Organic does have accreditation and a set of legal standards.

Was told that arable farmer had been telling people his regenerative practices meant no chemicals were routinely used.
🙄

"Organic" isn't really legally defined in the UK. Yo need to have approval from one of a number of "organic bodies"

Bit like saying you'd need approval approval from a gun club to get a shotgun certificate

gamble, £105 looks dear to us, but you are another 80 miles on, and with fuel costs, fert price and weather, like l said, it's a gamble, lorry drag, 30 tonne ish, could have bought you 1 and a bit, cows in holsworthy today, another flying trade.
But milk price still lagging behind inputs, we are +2.2 jan, and +1.5 feb, welcome anyway, what's happening with cornish processors.

No. They have been down in there original form for maybe 20 yrs now. So didn’t feel the need. I think the local walkers enjoy them 🤣
but are they 'official' footpaths ? A few around here, are claiming they have 'created' a path, because they have walked it for x years, luckily, only one path here, and 'obvious' route, tried to alter it, to go around the yard - nice track, and 'not on my life' brigade came out. Just put some f/path arrows up, to go on the track, and in 8 yrs, not one complaint:scratchhead::scratchhead: not even them that objected.
