Pennywell Farm, near Buckfastleigh, has become world-famous in recent years for breeding the Pennywell miniature pigs. The pigs’ popularity is such that as well as being part of the farm attraction for day visitors, there are some very special experiences just for adults wanting to get up close to these cute and cuddly little porkers.
