Peas aren't exactly cutting edge though, it's more about getting people to accept lower standards to keep crops out of the animal food chain. I was looking at a wheat crop on a walk this morning - huge grains that our ancestors wouldn't have recognised, like the Belgian

I bagged up 26+kg of rendering fat and 6kg of trim from two Dexter steers for my carnivore customers yesterday - 32kg of uneaten food in most markets. Chefs have been pushing the organ meats, now we need them to get behind the fats.

"At what leaf stage do you graze...?" 🙄 As if the wild herbivores follow the leaf stages around the wildscape. I find it depressing that we're already attempting to turn the alternative system into the conventional one we're supposed to be getting away from.

I'm sure will confirm this scene - the birds hang around above the cows at this time of year, feeding up on insects ready for the long journey back to South Africa.

I get the feeling that most want to make it more complicated than it is, in order to understand simple life processes we apply science and end up narrowing, rather than broadening, our focus - I find it bizarre that we feel a need to prove exactly how and why something works

But whilst we are continually told to eat less meat, a similar emphasis is not being put upon eating less vegetable oil, even though they are supposedly co-products I can't see the sense in using less of one and more of the other.

So wild ruminants are actually responsible for the ice age, but then we started farming them and it brought on global warming...

I was pushed towards research, it was seen as being a 'better' career than farming

The value of owning land, other than as an investment, is the utility it provides. Unless the utility value maintains a sustainable relationship to the capital value then farming it is bound to decline.

When I was at school they actively tried to discourage me from going into farming, which served to do the opposite - are we perhaps being *too* encouraging and therefore not getting the people who really want to do the job?
