MINI pigs have made a his­toric farm their home after ap­pear­ing on the small screen.

Kew Lit­tle Pigs held a launch day on Satur­day, as it moved in to its new home at La­timer Min­ster, at Stam­p­well Farm, be­tween Bea­cons­field and Ger­rards Cross.

The mi­cro pig breeder is hous­ing 14 pigs, in­clud­ing eight piglets, on a three-acre plot among the cherry and plum or­chards.

The land is owned by La­timer Min­ster church, which is lead­ing a project to re­store the Saxon era farm. The pigs have starred in Chan­nel 5’s The Se­cret Lives of Pets and one named Boe ap­peared in Bri­tain’s Next Top Model.

Owner Olivia Mikhail said: “Satur­day was our launch and now we’re open for peo­ple to come and play with the pigs, learn how to keep them or buy them.

“It all started be­cause I went to the church after hear­ing they may have land, it’s taken eight weeks to get it ready but we’re all set up now.

“We’re prob­a­bly the big­gest mi­cropig farm in Eng­land.”
