Doesn’t Helen keep or had some goats?
Pat has a small flock of them. I think there was some talk of Helen
using their milk to make cheese but I can't remember what became of that.
I don't understand what has happened to any of the dairy activity. If, as
seems to be the case, they are not currently making ice cream or cheese,
what are they doing with all the milk?
One of the stories in the first week or two of the new format TA covered
this. Helen was desperately trying to find a dairy which would buy the
milk, to avoid having to dump it.
 Or, possibly, someone who could sell her a supply of milk bottles,
so that she could sell it through Jazzer. I think she was trying to sell
the milk (and that she, eventually, succeeded) but I can't remember for
Thanks, I'd forgotten that.
I heard a piece about cheese production during this plague recently. The
cheesemakers with the greatest problem were those producing soft cheeses.
Some had made adjustments to hard cheese. One had always done this when he
had too much milk but had made little effort to produce a consistent hard
cheese. His customers were happy to accept whatever he produced under
whatever daft name he gave each batch but he'd been trying harder recently
to 'standardise' the flavour and consistency.
