    Save Our Farms

    Apologies for stating the obvious. We are in a crazy situation where in my opinion, a campaign needs promoting to save/support farming in England. Re-Wilding is throwing money at those that need it least. Look at what's happened to @CopperBeech, a very good farmer who has been stitched up...

    AHDB can feck right off.

    We Eat Balanced 2022 starts today, so thought I would be a good little levy payer and share the social media. Well, that's not happening. WTF is it with this industry ? Why are we so utterly incapable of promoting ourselves - all of us - rather than this constant 'some farms are better than...
