Steve Hart from Downham Market in Norfolk has just been named Pig Farmer of the Year.
He recently swapped his overalls for a dinner suit to accept the award at a glittering Farmers' Weekly ceremony hosted by Fiona Bruce.
He won the award for the high welfare standards on his farm.
In the early 1990s Steve invested his last £500 into pig farming.
His company - Norfolk Free Range - now supplies one of the country's biggest supermarkets and a well-known restaurant chain.
