I was recently drawn into a “GetUp” or some petition campaign to save the farm of David Blackmore. It was in danger of being closed down by nearby residents, and, in part due to the influence of the petition I signed - started by pony-tail forcing chef Neil Perry - the State Government has intervened to save it.

Not sure how I feel about government intervention, but I have a soft spot for this brand since the 90s when we did all the translating and interpreting for him when he first imported the wagyu genetics to get his herd started.
