    Where to sell eggs

    I know. I was surprised when I first came here to hear ´imperial’ measurement terms. The metric system was only introduced after the revolution. It was done badly so napoleon rejigged the imperial system, so a livre (lb) became the name for 500g. The imperial system is derived from the Romans...

    Where to sell eggs

    Ive just started this year. I started with 240 hens and sell the eggs on the side of the road with an egg vending machine. We’re in France so things may be different, here under 250 hens is subject to less rigorous rules. Our aim is to walk, then run. So we’ll go up to 550 in the spring. Once we...

    Any soft fruit growers out there?

    You’ve got some clever crows there. I get some bird damage on cherries, though this year I lost more to wild boar, who came every night And got the low ones, they broke low branches too. Birds tend to prefer to perch away from where they eat, fly in to feed, then return to perch. My orchards...
