Probably, like The Archers, part of a post war push to encourage agricultural production (even got his National Service deferred).

How times change. It shows food was once a valued commodity.

However, one thing never changes..

....everyone, no matter who or where they are, HAS to eat EVERY day.

Funny how government seems to have lost sight of the value of home produced food.

And the rosettes were displayed in the butchers to show the quality of what they sold.
