23rd September 2009 – No, I didn’t take one home…

…but I wanted to.

I had a really interesting commercial shoot today on a local pig farm.  The lovely Adrienne from PR firm HotHouse Comms hired me to shoot for a press release celebrating the fact that a large national catering company, Baxter Storey, had committed to using 100% British-produced meat.  For those of you reading from other parts of the world, this is great news because the UK has higher standards for animal welfare in farming when compared to the rest of Europe – something I heartily approve of.   Farmer George (above left), kindly welcomed John from Baxter Storey (middle), myself, Nick, Adrienne, Mark and Pete onto his beautiful land in the heart of Hampshire to look around.  The highlight of my morning was definitely getting to play with some day-old piglets (above right, obviously) who stole the photographic thunder (sorry gents).  It is good to know these lovely beasts are well cared for by George, Nelly and team.  Who’d have thought crawling around in pig poo could be so much fun?  Thank you for the welcome gentlemen, and it was great to meet you all.  Special thanks must go to Nick, who acted as my highly–efficient impromptu assistant for the day – we won’t mention that particular picture of me in the mud…
