Hyden Farm to go Free Range??

A sad state of affairs. It seems that Hyden Farm might drop it's organic status and become free range. In an interview with the BBC, Richard Jones today indicated that organic feed was becoming to expensive and people were buying cheaper produce.

For those who are unfamiliar with Hyden Farm, it is very close to the 'Bat and Ball' pub and Hambledon cricket ground, about a miles walk from Clanfield. You can see the chickens and ducks from the road side.

I sincerely hope that Richard doesn't have to change. We need to put a higher priority and make food a bigger part of our budgets, it is far more important than other trivial stuff.

Support your local farm, buy local and organic, you can't get much better than that!
