This is not Brazil or feed lots in the USThe UK remains one of the most sustainable places in the world to produce red meat due to our natural environment and the climate. In fact, without grazing cattle and sheep, as much as 60% of agricultural land in the UK would be taken out of food production, due to the fact it is not suitable for cropping or growing other produce. This would also significantly change the cherished landscapes we have in this country which livestock help to manage efficiently and naturally as well as being home to many other wildlife species.

So sad... please help .. if your Exeter between now and Christmas pop and see what they can do for you... We all need to start looking more local.. I’m sure you will all hear there’s nothing here any more!! Support folk having a go, don’t throw all your cash online/ amazon ect.. If we all made 1 in 3 purchases locally rather than big national and international companies , just think what that would do for local towns, small businesses .. young folk being adventurous and trying to succeed! I hope you find the culprit and rescue your takingsRunning a small business is tough, super tough at the moment, spend and footfall are massively down and costs never stop rising. I love my new smaller shop but I’m back in same position I was in in the big shop, namely that I’m not paying myself enough. So I’ve found myself a great job 3 days a week, we close on Mondays, I work 2 days in the shop and I pay my staff member for 3 days. Our turnover is massively down, but we were really hoping for a great Christmas period to get us through the hardships of January. Then yesterday happened. I utterly stupidly popped my cash box down near the steps that separate the front & back of my shop, then went to grab my cup of coffee from the sink. I heard someone in the shop, so went straight out. A thoroughly dodgy looking bloke started asking me about fabric. I realised he was not in Bunyip for fabric, checked my phone, my purse, the till... he left... then I realised the cash box had gone. A whole weeks cash takings gone in a moment. So utterly devastated. Police are called, CCTV is checked, they have him entering and leaving the shop. I don’t know if they have a picture of his face yet. Wonderful customers and friends see my distress and bring me hugs TMa2 Hair and the kindness of @wildhivedesign still makes me well up. The moral of the story is never ever leave anything unattended in a public place. BUT the outcome is that I need you shop local this Christmas, shop small, shop craft, shop Bunyip. I don’t want to not have this wonderful shop in this wonderful community but I can only survive if you walk down the hill to see us... (or virtually at www.bunyipcraft.com or MadebyBunyip on Etsy!) Stay Safe lovely people xx ... See MoreSee Less
I have a request... We now have a trip advisor presence. If you have been on a tour or a tasting to the vineyard , could you leave a review of your visit? Good or bad... I’m not asking anyone to say anything untrue... just reviews gives us a better presence. Also if you ate at the Tuckers Arms afterwards.. give them a shout too! It’s all part of the Dalwood team theme which Craig Mcgowan and Tracey McGowan are a big part of the machine!
