12/09/2022 Rising Farm Costs and Goats

Rising costs are forcing farmers to reduce the amount of food they can produce. Charlotte Smith hears how feed prices are up by a half, while fertilizers cost up to three times as much as they did this time last year. The Government plans to cap energy prices but will it be enough to keep putting food on the supermarket shelves? Also, a farmer explains how diversifying into keeping goats for milk, meat and other products has saved his farm. Presenter: Charlotte Smith Producer: Natalie Donovan Editor: Dimitri Houtart
