Hundreds of people experienced a slice of organic life down on the farm at the weekend.

Tours of Eastbrook Farm and walks through Eastbrook Valley, at Bishopstone near Swindon, provided an ideal opportunity to see the wild lifestyle of British Saddleback pigs.

Food manager Tim Finney was delighted with the turnout.

"We must have had more than 230 people here," he said. "And it was great to see so many people from Swindon.

"Usually people travel from miles away to see us but not so many come from the town. This year people in Swindon seemed really interested in our new products.

"We held tasting sessions of a brand new cheese range. It's the only cheese to be produced within the Swindon borough catchment area so we are very excited about it."

The cheese will go on sale for the first time at Wanborough Farmers' Market, Lower Wanborough, on Saturday from 8am until noon.

Eastbrook Farm, one of the leading organic businesses in the country and produces pigs, beef, lamb, milk, potatoes, and a variety of arable crops.
