It was a challenging start to the year on the farm, and not just because of the relentless rain! After much deliberation we sadly closed our home delivery business, Northern Harvest, at the end of January. With 18 years of weekly food deliveries, hundreds of customers and a dedicated team of staff, this was a very difficult decision to make.
But in farming you can't stand still for long. We've taken the opportunity presented to us with the closure of one part of the business to help develop something totally different at Kenyon Hall: a coffee roastery! In this post I'll introduce our latest venture, including the interesting couple of characters behind it...
I'm James Bulmer. Born and raised on Kenyon Hall Farm, where I spent the first 18 years of my life. After university I spent a decade working in IT (specialising in making maps on computers) before returning to the farm in 2016 to help out my mum and dad. I hope you enjoy these occasional posts and please get in touch if there's something you'd like to know more about and I'll do my best to answer!
