Wife of the Chairman of Broadwindsor’s Community Pub, Sara Dyke has issued the following news:
The beginning of meteorological autumn on 1st September also saw the third, very successful Farmers’ Breakfast in the comfortable environment of the White Lion community pub.
28 farmers and family members met at 10am and enjoyed a delicious full English breakfast cooked beautifully by Kate and her family with locally produced ingredients. Izzy Masey, Michelle Hughes and I were the waitresses and heard many murmurs of approval and compliments on the quality of the food. There were lots of empty plates to return to the kitchen which is always a good sign!
The aim of the group with breakfast is not only to feed our hardworking local farmers, wives and farm workers, important as that is, but also to facilitate regular meetings where networking can take place, advice and support can be shared and also to provide an opportunity for education and innovation.
This month saw the first outside speaker attend, kindly organised by Andrew Frampton. The South West representative from Holland Tractors attended and talked about the new generation tractors which can be powered from methane from slurry lagoons.
He also went through tractor development over the last 20 years and other new technologies including driverless automated tractors which are entering the market.
The breakfasts are the first Thursday of each month and if you’d like to attend (this is limited to the farming community) please let Andrew Frampton know by the Tuesday of that week.
Andrew’s email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
