James Castle, of Mottymead Farm, Long Crendon, has been trading for 35 years and has seen 200 piglets stolen from his farm in the last five months at a loss of £10,000.

Mr Castle, 67, said: "They are not going to get the better of me. I didn't get through the recession for somebody to do this to me now."

Despite the large amount of money involved, Mr Castle said the police were treating the thefts as a low priority.
