Countryfile got in touch with me after seeing this blog. They wanted to know if I could really survive without using a supermarket. Good God, is it really so outlandish? I’m sure that Grange isn’t the only small town with no supermarket, but lots of good independent small shops. Living in Grange makes it easy for me to keep my pledge and I was chuffed that Countryfile did some filming in Grange to prove the point.
After Grange we went with Adam Henson to the farm, where I introduced him to my Wagyu catle. It was perishingly cold, but in typical Countryfile fashion we did some cooking outdoors, on a barbeque. Adam tried some Wagyu steak and was suitably impressed – I only hope that mine will turn out to be as good.
After the screening tonight I got an email from Peter Gott, who is well known for teaching Jimmy Doherty to raise pigs- “having seen you on the telly I am reassured that like me you have a wonderful body for radio!”. Never a truer word.
