Farming Friends is delighted to be featured in this month’s (February 2009) Countryside Connection Newsletter.
Countryside Connection is a North Yorkshire based community of rural businesses from all over the UK and the US, who work together to connect and promote their businesses through the Countryside Connection Website. You will find a network of B+B’s, pubs, hotels, craft, farms, food producers and other small rural businesses based both around the UK and the US listed on the Countryside Connection site and contributing to the monthly newsletters.
I first came across this website when Helene, the founder of Countryside Connection, emailed me having read the article in the Yorkshire post about farmingfriends. Helene had enjoyed reading the article and wrote to me with the idea of exploring ways in which we might work together.
I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the February edition of the Countryside Connection newsletter which not only features farmingfriends, but my husband’s vintage tractor engineer site as well as features on credit crunch vegetable boxes from farmaround, an alpacas day course in Italy and a weekend Alpaca course in the UK, alpaca slippers – I’m saving up now for some, lambing and farm life in West Wales, beautiful artwork from Maine and mention of an apple spice muffin recipe which I aim to try out with some stored apples from our orchard. I hope that this has now tempted you to pop over to the Countryside Connection and read the February 09 Newsletter.
