Future Farms - Martin - New Forest North

Have you heard about Future Farms?

Its a project based in the village of Martin, in the North of the Forest.  I have just cut this from their website -

"Futurefarms is a co-operative, set up in early 2004, whose purpose is to grow food within the parish of Martin in Hampshire, for sale to the people who live there. We are a non-profitmaking enterprise - all proceeds from the sale of our food are used to cover costs and to build up the business."

Our shop is open in Martin Village Hall as follows:

Monday to Friday 9-11am and 5-6pm Saturdays 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
As well as vegetables, eggs, and meat produced by Futurefarms we sell a range of other local produce, including cheese, honey, juice, bread, jams and chutneys. We also sell newspapers on Saturdays (to order) and stock a range of basic groceries."

In November BBCs CountryFile gave us a nationwide airing on television when they came and filmed our activities on a very damp Friday morning for a 5 minute slot in the programme at the end of that month."

Hi Folks

Does anyone know anyone who can best advise on the 'on site' composting of food waste...cooked and uncooked... for a moderate kitchen producing a binload of waste every few days or so...rat proof, non smelly etc but also…
