The Politician and the Pigs

Listen in pop-out player

The Minister for Farming, Food, and Marine Environment George Eustice returns to his agricultural roots in West Cornwall. Before entering politics he worked on the family farm, growing strawberries. The enterprise, Trevaskis Farm, has now been taken on by his brother Giles. He's transformed the business into a multi-million pound enterprise which includes a farm shop and restaurant. Giles also has a passion for the rarest native British pig breed, the Lop. The Eustice brothers talk pigs, politics, and what it's like to have a farming minister in a farming family.

Produced and presented by Sarah Swadling.
