Sun 25 Aug - Hartley Farm, health and safety on a farm and a rare mammal

Wild About Wiltshire: Marie broadcasts live from Hartley Farm near Bradford on Avon. Five years ago, this huge scale pig farm was not making profit and was becoming redundant. Now, it's not only back producing local meat, but its a business hub for other rural ventures. Find out how things have evolved and why 5th generation farmer Tom Bowles thinks other farms can learn from their experience.

Also, as we get ready for the Bank Holiday Weekend, we find out what health and safety procedures a farm needs to put in place if they want to welcome visitors.

And one of the country's rarest mammals has been discovered on a nature reserve near Salisbury, we meet someone who has helped to bring this about.
