@Clive on the subject of evidence for buying grant aided stuff being hugely inflated in price by the grant. Just point Janet in the direction of railway sleepers!
Pre grant £3.50-£4 now they are grant aided (but only in certain areas and schemes) price is nearer £8-£9.
Just received a penalty notice for my van making a food delivery into Birmingham.
As it happened over a month ago I'm due to pay £120.
This is the first time I've ever heard of a CAZ. Tried applying for an exemption but online won't let me proceed. Telephone help is none existant. What other...
.....that drove a tractor and 30' trailer from Stoke to Shrewsbury today and didn't pull in once to let traffic past. (That's over 30 miles on a single carriageway trunk road)
All the good PR that so many in our industry do without any gratitude just gets dumped on the roadside when a pillock...
Philosophy, funny word isn't it.
When I was younger and more progressive n my conventional thinking, Philosophy was one of the last things on my mind. It was for airy fairy academics.

What's your best input?
I think water pipe and electric fencing.
Just listening to Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall on the radio and can't help but think that a 'food education' aspect would add an extra, but logical, dimension to Groundswell.
Not only would it help promote healthy food and eating but also demonstrate to decision and policy makers (and...
I'll just stick this here rather than lose it in another thread. Just take 10 minutes out of your day to read and digest. You'll feel better for it
ELMS is nearly upon us ,but none of us know exactly how it will hinder or benefit us (or the environment) either financially or practically. DEFRA don't know either.
What messages and advice do we need to send out to the politicians, advisors, media and influencers to make sure that farming and...
Is there anyone out there who has a pallet collection service?
We have a stock of pallets on the yard, perfectly good, many only used once. However delivery drivers wont take them back.
