ITV highlight Organic Fortnight at Sheepdrove


Simon Parkin doing the weather report from Sheepdrove 

This evening we feature on ITV Thames Valley Tonight – for the weather report! It all ties in with Organic Fortnight, linked into the theme “Wake up to an Organic Breakfast”.

Simon Parkin, their weather presenter, met our organic pigs and chatted with Jason Ball from the farm, who pointed out the high animal welfare standards that our pigs enjoy, and the fact that organic food is more planet-friendly.

Broadcast is due about 6.20pm – 6.30pm this evening.

As Simon finished off our 1 minute of fame, the camera man got a call to go down to record the Defra Foot and Mouth Disease press meeting at the Institute of Animal Wealth in Pirbright. Apparently they are finally ready to announce how the FMD farce started. We don’t expect to be surprised! Look out for a report on our blog tomorrow morning…
