Share this article

The Cotswold Farm Park was Britain’s first ever Farm Park having been established in 1971.

Amongst their many rare breeds they have had great success in providing pigs for both TV and films. They recently supplied an iron-age pig for the BBC series – We Built Britain. “They wanted a pig typical of the Elizabethan era to set the scene for the story. Our pig was bred by our founder Joe Henson who crossed a Tamworth with a wild boar resulting in a pig with a long nose,pricked ears and a lot of hair”

Three of their pigs will be featured in “Fred Claus” which is a new family movie due to be released for this Christmas. Other pigs have been used in a number of costume and period dramas.

There are lot’s of animals to see at the Farm Park and it is a great day out for all the family.
