These pigs at Farrowby Farm are fed pignuts, cereal based food and occasionally bread and potatoes. Here they can be seen snuffling in the ground for food such as plant shoots. In summer this field is full of elder. The plants give the pigs shelter from the sun as they can get sunburn. Picture taken 15th January 2007 at Farrowby Farm, Hertfordshire.
