This article relates the farming business of the Kimber family near Wincanton in Somerset, England. The Kimbers have been farming for over 300 years. The family got a name for producing Christmas turkeys with all the trimmings. In addition to all the pork, bacon and chicken that people were buying, it became apparent that sales from the farm gate were becoming a serious enterprise and warranted serious attention. So in the late 1990s the old cow stalls next to the house were converted into a proper butchery with a counter displaying the farm's produce.
