have spoken to someone locally who can do a short run digital label, so am formulating a design (easier said than done).

Thank you Border....Ill be doing updates via Facebook so you can all look there at my business page  killibury garden machinery and smallholding....

the more 'likes' I get the better apparently, although I cant really lose sight of the fact that just because people are looking at it, dosnt mean they will be customers.  I would imagine for hatching eggs this isnt going to be an issue - and in fact Ive already had 2 people ask for eggs via facebook, but selling the cider needs footfall - so Im trying to rope in locals.

Finally got confirmation from Revenue & Customs - just waiting for TS now......

We have Spotty Dog Cider in 2 pubs now, and a couple more will stock from easter onwards.  Ive had great wholesale sales over Christmas, and am looking forward to doing some shows starting in March.
Im taking on a young part timer (starts Tuesday) and looking forward to a good year.

Just had our first Try and Buy weekend with TENs.
Quite frankly, would not do again.  Very little footfall, despite loads of advertising, signs on the main road etc.
But we are very popular with local pubs and cafes.

I have a Food Festival coming up and then Liskeard Show in July, then nothing till Wadebridge Christ,as shopping.

But, Ive already sold 2/3rds of the 1600L I had for sale, so not complaining.
