My organic hero

Janet Blikmans: Imagine a beautifully sunny day in August, not too hot, a few clouds in the sky, a slight breeze and rolling hills. I arrive on a 100 acre suckler farm in Wiltshire to spend the day with owner Miss Lydia Otter and farm manager Richard Hurford and many more people I meet throughout the day. As well as a small herd of organic Angus sucklers and their offspring (oh and the not so friendly bull Jaguar) there are chickens, donkeys, pigs, goats, dogs and a cat. When I arrive in the morning, like on any average farm, business is in full flow already.
