Our Scottish Independence Poll

The Poll here at on Scottish independence provoked a vigorous response. At 3pm today (Wednesday 17th September), the results were as follows:

Do you have significant Scottish links?

  • 38% Yes
  • 62% No

Would Scottish independence impact on us here (in the Peak District)?

  • 47% Yes
  • 41% No
  • 12% Don’t know

Should Scotland be an independent country?

  • 36% Yes
  • 63% No
  • 1% Don’t know

This indicates a significant minority (38%) of our respondents have strong ties to Scotland, that overall we are split on the impact of Scottish independence on us here in the Peak District (a difference of 6%), but that a majority (63%) of us want the Union to continue. Well tomorrow is the actual referendum day and we will find out on Friday what Scotland votes.

Local Beef for Sale

 I am due to be sending one of my locally grown White Park bullocks to slaughter soon and i am going to be selling the meat privately.

The White Park Cattle Society says “White Park beef is lean, tasty, well marbled and it cooks beautifully. When properly hung for 3 weeks or so joints will shrink very little on cooking and the natural juices produced will be full of flavour. White Park is best cooked at a slightly lower temperature, over a longer period of time than modern beef breeds. The meat is much sought after and sold by name in top restaurants and butchers.

AA Gill said in the Sunday Times: “The white park, a breed I’ve never eaten before and had always assumed was purely ornamental, was really excellent: softly chewy, with that strong, distinctive, almost corrupt flavour of proper beef … it was the best steak I’ve had this year

Orders are being taken for quality rare breed beef, it will come in a box and will be labelled and bagged, you will get:-
3kg Mince
3kg Stew
1kg braising steak
2 Roasting Joints 1kg each
1 Pot roast
4 Sirloin Steaks
2 Fillet Steaks
2 Rump Steaks

All for a Bargain price of £85, if you were to go to a butchers for the same amount it would be more than double that! you dont get much more local than beef thats been reared right here in Parwich!

So get your orders in asap to avoid dissapointment, you can either ring or text 07813857014 or email
