Something new… a bit of socialising for retired farmers.. we think this is a wonderful idea and support it fully.. would love to make it a regular event and to meet some folks from nearby who we don’t know yet.  In our rural community there are many so together let’s get them to come along and meet others 🙂

We are delighted to announce that we have been nominated for the D & G Retail Business Awards.  After a year that brought more trials than tribulations we can honestly say this really warmed our hearts.  Good luck to everyone involved as it is a competition at the end of the day though I am certain every single business nominated is a treasure in it’s own right.
