05/11/19 Price of Milk, Mushrooms, Devil's Pulpit

Many of you tell us you're willing to pay more for your milk - but will that make any difference to dairy farmers?

Many of you tell us you're willing to pay more for your milk - but will that make any difference to dairy farmers? We heard how farmers and processors are under pressure, describing the price of milk as being too low for too long. The British Retail consortium represents the major supermarkets. We ask their spokesperson, Andrew Opie, if retailers should put their prices up.
As a cooking ingredient, the variety of mushrooms available has grown rapidly. Livesey Brothers mushroom farm near the village in Leicestershire has been specialising in the more exotic woodland mushrooms for years. Ben Jackson went to meet Tim Livesey at the farm.
Finnich Glen, otherwise known as the Devil's Pulpit, in Stirlingshire has received a flood of tourists after the location was featured in the TV drama Outlander. Now the farmer who owns the land has come up with a novel scheme to solve the problems caused by a steady stream of sightseers.

Presented by Anna Hill and produced by Beatrice Fenton.
