      Thanks, Sally – it means an awful lot to us, especially with the Superior, only starting to make it for 3 months, after 18 months of trials. Hope all is well with you both, and thanks! Iona x

  2. congratulations and well done, as one of the organisers of the Countryside Pursuits area at the show it was just a shame the rest of the show was cancelled due to the weather in recent weeks and the state of the showground. Sat at work all day bemoaning the weather.

      Thanks, Janet, much appreciated, it means an awful lot to us. And yes, such a terrible shame about the rest of the show – sorry to hear that you were affected too. The parking field didn’t seem too bad, a bit boggy in places – maybe a difficult decision to make on part of the organisers – let’s hope for better next year. Feel for you and can understand bemoaning the weather! Thanks for e-mailing in. With best wishes, Iona

      1. yes so hard when you have worked behind the scenes for the past year planning for the next show ! Saw the post re Julia selling her cheese vat, is she still making her Durham Blue ? Lovely cheese and I have visited her when I was looking at making cheese too !
