Hi

For practical information about housing , feeding etc:
Read the articles here
Buy a book(s)
and pretty quickly you'll know all you need to get started.

To help make the decision about whether its the right thing for you, which breed to get, how many etc there is no substitute for getting close to some pigs. Check your local agricultural show and chat to some of the people there. Or go and visit a local breeder - anyone should be happy to let you see their pigs before making the decision to get some.

Hope that helps
Simon
