Gloria Hook, a newbie bee keeper making a buzz
This week we stay at home to maintain social distancing and Jim chats with his long-suffering wife Gloria. Glo, as she is affectionately known, is a newbie bee keeper. Although she’s had hives for a few years she only took up the actual bee keeping herself a couple of years ago. This podcast should hopefully quell the fears of anyone else who has thought about getting into bee keeping but always thought it would be too difficult.
Charles Smith - Jones - Author and wildlife management expertWe are joined by Charles Smith-Jones, an all round countryside man who specialised in wildlife management after completing a full military career in the Royal Welsh Fusiliers. Charles is the author of four countryside pursuit books which I recommend to all our listeners. They are packed with useful information and accompanied by a large library of photographs. Well worth having one, or more, on your coffee table!
Nigel Sampson - Founder of Holme Farmed VenisonA Yorkshireman who fell in love with deer whilst working on the Isle of Jura, Nigel is playing a key role in the countryside pursuit arena by bringing game meats to the general public. His passion for farming and game has enabled him to create a professional nationwide distribution network of game meats into retailers, the public, supermarkets and hospitality sectors alike. We need more people like Nigel to champion the sustainability of British game.
