In the 5 years up to 2008 the number of holdings keeping fewer than 10 fattening pigs rose by 32%. As more people search for 'The Good Life' by keeping animals in their gardens or on smallholdings Elinor Goodman visits Pig Paradise Farm in Wiltshire to attend a pig-keeping training course where they encourage people to stock rare breeds. Elinor learns about breeding, feeding and making it pay.
