    Re: No$h

    Mrs Lucifer used to keep chickens in the garden, but there's too many foxes in our area now for it to be practical.
    I heard that if you tie human hair to the coop it keeps the foxes away. Don't know if that's true....

    There are plenty of small operators who are cottoning on to consumer disatisfaction with the supermarket ethos of price over all who will supply you through the post.
    Through the post? Won't the meat go off??

      Nope, it's sent guaranteed next day delivery in cooler boxes packed with ice packs. It arrives fresh as a daisy.

          The other thing we have given to Europe is freedom -twice.
          Three times. Don't forget the defeat of Napoleon.

            Nope, £7.50 flat charge.

            They also sell some limited samples on eBay for a quid, so you can try a little bit first before committing. For example...

            Pate
            Sausages

              Re: Europe

              Since this thread is descending into knocking the French (I've got no problem with that), I'll help steer it in the right direction.

              Going to war without France is like going deer hunting without an accordian.

              In both cases you leave behind some noisy baggage.

                The French

                I have no problem with the French - it is just that corrupt, reptile, slimeball Chirac I cannot stand. His pomposity and that permanent sneer/snigger/smirk..........I must calm down... time for some hot cocoa.

                  A bit like Bush. He always looks like the idiot farm boy who just discovered a stash of Playboys in the barn.

                    The answer is to buy direct from farmers, but what if you don't live near a farmer? It's just not practical to pop out to Somerset on a Thursday evening to get some lamb. As a result, we're forced to rely on racid junk from the chain supermarkets.
                    www.abel-cole.co.uk/

                    www.donaldrussell.com/

                    There are plenty of websites that offer great tasting food unlike the bland, overfarmed cr@p you get from Netherlands etc that supply Tescos, Sainsburys etc

                    I bought a Tescos organic chicken that was grey, watery and slimy compared to the Able & Cole farm reared chicken which tasted meaty and full of flavour.

                    The problem with food is that supermarkets are destroying taste. Go to any Farmer's Market and pick up fresh vegetables and fruits, some organic, that taste great without covering them in sauces.

                    Problem is, the real cost of meat is higher than you expect from supermarkets but the taste outweighs that. We have got used to supermarket sh1te food at bargain bucket prices and expect that is the normal price for meat. It isn't. Meat has always been fairly pricey, it's just that supermarkets have forced prices down at the expense of taste and quality.

                    Have you ever cut your own asparagus and cooked it with butter and black pepper? Wonderful... not to be confused with the grey-green, bland tasting offerings from Tescos...

                      Can second hyperD's choice of Abel & Cole, I use them to supply my vegetables and fish - would never go to a supermarket again, the quality is just so superior.

                      As previously mentioned, I use www.devonrose.com for meat because of they hefty discounts they give if you buy in bulk (10% for £50, 20% for £200, or a whopping 30% for £350), but there are many, many others. These are another one I have used... www.farmhousedirect.com/.

                      Just say no to supermarket sh1te.
