Matthew is keen to use all parts of the pig to ensure he’s adding as much value as possible to his future porkers. He has a plan for a "Breaking Down" day, where one pig is broken down into its constituent parts, ready for cooking and preserving. In Italy, it's traditional for the whole community to join in, so Matthew will be enlisting the help of his Italian friends as some familiar faces.
