Caz Graham takes a look at how farms are making and selling products for the Christmas market. She visits Low Sizergh farm in Kendal who have a busy farm shop selling all manner of produce from local farms. During our visit the owners Alison and Richard Park had recently had upsetting news that a handful of campylobacter cases have been linked to their raw milk vending machine. They tell Caz about the investigation by the Food Standards Agency and discuss the health and safety regulations for raw milk and how they move on from here. Also in the programme we hear from a goose farmer who collects the feathers to make pillows, a craftswoman who breeds sheep especially for their colourful wool and a fruit farmer who produces festive liqueurs.
