December 2009


The year ends with huge sales in December and we see a growth of about 20% for 2009. As we started 2009, the world was full of doom and gloom, and we could not possibly have anticipated this level of sales, the net result being that we have run a bit tight on some products. We have had to stop butter production to make way for more cheese. The value of the pound has clearly helped exports of cheese and vegetables. This is the first time we have ever exported courgette into France. The Lyburn Smoked is also lined up for export as well and Old Winchester continues to cover new territory.
