Here's an interesting piece from the BBC. It just goes to show that inspite of the recession, there are still openings for entrepeneurs, that quality counts and that the British publics refound interest in 'slow' food continues to gather momentum.

As a fairly new enterprise they seem to tick all the boxes as food heroes.  From their website they offer a fantastic range of traditional food. They also seem to be well connected, selling their products to River Cottage no less.

I love a success story.

I wonder whether with these people, are they moving towards a situation where they produce all the pigs that they use, or are they working in the opposite direction. They mention on their website that they buy in traditional breeds from known and trusted suppliers. Do they have the time and inclination to produce their own or is it more profitable in both time and money to buy in ?
