A large part of our business is organic vegetables, and the question being put to me is,’How is it going’, assuming that the organic vegetable trade is in a state of collapse. This is clearly not the case at the moment. For those with well organised box schemes, sales are only marginally down, whether this is the case in a years time remains to be seen. Organic veg boxes remain to be good value and unaffected by last years, input costs such as chemicals and fertilizers. To the left Broad Bean seedlings well on their way, despite the cold spell and the inane blabbering of Politicians and Bankers all squabbling over who split the milk and the Fat Cats waiting to lap it up!! Cheese sales can only be described as remarquable and some really good cheese in the pipeline. We will be at IFE on stand N1943/J
