We have been lucky enough to get in front of the camera twice recently and the results have been brilliant. It’s all in the edit apparently.
Alex Ledger filmed us for Topsham TV talking about life on the Game and the Topsham sausage. This was great fun and made us think a lot about our business and the important values we have in it. Something we seem to keep coming back to when we are talking is working with local companies who share our values and doing things because they just feel right. I am sure you won’t read that in any management book, well you will when we make one! We have been thinking about our values: worthwhile work, a shared goal and constant encouragement. This is what seems right to us at the moment. Thanks Alex for making us think.

Colourburn also did some filming at the Exeter Food Festival and were kind enough to edit some of the footage for us to make this great short film. I think they really captured the way Pete and I work together and how we feel about what we do. Great work and we really look forward to working with you in the future.

Our Project for this month We are working on a new sausage this month and we are hoping it will be a big hit. The Devon Frank a Haute Dog. This is your all American awful hot dog sausage except it is made with prime Devon pork and no additives. It has its first outing on 4th July at Exeter Uni and on the 5th July at Taste Street Food in Tiverton. This is a great project and we have Eat The Smoke to thank for talking to us about making Frankfurters. Thanks for working with us and sharing our values.
