an evacuation pen and all are said to be well. The fire crew said the farmer was 'very appreciative'.
A spokesman said: "The pigs were in around two feet of water.
"An evacuation pen was set up to move the pigs - our crews were on the scene for quite some time."
