    Jamie Blackett

    I have to confess to not having heard of him before, but thought it made a very refreshing change to hear someone talking up British Farming on radio 2 as he did today.

    Carbon audits.

Both last year and this, we lambed outside during the autumn and winter, with very few real problems (other than Dr Fox last winter!).
