Paying tribute to a true local food champion

It was with great sadness that we learnt of the passing away, after a sudden illness, of Pat Champion of Badgers Mead Farm. Pat and her husband Neville have for many years been supplying wonderful Kelly Bronze Turkeys and delicious Organic Badgers Mead Farm eggs to local shops, including The Stores in Rushlake Green. Our sincerest condolences go out to Neville at this sad and difficult time.
