Joseph is a 31-year-old man who not only has this piggery, but also runs a retail shop on the side. Him and his lovely wife have two children that both attend school.

In 2010, Joseph decided to start his piggery because his children's school fees were getting high and he wanted to be able to pay them easier. He believes that as an honest businessman working with his butcher clients he will be able to build his piggery to have over 500 pigs. But, the main obstacles standing in his way to this goal are expensive feed and the fact that pigs eat so much.
