The news is full or what we should or shouldn't eat at the moment, and now it's a year since it was revealed that horsemeat was in so many supermarket burgers and ready meals. It exposed the extent of a food chain which was pretty much untraceable and global. Most of us were shocked as to how this could have been going on, adding to the realization that we couldn't trust what was on the label or know what we were eating.
It was a reminder to us of why we are doing what we do here at Higher Hacknell Farm and maybe we are right in our belief that 'small is beautiful'; when things get too big-whether they are supply chains or supermarkets, they get beyond our control. If you'd like to know more about our complete organic integrity and how the supply chain at Higher Hacknell starts at one side of our farm yard and ends at the other, please read our blog
