    CS on Traditional Orchards- unwise?

    You could just get the trees out and you will make so much mess that you will have to cultivate and plant the land with a crop at the end of it. DO NOT go down the EIA route as it will end badly, however I am not sure you actually need it. What is the land described as under BPS. If it is not...

    The Vegetarian Butcher

    I am much less concerned about this than you seem to be. There has been growth in Vegan and to a lesser extent vegetarianism but this has been from a very low base. The climate change people have probably influenced this more by the number of educational establishments that have misguidedly...

    Lpg price

    Not sure where you are but the price here has only been around half of that and Kerosene is very pleasantly clean burning especially through modern burners.

    Lpg price

    Change to Oil. You won't regret it. The whole LPG market is a cartel. I had my own tank for several years and had it checked for the statutory inspections which were fine until it got to 10 years old and then it was cheaper to buy a new tank.

    CS on Traditional Orchards- unwise?

    Do you have a long term plan for the Orchards? If you are happy for them to remain and be maintained and if they are varieties of apples that may have value then they could be worth keeping and take the money. Are they traditional trees which can have sheep grazed under them? But if they are of...

    Beef / Lamb & Pig Price Tracker

    Organic Cattle Wormer

    Just one of the reasons why I wouldn't go Organic. You could house them or pen them for a couple of days after you have treated them so the active ingredient has passed through the animal.
