Save The Bacon - The Farmer's Market Delivering Organic food To Your Door

Save The Bacon specialise in supplying regional organic foods to the general public in the UK. Their meat comes from small organic farms where it is produced with care and kindness. Below is an article giving you their background and ethics.

Background

Having farmed intensive cereals with chemicals in the 1960,s, and 70,s it became clear that there were a few problems afoot. Weeds became resistant to herbicides, insects to insecticides and the antibiotics being fed to pigs and poultry were not working and passing on bacterial resistance to humans - this did not seem good! On top of all this the organic food we produced was as likely to end up in a grain mountain and eventually dumped in some country at the other side of the world to the detriment of its native farmers. Not only that but it was clear that the great British public wanted to know where their organic food came from and how it was produced.

We started to farm organically in the early 1980's and all went well, the public poured in to the farm where they could pick their own eggs, see animals, touch the pigs, shop at the farm shop etc. Then came the recession - no money + no organic conversion subsidy = hard times. We stopped farming and moved to a nearby village 12 years ago. With a wealth of experience in growing, processing, retail, cooking and most importantly eating good wholesome organic food behind us, we thought it would be a good idea to do something really new. It was then that we learned to switch on a computer.

Carol had seen an advert in the paper that said that there was to be a computer course that did the basics, ie. Word, E Mail, WWW, Excel etc. It was to cost £35 and held in Hackleton Baptist Chapel back room one day a week for a year. We went and learnt how very annoying these pieces of electrolysed plastic could be.

Never mind, help was at hand. A young man who knew all about these infernal machines sent to drive us mad, who designed a website for us. It is said that a kind word and a few pints in the countryside goes a long way. This was the start of our first Save The Bacon website. Similarly an expert on Access created a database for us which combined with the website.

That's it really, and Save the Bacon has grown steadily over the years.
