Boyton Farm @ The Ginger Piggery

Description

Boyton Farm uniquely sells their renowned Tamworth pork, bacon and sausages, Sussex beef and local breeds of lamb direct from the farm at The Ginger Piggery. The beef and lamb are reared on conservation downland and water meadows. Apart from the bacon, there is no processing using chemicals - it may shorten the shelf life but it enhances the quality of these unique products.

All cuts are available from our resident butcher who hangs the beef and lamb whole, before starting to cut the meat into joints, curing hams and bacon and making sausages. Read more »

Cool Earth

Description

Cool Earth is the charity that works alongside indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction.

We know that saving the rainforest isn’t a new idea. Managing to do it is.

Over the last 40 years, half the world’s rainforests have been destroyed. That’s why Cool Earth decided to go about things differently.

We don’t create reserves or put up fences. We don’t buy land. Instead, we put indigenous people back in control of the world’s most endangered rainforest. Read more »

The Intelligent Plug

Description

The Intelligent Plug explains why it is of such importance to manage the times at which we use electricity, and how to do it now, without waiting for smart meters or other arbitrary centralised initiatives.

Each day in winter, from about 330pm to 800pm we use in the UK seven powers stations' worth of electricity more than we do at other times. This peak can be eliminated by collective action and will result in far less coal being burned. It also will facilitate more renewable electricity.
