14th September 2020 - Doom & Gloom from inside the Smoke Plume

There is no doubt that 2020 has defied all expectations. As I write this, 45 minutes past sunrise, it is almost completely dark outside due to the massive amounts of smoke from wildfires. Although the farm has been spared the worst of the impacts, some of our staff and many of you have not been so fortunate. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who is on the frontline of the multitude of disasters this year has wrought.
