Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Cash Cow


The is much angst in the farming community here in the UK about the price of milk, the supermarkets and the global cream market have the farmers backed into the corner.

Here Mr Uphilldowndale debates the issues with a very fine cow.

The destination of this cow’s milk is less complicated than most, it will make very tasty cheese at Sharpham above the river Dart. They make wine too which is also very tasty (but not from milk obviously).

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. That first cow looks about ready to pop, poor dear!

  2. Cow milk wine…..that might be interesting! 🙂

  3. I’m totally on the side of the farmers in this debate – they’re being treated very badly.

  4. I think a Dane will understand the cow’s language too 😉 – as we have long traditions of milk production too – and similar problems for the farmers I suppose…
