    What do Red Tractor do for their money?

    Average farm business surely pays them £300-500 a year. Can any of their acolytes tell me what they do for their money? Apart from employee's like Guy Smith wanting a "fresh pair of eyes" on his business (albeit unqualified to advise on health and safety and legal aspects) what does everyone...

    Hope Everyone Is Ok?

    I went to the AHDB conference yesterday, and as I sat there, I was thinking how much Levy money was spent on Hotels/Meals and the conference itself. As I looked around the room of 80 or so people, you can spot a farmer a mile off, and I would be surprised if there were more than a dozen actual...
