New Forest Marque Member, Andrew Parry-Norton, has been featured in a podcast by Humans of Hospitality.

In the programme Andrew talks about the peculiarities of Commoning history. You can also discover how, and even more fascinatingly, why, we are seeing the return of regional native breeds such as Ruby Red cattle and Saddleback pigs, rather than the influx of larger continental breeds.

The producer of the programme highlight how ‘it makes good business and environmental sense, especially now that the Commoners have their own shared brand, the ‘New Forest Marque’. In essence, to support a more artisan, kinder, traditional approach to farming, Andrew needs to charge around 10% more and supply more directly to the end consumer’.
