I drove past a farm in Kings Langley (Herts) today advertising raw milk for sale. I wonder how much they sell? It's an affluent area, lots of Guardian readers to give it a try. Good luck to them.

I bought a Fastrac from Oliver's, just near the M25 flyover.

Might be the same place. Just off the M25, head in to Kings Langley, first farm on the left.

Our pasteurising plant is a slow old job, having gone clear on our annual TB test today :cheers: I am going to try & get a raw milk licence. It's all we've ever drunk & done us no harm :D

If, as I understand it, commodity prices are supply and demand (admittedly with some distortions due to fiddle with free markets around the world) then I am inclined to agree that it will only be a disaster of some form that will shorten supply. Am I right in thinking that the best years for farming following depression have been war time?
I recently found a sale catalog for my Grandfather's small herd in Dec 1945. It has been a steady decline of Dairy since then in this area as milk produced more easily in wetter areas, transport less of a problem, consumption of milk reduced per head of pop and folk realising that starting up a combine once a year beats getting up in the middle of the night.

What about the borrowed money that farmers don't speak about.

No-one see CountryFile last night?
Cattle theme! :o

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0 ... ttle-theme

Never usually watch it but Twitter exploded with public horrified that cows could be kept in sheds all year round! :roll:
... & then a bloke peddling FreeRangeDairy (cows grazing in summer) as if it's something that's rare & public should pay extra for it ... when 85% of British dairy farms operate that way anyway! :x

The BBC always scream about being fair, open and honest since their competition fixing, oh, and their presenters fucking underage kids but when it comes to honest, open journalism, they are a disgrace.
The entire corporation is run by left-wing, agenda driven twats.
