 :pig: We on the the Pigs Paradise course that Tony York and Carron runs in Wiltshire last saturday. It was absolutely brilliant!! My boyfriend is now a convert and couldn't keep his eyes off the OSD piglets running around :D So much information to take in but his talk on the financial side of pig keeping makes a whole lot of sense. If anyone wants a course to go on we highly recomend it :pig:

We did it years ago and thought it was great. Glad standards are being maintained!  ;D

I did it two years ago with my daughter and it was fabulous - since then have had weaners of various varieties and now have our very own Darcey and her 8 piglets - one week old! Not a path I intended to tread but great fun, great food and great entertainment. Tony is a good resource post the course too. Very helpful. Good luck on the new ventures! Sal  :pig:
