We have started lambing this afternoon so we will have milk soon, two ewes lambed today and we have three lambs which has given us a sense of purpose and at least we will go back to doing more of what we should be doing - farming and making cheese.
Huge thanks to the Defence of Artisan Food committee especially Joanna Blythman and all those who came we had an amazing turnout and it was really constructive meeting with Food business, Chef's, Food lovers and worried people attending from all over Scotland, England and Ireland.
After the last six months we feel this is a really important group as action by authorities can be really isolating and damaging for small businesses who do not have large technical, marketing and PR departments equipped and prepared to deal with government agencies and the media. Whether there has been a problem or not is is important that reputations and the damage to the industry involved are minimised and public confidence is not lost.
