The article features the unique Castlefarm shop owned by Peter and Jenny Young who combined their passion for farming and food. What makes their store unique is that it allows their customers to see cows being milked while browsing the shelves. After she started doing farmers' markets, she found out she loves dealing with people and selling her own products. The Castlefarm shop was born on June 2007 and a year later, the store is stocking more of the farm's produce than they had anticipated.
