GOOD day out

Last week we welcomed Abi Silvestre Editor of Hippy Shopper and Sagar Shah The Hempreneur to visit Collabear Farm, meet the team and take the farm tour. After a relaxed lunch with Henry, Nancy and Kellie the guests were taken up to see bayles of hemp fibre on our fields and Henry talked them through some of the history of hemp. From mighty beginnings as one of the key fibres for the country, hemp still has a crucial role to play in creating strong, environmentally sound material for everything from building blocks to BMW car doors.

The GOOD team took the guys on a whistle-stop tour of the grain store, where they were privvy to our cleaning and pressing process, and they got to see our new bottling plant (see Abi’s blogpost showing Henry looking stylish in food safe garments) and before home time they got to meet the real stars of the show Ollie, Tom, Vlvin & Nita (our donkey and horses!)
