If you love biodynamics, you'll love this. Ralf Roessner has chosen our farm as the UK venue for his talk and workshop over the early May Bank Holiday weekend.
We couldn't be more honoured, because Ralf is a big name in biodynamics on mainland Europe. He is a passionate bee-keeper and biodynamic farmer who produces light root (Chinese yam), which is prized for its medicinal properties. In addition, he has worked in the field of water research for over 20 years. Ralf specialises in natural medicine, nutrition, healing water technologies and education in the “subtle energy fields”. He is the author of The Light Root and The Genius of Bees and the Elemental Beings.
On Friday 3rd May at 8pm he will be giving a talk on 'The Initiate Consciousness and the Mission of the Folk Spirit'. This is followed by a workshop the next day on Saturday 4th 10am - 5pm , 'How can I develop a consciousness of the planet in order to gain access to the authentic beings of the animal, plant and mineral kingdoms?' A talk with practical development exercises.

We had a touch of stardom, when BBC Essex popped by at the farm as part of their Sunday morning radio programme the Quest. It's a programme where listeners have to work out from the clues locations in Essex. The presenters then visit the location, where they then get the clue for the next destination. It's hugely popular with listeners.
Spencer was giving the cows breakfast when they arrived. But it was Bright Eyes that stole the show, with his cameo role as the dancing cow. You can listen to the programme here, we're 55 mins in and after the news too.
There's no stopping Team Lauriston. Just a month after joining the Colchester Market, we've now started trading at The Bell Inn Farmers' Market, Tolleshunt Major too. Our first visit couldn't have been more auspicious. The weather was stunning, giving us the first taste of spring, and there was lots of interest in our eagerly awaited stall. We are pleased to say, our meat sales did particularly well for a first market and we anticipate lots of repeat customers.
The market is extremely popular with the villagers and the clay pigeon shooting behind the pub is a great draw. The Bell Inn is less than ten minutes drive from the farm, so it's not only extremely easy to get to but will be great for increasing local interest in the farm and our produce. We look forward to the next market on Sunday 31st March 9am - 1pm. If you're nearby, then do drop by.
